Little Shop of Sketches - Sketch 42

Herewith my take on Sketch 42 down at Little Shop of Sketches. This is my last sketch for Tanya Leigh from LSOS. My 6 month term is now finished and I have been given the option to stay on but have resigned, as I have some new ideas up my sleeve and need to be in a position to spread my wings a bit further afield and see what happens (Yes I know that is a bit cryptic but if I have something more concrete to tell you I will!)

I interpreted the sketch pretty literally this time as I liked how it was all coming together. I used Pink Paislee Sweetcakes Collection scalloped paper adhered to a sheet of bright yellow Bazzill then cut the circles from K and Co Amy Butler Lotus Tea Box Grandiflora Flat Paper, using my Creative Memories Circle Cutter set - one of my best scrappy investments ;-D.


I embellished with die-cut butterflies from the same Amy Butler Tea Box Collection for K and Co and also cut floral elements from DCWV Citrus Floral Vine Glitter Paper. For the title I used Doodlebug Adhesive Chipboard - Swimming Pool - Hopscotch Alphabet and for the journalling I used my trusty Dymo...





There is a DT call going on at Little Shop so if you want to familiarise yourself more with working from sketches, as I did when I applied (had never used one in my life LOL!) then pop in there to check out the requirements. I think there are a few positions up for grabs there and you could be filling one of them if you try out! Off to work on my Reminisce classes now...

Gee thanks everyone - this one seems to have been a real hit - glad I have left Little Shop of Sketches with a bang! As for what's up my sleeve - I want to have more time to participate in challenges & all the fun online stuff I come across every week so here's hoping...
