MME Sketch Challenge

I took a little break from my August Scrap That! DT work to sneak in a layout for the MME "hope" sketch challenge #13.

This is my daughter at 9 months old... the photographer had this huge paper mache easter egg, too cute. I used a few different MME "bella bella" collection papers. A lot were my scraps from a project I am making for the local store I design for. Left over Prima bling from the other project too!

Design tip: Use the Martha Stewart lace punch and cut up the strip and glue sections behind a circle to create a scallop lace border.

OK, so if you're wondering where I got the pink shabby flowers, blue roses and the doily from? Well... they are unique products I will be selling in my very soon to open Etsy shop(at very reasonable prices). These are not your run of the mill dollar store flowers and doilies either... they are archival safe paper-crafting ones. All of my products will be acid free and alterable.

Some of these items will also be featured in an upcoming Scrap That! kit so stay tuned! There is so much more product to be revealed soon.

Love what you did for this challenge! I entered it too! I've never worked from a sketch before, so it was fun! I used the Bohemian and Tres Jolie lines. I have the Bella Bella papers you used. Now, I want to pull them out and play! Love your work!
