Shhh...! Its Friday Reveal Time!

Hello all you lovely followers!  Today I want to introduce  my great niece, Lucia Tate, all on her own!  Last time you met her with her big sister Cassidy. I'm sure the two of them will be best of friends when Lucia gets a little older.  The sketch this week at Stuck on U Sketches is brought to us by the lovely Liz Qualman!  I always enjoy working with her sketches.  I decided to use the Graphic 45 kit I got from ScrapThat!, I believe it was their March kit.  I just love this kit, and the papers are soo gorgeous!  

I did some machine stitching, and used my Zutter Distrezz It All. I love the white paper doily I used to represent the circle!  I've been having great success in buying them at my local thrift store! If you don't already, you should check out yours and see what goodies you can find!

Here is the sketch by Liz.

Look at these flowers I made using my Cricut!  I bought the Motherday Bouquet cartridge to make some flowers for my daughters wedding, and I just love that cart!  There are so many different flowers you can make with it! I made 2 of these flowers with that cart, and the larger on with Plantin  School book.

The letters I used came with the kit and I believe are Thickers.

I will be making a tutorial on this flower and be presenting it on July 1 at Stuck on U Sketches, as well as here on my blog.

I purchased some new stamps by Pink Paislee from their Butterfly Garden Collection.  I used a few of the stamps on my layout.  You can see here I used "le jardin".

I did some paper tearing and stamped some flora stamp inside and a dragon fly using Ranger Archival Ink in Coffee.

You can see on the corners of the photo, I used my corner loopy punch by Martha Stewart, used some Webster bloomers that came with the kit, as well as some pink half pearls along the top of the picture matting.

I did a bunch of fussy cutting of the flowered pattern paper, and made a double banner with the garden fairies. I raised them up with pop dots.

Here are some close ups of the banners.  I used some bakers twine as the string.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you can join along and try this sweet sketch!  We'd love to see your take on it, and there is candy to be had!!
