You Make Me Smile ~ Savannah ~ Christmas, 2006 -- The Pink Elephant Scrappy Challenge No. 10


Please scroll down to see Sketches In Thyme Layout!!!
Hi again, it's me!!!  Boy today is a busy day for me for sure...  But it's also been a fun week preparing for today...  And as you all know, since it is Thursday, it's time for a new challenge over at The Pink Elephant ~ and this week it's a sketch challenge by our very own Lori with a little twist ~ the twist is to use a stamp somewhere on your layout!!!  Boy is she getting good at these sketches or what!!  I tell ya they are so many things you can do to this sketch.  But most of all we want you to have fun with  it, and remember, use a stamp!!!!
And here's my take on it... 
This is a photo of little GD Savannah on Christmas, 2006...  The temperature was in the low 70's and it was absolutely gorgeous!!!!  If you look real close you can see that she has the string of lights in her hand and she's making that sweet little "o" with her mouth... I had to turn away so she couldn't see me smile...  Such a stinker!!!  Note the sub-title "You Make Me Smile."  Which is stamped with a Stampin' Up Stamp and embossed with Zing Black EP.....  I also used a Transparency Screenprint on this and that made it super hard to get a photo of it without getting a glare...  That's why you see the shadows..  It was taken later in the day...  Anyhoo I hope you like it!! 
This layout also qualifies for a few other challenges out there which are:
The Pink Elephant ~ Sketch + stamping on layout
Practical Scrappers ~ Transparencies
Charisma Cardz Challenge ~ Flowers
Crafty Catz ~ Red and Black

Here's my list of scrappy things I used:
