Smallest Things ~ My Creative Sketches~ Feb Sketch

Wow! Is it just me, or did January go by fast for you too? And we've just had Valentine's Day! Well, I'm excited to share with you the Feb/13 sketch from My Creative Sketches, and my take on it!  I was rummaging through my small stash of photos and came across this trio of photos of my great niece Cassidy as a baby. I couldn't resist! She is such a doll!

My LSS had a sale a couple of weeks ago and I got these papers from Pink Paislee called Spring Jubilee, and being as hopeful as I am that spring is around the corner.....way up there..... can you see it? lol Well, I can! ;) I thought these papers were perfect for this sweet little girl! I printed them in b/w because the colors clashed, and you just can't go wrong with b/w, can you?

 Here is the gorgeous sketch by Kim Keane.... I love her sketches!

This big pink flower was handmade by me, using the Tattered Floral die from Tim Holtz. The center is a rose from I am Roses that I inked up to match. I used my new sewing machine to do the decorative stitch around the outside-boy did that use a lot of thread! But was so worth it! I love the look.

I took my title from this quote I got from a Kaisercraft rub on. I thought it was so fitting since my photos are about babies. I also did some stenciling using a stencil from Prima and some Molding Paste. I used a bit of Prima's Vintage Pink ink to colorize them a bit.

More Prima goodies and some I am Roses roses!

The white floral die cut you see is from Memory Box and I love how intricate they are!  Got a Prima resin fairy overlooking baby Cassidy, and I used some Dusty Attic small vine to finish it off.
