Lucky 13 - My Scraps & More Sketch #103 Reveal

Hi sketchy, scrappy folks out there in papercrafting land!  Happy Friday!

I'm having a blast participating with the My Scraps & More sketch team, and today's reveal has a great sketch created by Audrey Yeager.  See my layout below, and then head over to the MSAM sketch blog to see how everyone else interpreted the sketch.  I used Pinkfresh Studio's Up In The Clouds collection.  

My daughter recently turned thirteen (eek!), and we celebrated with a dinner out at the restaurant of her choice.  

My layout base was a Bazzill textured cardstock I had in my stash and matched the Pinkfresh very nicely.  And I wanted the photo to rest on the neutral paper with the doodled hearts and stars, so I actually worked with that next.

After I had that part together, I inked the paper edges with a blue-green ink and layered the pink "Love" paper and the blue stitched papers behind it angled similarly to the sketch.  Once I had the layers the way I wanted them, I cut the title numbers from the center of the blue stitched paper since I knew that would be hidden by the layers on top.  This is a great way to save paper!

I finished the title with ink and stitching and then used Heidi Swapp alphas to spell "Lucky" over it.

For the top strip, I angled the doodle paper, inked the edge and stitched across it.  Then I included some of the Pinkfresh hearts, some gems, and a wooden star.  You can also see I outlined and filled in several of the hearts with a Gelly Roll glitter pen.  I stitched around several parts of my layered papers.

Next, I created an embellishment cluster using a Heidi Swapp "shine", another Pinkfresh heart, and a wooden arrow.

I completed the layout with journaling.  You can see more hearts and stars filled in with a Gelly Roll glitter pen.

I hope you join us with this sketch!  Post your interpretation of the sketch during April for a chance at a great prize from My Scraps & More.

Have a fabulous weekend!
