Creative Scrappers Featured Designer

I am so excited to be joining in with the very talented Design Team at Creative Scrappers today, as a Featured Designer for Sketch #210.  Kristine Davidson always has an amazing sketch reveal every Sunday and I love seeing how the Design Team used the sketch.  I was more than thrilled, when I received an email from Kristine, after submitting some of my layouts for her Featured Designer call.  Hopefully, some of the talent from the awesome DT members will rub off on me, this week!!  :)

Here is the sketch that Kristine sent me to work with and the layout I created based on the sketch:


 


This photo was taken after our daughter's dress rehearsal, for her end of the year Ballet Recital.  We have a beautiful area, on the beach, not very far from us.  After the rehearsal was over, we went over with some of her friends and took some great shots of the girls together and separately.  While our daughter was out at the edge of the water, seagulls were flying over-head and I snapped this photo at just the right time.  I immediately knew I wanted to use the song title, "I'm Like a Bird" by Nelly Furtado as the title of this layout.

I used Basic Grey's Plumeria collection and fussy cut some of the beautiful flowers from one of the 12x12 pages and added a little tearing and distressing to the background paper.  I used the flowers in place of the full banner across the page and then added in a little bit of the banner under the photo area.

I really enjoyed working with this sketch and I hope you will come over and visit Creative Scrappers this week.  You will find some great inspiration and have the chance to win at the end of the month, by linking your layout.  Thanks to Kristine, for inviting me to join CS this week!

Products Used:  Patterned Paper & Stickers:  BasicGrey; Thickers:  American Crafts; Mini Market Stickers:  October Afternoon; Mini Round Gems:  Recollections; Embroidery Floss:  Janlynn; Doily: Hobby Lobby; Other:  Bird Die-Cut & Paper Flowers
