Love-SOUS

Welcome to the SOUS/Whimsical Designs Blog Hop! You should have started the Hop at SOUS! Sandi designed this really great sketch we got to work with! If you are following the Hop along in order, you probably came here from Janes blog and have already been gathering some fantastic ideas! There are 2 wonderful sponsors for the Hop who are offering a prize! I hope you can go and visit their sites!

Prairie Bird Boutique- Winner will receive their choice of 1 pack of Shabby Crinkle Ribbon
Sonia Kertznus of http://www.shopskdigis.com/ is offering a $6.00 Voucher to the store

Here is the fabulous sketch that Sandi designed!


I rotated the sketch to the right to do my layout because of the orientation of the photo that I wanted to use. It ended up looking like this....

The photo is from Isla's baptism. Laya and Aaron were her godparents. I'm trying really hard this year to use up some of my stash instead of continually buying new stuff. This is a collection from Crate Paper that I had laying around and I just love the colors in it, so that is what I grabbed to create this layout!

Hope you are enjoying the Hop and gathering some inspiration!  Next you're off to Tracey's blog! Enjoy!



Materials- Patterned Paper- Crate Paper Cottage Collection, Stickers- Crate Paper, Doily- Dollar Store, Flowers- Prima and iamroses, Brad- Making Memories, Ink- Ranger Tim Holtz, Rubon- Kaiser Craft

HEY, I know a baby Isla!
How funny! That's my hubby's BF little girls name...I'd never heard of it before! =)
But great page and really like what you did with switching it around...I had done the same
thing trying to show some of the print on the paper (but ended up keeping it). Ok, that's
off track... =)
But really love this! Always excited to see what you make b/c I love your use of color!
