Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #27

When Beate sent her sketch for this week, I kept looking at it and thinking which stamp sets I could use to fill that focal circle. I came up with some ideas, but nothing I was really crazy about. Then I thought "I should make a scrapbook page!" I never think to use the sketches for scrapbook pages, but I thought this one would work very well. I have always loved this picture of Savannah and Arwen in their polka dot dresses, so I took this as an excuse to scrapbook it and maybe even frame it! If not, at least it will be in a 6x6 album ready to view instead of somewhere on the computer in our countless photo files!




I used the Little Lady set from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from a set that I bought for $2 at my local craft store. These aren't colors I would normally use, but I took them from the girls' dresses. I can't wait to see what Beate, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and Sharon have come up with for this sketch. I'm sure they are all amazing as usual! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Little Lady (Papertrey Ink); Paper- Only Orange, Pixie Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White (SU); Ink- Only Orange, Pixie Pink, Basic Black (SU); Accessories- May Arts ribbon, polka dot organdy from Doodliedoo, horizontal slot punch, key tag punch, circle Coluzzle.

Adorable girls, and great use of the layout! Does Arwen look more like you, or Savannah? I'm voting Arwen, based on this picture. Have a great weekend--your last one as a pregnant woman this year!

This is beautiful! I love the way you carried the polka dots from their suits, to the backround, to the polka dot ribbon. Just great.
