Hello, hello! Another month is here! Can you believe it? And in my scrappy world, that means that it's another reveal day over at Stuck?! Sketches!! WOO!HOO! Here is the sketch by the wonderful Laura Whitaker the team played with this time around:
And here's my layout:
I must admit that at first, the sketch did intimidate me a tad, but once I started flipping it around, it came to me. Used tons of Basic Grey's Bow Ties collection on this one, stuck on a My Mind's Eye b-side piece of kraft patterned paper (L-O-V-E the natural fibers you can see it in!). Also used a Jillibean Soup word sticker, an American Crafts chipboard title piece, Making Memories black staples, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, a Martha Stewart border punch, a Close to My Heart metal hinge, pieces of Stampin' Up cardstock, and why, yes, some stitching using a Close to My Heart stitching template and some DMC floss. Oh! And my favourite part of this design - a Nicole Nowosad cut file made available for free over at Scrapbook & Cards Today, that I layered right over this awesome photo of my son, Louis-Olivier, taken by Philippe Dumas way back in 2011. The cut file just brings the focus right back to his sweet, little face.
