Scrapbook Kits with a Difference -January Sketch {"Beautiful" Layout}

There's a very interesting new sketch up on the 
Scrapbook Kits with a Difference blog.  Play along with
it this month & you'll have a chance to win a Scrapbook 
Kit if your project is chosen as the winner!
There is also a very Summery Inspiration Challenge
going on too so take your pick, play along & link up!!

I didn't translate this sketch too literally but ran with 
the idea of the background strips of different lengths 
by positioning a central panel of Webster's Pages 
Vintage Netting - adhered using Pink Paislee Washi tape -
then added another couple of strips of tape on either side,
tearing it instead of cutting it straight, for a more artsy look. 

Lastly I misted some braid (which was very wide so
I first cut it in half), before stapling it on, then I
amalgamated the 3 photos into 2, repositioned the title
vertically then embellished & journaled inversely but the
sketch is still there!  Yes?!

I ♥ those Flocked Chipboard words from
We R Memory Keepers!

The paper is also WRMK and comes with the
gorgeous punched edge!!

I ♥ the tulle from Webster's!  For as long as they
keep producing I'll keep putting it in my cart...

I need more washi tape!  I ♥ the stuff...

Those gorgeous white paper flowers are from Martha Stewart
Crafts & soooo pretty...

I had fun with this one & it fell together in a flash!
