There's about 100 times when I could have started my text for this post but I don't know what always pulled me away and good thing I came back because this goes up in just hours and I had nothing written! Yikes! And I only share that little bit because I know I'm not the only one that does that (more often then not, yes?)
Well today I am super excited that a dear friend of ours at Stuck on U Sketches, Debbie Burns has designed a sketch for our use this week. You can find that sketch at SOUS. Here is what I made following that...
This fun photo is of the hubby and I as newlyweds, about 6 months married on our honeymoon. Here we are in a very exotic nature park on the Big Island in Hawaii. It was an amazing trip and this the only time I got mosquito bites (and how can I blame them? that was one pretty skinny shirt! LOL!)
The very awesome title was cut from a new cart for me, Pack Your Bags. Love that! I did some stamping on that title, which is quickly becoming a thing for me! All the wonderful blooms were cuts from Mothers Day Bouquet. The leaves from Lifes a Beach. The flower centers are a mix of brads, pearls and Flower Soft.
There was so much inking on this page that I looked a mess afterwards! A Mom at school had asked me if I was using iodine. I wasn't prepared for that and had to ask her what that was...I knew but wasn't ready for that! LOL! I said no...just making tropical flowers! LOL! The super cool lobster paper is by Webster Pages and the text an older Summer stack by DCWV.
I love taking inspiration from the sketches and thinking outside the box...so instead of using the circle from the sketch as a circle cut piece of paper or whatever, I used that as how to place my cluster of flowers! Fun, huh?
Hope you like and can't wait for you to play....I'll be visiting you just as soon as you link up! Can't wait! Hugs ~Leah
