Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop with a sketch challenge!

Hello and Welcome to our Monthly Blog Hop sharing amazing Stampin' Up! scrapbooking!!  

This is actually in an international group of truely inspirational scrappers - you will love their work!  

This month, we have a sketch challenge - and I really DO love a sketch challenge!!  It helps make the page fall together soooooo easily!

Our amazing Courtenay is providing our challenge this month - thank for your this great sketch Courtenay!  I had to change the orientation for the photo mat to accommodate my photos, but other than thank, my layout is exactly the same.  

My project features my current favourites (well, the last few projects have used these products!!)

As these are photos from a wedding, my first choice was to use the Splendid Thoughts bundle, and then because I'm using it so much, I HAD to add the Apple Harvest bundle (exclusive this month only), and because it's great for background stamping, I've also used Quiet Meadow.  

I've stamped using Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Soft Sea Foam (you know I love greens!!)  All the die cutting was from the totally GORGEOUS glimmer paper in the Mini Catalogue - I've used the Evening Evergreen and the Vanilla sheets.  So so so pretty.  I've also used one of the Delicate Edge dies for the bottom of my photo mat die cut using the Vanilla glimmer paper.  

Do you see the gorgeous circle detail behind the photo?  I cut a circle out of the white cardboard in our designer paper packs, and used it as a stencil to sponge some Soft Succulent and create the circle detail.  It's so soft in the background and I love it!

The title element was stamped in Evening Evergreen using Splendid Thoughts and then I punched it out with the Decorative Circle punch, and sponged the edges using a blending brush and Soft Succulent.  The journaling labels come from one of the dies in the Apple Blossoms dies - they look great!  

There's lots of background stamping behind all the die cut elements which give the page lovely depth I think!!  What do you think?  Would you like to create a page using this sketch too?  

UP next is our hop is the amazing Cheryl from the UK!!  Enjoy!!

Here's the list of everyone in the hop in case you get lost along the way!!
