Me & You

Hello and happy Saturday to you!

Today I have my layout for Sketchabilities from sketch #88.  Its a fun one with so many possibilities!

Here is my take on it...

This is me and my better half, the love of my life!  For this layout I used Snowfall by BoBunny.  For my photos, I first cropped them and then transformed them into sepia tone to fit my layout properly .  If, by chance, you are looking for a photo program, try Picasa.  Its fabulous and its free!

Before adding my pictures I placed a felt gate, made by Prima, to the background paper.  For my cluster, I used two Prima bouquet flower sets in different colors and then layered them with butterflys of contrasting colors, adding pearls as their bodies.

My title was cut from my Silhouette Cameo.  Behind my title you will notice the brown inked dots, I used my roller stamp to make them.  I just rolled the stamp with brown ink and rolled away, directly onto my paper.  They look identical to the brown & blue dots along the border, dont they?  But they are not!  I then added brown pearls along one of the dot trail.

I did the same inked effect with my roller stamp behind the journal tag and then added a butterfly, a pearl for its body and also as a flying trail following along some of the inked dots.

Well, I hope I have inspired you in some way.  If you can, make your way over to Sketchabilities and join in.  As I said before, there are so many possibilities with this sketch and I'd love to see what you come up with!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your Easter Sunday.
