I recently won an awesome kit from Artful Delight. It arrived yesterday and I was lucky enough to have a shortened work day today. I came home with enough energy and ambition to create this layout of my granddaughter Abigail (Abby) meeting her brand new one day old sister Isabelle (Izzy). I love the look on Abby's face in the upper right picture...you can prepare a child for the birth of a sibling but obviously from the look on Abby's face she was surprised by her little sister.
Everything on this page is from the May Artful Delight kit with the exception of the Caribbean blue twine from the Twinery. I used the May sketch as well in hopes of winning the June kit. Here is the sketch that inspired me:
Then for an extra chance at that prize I also tried my hand at using this beautiful card sketch:
Here is my card that I made following the sketch:
The light pink cardstock and the rose is also from the May kit, the embossed background is from one of my friends when we had an embossing swap, more twine from the Twinery and the sentiment is from SRM....love their sentiment stickers. To get more info on entering these sketch challenges go HERE for more details. You have until midnight tomorrow May 23rd to enter.
I am also entering this card in the Lawnscaping embossing challenge.
