U and You ~SOUS January 6 sketch~

U and You

Hello friends! We're at our first weekend of the new year and I hope you all had a GREAT first week! I'm sure just getting settled back into routines with most of the kiddo's back to school. I'm glad to say that mine are back as well...what a long holiday! Ha! =)

So today is a sketch reveal day at SOUS and we've got one for ya by my friend, Nanne. Love this!

And here is my page! I pulled a few older photos of my daughter and my Daddy! Too cute! The left photo is of Jordyn at 6 months and I swear she looks just like a little dolly, so doesn't look real to me! =) And the fresh out of the bath picture is maybe 2 or 3, not sure. But makes me smile because I have memories of my Daddy combing my hair out of the bath and so that's what I think of...

I've used a collection of paper by Autumn Leaves. And the rest is a major pull from my stash. Here some Echo Park stickers, Smash tag, My Minds Eye label, some embossed kraft card stock.

Here shows some of the pull tags out, and more layered pieces. I've also done inking in Frayed Burlap and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I like the mix of brown and pink.

A close up of that photo....ahhhh!

And the chipboard that I covered with some Echo Park paper...that was some work but worth it in the end. I've sanded and also inked the leaves. Oh, forgot I added a few pieces of stamping from Papertrey Ink and Basic Grey labels as well.

Now embellishments is something that I don't think I have a ton of. And what I have is random to say the this really was interesting to put this together. It always is when I do something this style. =)
I hope you'll go by SOUS, if you haven't already...can't wait to visit the DT blogs as well!

Happy 1st Week of 2012!
