I have got to stop starting new books right before bedtime. I am too old to stay up past midnight and still be able to function correctly in the morning. LOL!
I have a layout to share with you today. These are absolutely some of my favorite photos from the summer of Kat playing in the puddles and the yard at my parents house. The morning sun was just perfect to catch the wispy's of her hair. I just love these photos and have been dying to scrap them, but not really knowing what I wanted to do with them, then I ran across this sketch (#18) at 52 sketches/52 weeks... (click on the photo to get the full effect of the layout.)
I used one of the new collage stamps, Lovely Lilacs, from Unity Stamp Co. on this and I just love the effect that it has on the overall look of the layout. I stamped it in pink (sweet blush from CTMH) and then accented it with my watercolor pencils and just a tiny bit of brown ink around the edges. I paper-pieced the butterfly with a darker pink and curled his wings just a bit to give the tag a bit more of added dimension.
