Friday reveal at Stuck on U Sketches!

Welcome to reveal day! I am so excited to show you what I did with this weeks sketch! I used Webster's Pages'  'Trendsetter' Collection.  I love the bright  fun colors in this collection. I took this cute photo of my GN, Madden, on the day we were having a wedding shower for my daughter.

                                                                          When you where a child did you ever pull the petals off a flower and recite  the saying " He loves, He loves me not...."?  I know I sure did! When I saw this photo I knew exactly what I was going to do! I got out my Dusty Attic stash and took out the long stemmed flower I recently got, and the circle ring as well.

                                                                               This weeks sketch is brought to us by our own Sandi Clarkson!  This was a really nice sketch to work with, and I had a lot of fun doing so!  I flipped the sketch to suit my photo better.

 I did some recycling on this layout.  The ribbon came from my corsage I wore at dd wedding, the daisy flowers[Prima] were on the wedding cake, and the light pink flowers I made for the sharing tree for dd wedding as well!  Feels good to be able to re use these items!

                                                                                   I created the leaves with my leaves stamp from Heartfelt creations.  First I stamped the image with Distress ink, and then I filled it in with a watered down Distress stain, layering to build up color.
                                                                                           I inked the DA circle with Distress Stain, and then covered it with Stickles.  I used Distress Crackle Paint to "white out" some of the background paper so the title would show up better.

                                                                                      I scattered petals off of one of the Prima flowers and scattered it around the layout as if they had been pulled off intentionally.

                                                                                     I used pink Smooch ink on the Dusty Attic long stem flower, and on the stem I used Distress stain and Distress Embossing powder.  To create the ruffle around the Dusty Attic circle I cut strips of pattern paper and punch along the edge with a Martha Stewart border punch.  I think gathered it and glued it behind the circle.

                                              Thanks so much for checking out my blog and layout!  Make sure you check out the other designers work at SOUS and leave some love!  Also, just a reminder about the amazing September Blog give-away!  Each time you complete one of the 5 challenges with a NEW layout you will get your name in the draw!
