Stuck?! Sketches: September 1, 2016 Sketch and Reveal

Hello, again! Today, I get to share what I designed for Stuck?! Sketches' September 2016 sketch by the ever-so-amazing Laura Whitaker. Wanna see the sketch? Here it is:

And here's what I designed:

I just love this photo I took of my two kids a few years back. Éloïse had just sat by herself for the first time and Louis-Olivier was so excited to have seen her do it! Cuteness, right there! That's one of the reasons why I love scrapbooking so much - it gives me the chance to record the stories behind the photos.

For this sketch, the Stuck?! Sketches design team was given some awesome flair pieces from Accent Scrapbooking to be incorporated onto our pages. See where I put one of those I received? Yup! That's right! Between the reddish camera and the title. It was a perfect match for the Basic Grey Kelly Purkey's Mon ami collection I used for this layout. Set on what I believe is an old piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper, I layered BG Mon ami patterned papers (both 12X12 and 6X6) as well as a piece of Imaginisce patterned paper. I also added some texture to the layering by stuffing in some bits of Bella Blvd transparencies and Magenta mesh in there. I grounded the layering by stitching a few circles using a Bazzill Basics stitching template with some DMC floss and then sprinkling some Studio Calico wood veneer stars with a few Creative Embellishments chipboard die-cut triangles. The title is a Heidi Swapp wood veneer piece that I jazzed up a bit using a Wink of Stella marker. Besides the Accent Scrapbooking flair, I also added a few Basic Grey Mon Ami alphas and stickers. Can't forget those Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze paint splatters. I just love the look they create to an almost finished page.

Now, Stuck?! Sketches is celebrating the whole month of September (stay tuned for more details!) and is fortunate to be able to offer extra prizes for both of its challenges this month! For the September 1st sketch, here's what's up for grabs:
