A Smile that stops time ~ Stuck On U Sketches ~ A Top 3 over at CES Challenge!!


Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!  It's time for another wonderful sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches and it's a beauty!! And we have a special Guest Designer this week, be sure and check that out!!  Most of you will know her from the earlier days here at SOUS... I bet you already know who it is?!!!
Okay here's the beautiful sketch... 

I had a lot of fun using this one..... I decided to pull out the Webster's Pages!!  Here are a few close ups!

Here is a piece of Dusty Attic painted with crackle paint, Prima flowers, vine, and pearls.  You can also see part of the Hambly's Screen Print (hand silk), under the photo.

Here is a hair barrette that I took the clasp off, netting, and chipboard butterfly.  The little green heart was from one of my swirlydoos kits.

Chipboard glitter letters, another hair barrette and some more of that fun netting..

A petaloo flower, prima leaves, prima pearls and a Tim Holtz Ideology clock.  You can also see my journaling tag.

Here are a few challenges this layout qualifies for:
CES Challenge ~ Flowers & Flutterby's
Colour Create Challenge ~ Fruit (I chose ~ Apple/Kiwi, Papaya, Seeds, Pineapple)
Creative Inspirations ~ In The Garden
Cute Card Thursday ~ Signs of Spring
DYSU Challenge ~ Just Green it
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge ~ Spring into action
Flutter By Wednesday ~ Open with angel/butterfly/fairy
Incy Wincy Designs ~ Spring is in the air
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Spring Flowers
ScrapFIT ~ Glitter and Glam
Fun at Fairy Knoll ~ Think Spring
Punky Scraps ~ Recipe - Distressing; Misting; Black & White Photo; Flowers; Something that Sparkles - you are to use 3 of the 5 things listed...  I used B&W Photo, Flower(s) and Something that Sparkles (The word Time)

Here is a list of scrappy things I used..

Webster's Pages ~ Lullaby Lane
Core Color coredinations ~ Green and Orange
Hambly Screen Prints ~ Hand Silk-screened Old Lace

I also want to remind you about out tips/tutorial that we have every other Friday... Last week Nanne shared with us "How to make hand made chipboard letters".  If you missed it please go here...  You may never need to buy any more or those stick on letters again...
Now I know you can't wait to get started on your own layout using this beautiful sketch, but before you do, you've got to check out what the design team created..  So much inspiration...  And remember to upload your project so we can all see it....
Thanks for dropping by and come back anytime!!
Hugs!!!

Well, Fern, you had me at Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane but omigosh, there is ss much more. Love the photo and all your yummy details. And the barrette??? Seriously, I have been shopping in all the wrong places LOL! Wonderful use of DA and Prima. When I chose this sketch, I knew it would be Sandylicious (as in both of us) but I knew it would be Fernylicious as well! Have a great weekend! We are going to go spend time with the babies!

So love this page, the colors as always are what seems to pull me into your projects, followed by the warm photos and all the incredible detail...
