Hello, hello! May is here, can you believe it?! The year is flying by so fast I truly can't keep up! ;) On that note, let's start the month with a Stuck?! Sketches reveal. YAHOO! Here is the Laura Whitaker sketch by which the design team was inspired:
And here's my design:
Used tons of Authentique's Pride and Anchored collections on here. Bought the Pride collection a few years back to make one of my brothers a mini-album of his trip to Washington D.C., and discovered that the Anchored collection had awesome background papers that matched the Pride collection papers. Win win for sure! And who would have thought that such colours would work for a pic of girl's first birthday? But they are absolutely perfect for this photo of ME (Imagine!) on my first birthday way back in 1979!! No pink in sight!! ;) I also splashed a few extra embellishments from some of my favourite go-to manufacturers: Fancy Pants' cork hearts and sequins, Studio Calico wood veneer hearts, American Crafts and Stampin' Up brads, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, and be still my beating heart, some good ol' fashioned Avery reinforcements. The title was die-cut on my Silhouette using a Silhouette design. I embossed it using my trusty Cuttlebug and one of its staple folders. And of course, I hand-stitched a bit using a The Crafter's Workshop stitching template and some DMS floss. And yes, I stitched straight through my photo - and it's the original! :o Hee!Hee!
And there you have it! If you'd like to design a layout of your own using this sketch, please link it up to today's reveal over at Stuck?! Sketches right here. You'll get the chance to win some awesome scrappy loot from DCWV or Scrapmatts.
