Beach Babe ~ Sketches In Thyme

Hello everyone!!  Today we have an easy challenge over at Sketches In Thyme...  It's  open sketch week... and that means you can use any sketch you want to, just be sure you upload the sketch along with your layout!!!  This was a perfect opportunity for me to use another one of my sketches!!  I'm having a lot of fun designing these and if you like them feel free to use them, you can check 'em out under "my sketches" in the tool bar under my header...  Okay, nuff about that..  Here's the sketch I designed...

I decided to use some photos of little GD Savannah taken back on July 8, 2008, right before she turned 3 years old.  She has always loved cowboy hats, and I thought these were just precious...  

 Here are a few close ups... 

Here you can see the prima flowers and leaves layered over the Sizzix Tim Holtz Die.. And you can see a little of the distressed edges...


Another Prima Flower and leaves, sticker litters, Ribbon, a Basic Grey Stitched Brad, Cuttlebug Floral Borders, Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants (under small photos), and finally more distressing!!!

Here is my cute umbrella I cut from Life is a Beach Cricut Cartridge, added lace and more Cuttlebug Floral Borders, Sun Glasses sticker, SU spiral paper punch, Metal butterfly (jewelry from Hobby Lobby), and more distressing..
