Hi everyone!!  It's Friday and that means another wonderful sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches!!  This one is from our Co-Leader Sandi Clarkson, and you can do, ooooh, so many things with it!!!

Here is the sketch...

Now, if you are familiar with my layouts, you know I don't do CAS layouts very often.... It's not because I don't like them... I really do...  In fact, I love the way your main focus is on the photos on a CAS layout...  I just usually try to add more layers and embellies on my layouts...  But when I saw this sketch from Sandi, I loved the simplicity of it and therefore decided to see if I could  make a layout focusing on the photo only, but still wanted it to be pretty.  I must say it was a little hard for me, and I still think I need to add more...  not for sure what..  But this is what I come up with!!!

Here are a few close ups..

Top...  Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Punched Border and Corners, Bazzill Die Cut Strip, Cabochons, K&Company Brenda Walton Cardstock Bees..

Bottom Right...   Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Punched Border and Corner, QuicKutz Corner Flourish Die Cut,  K&Company Brenda Walton Cardstock Butterflies and Flowers, Stamped Title and then Embossed with Black EP, Martha Stewart Cherish Punched Corner/Border, and Prima Say It In Pearls...

Bottom Left...   Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Punched Border and Corner, QuicKutz Corner Flourish Die Cut, K&Company Brenda Walton Cardstock Butterflies and Flowers, Martha Stewart Cherish Punched Corner/Border, and Prima Say It In Pearls... 

This layout will qualify for a few challenges
CropStop ~ Let's Hear it for the Children
PaperPlay Challenge ~ Use a Die
Lasting Memories ~ Photo Inspiration
Divas By Design ~ To Die For
Papertake Weekly ~ Bingo (I used Punches, Glitter, Blooms)
Paper Playtime ~ Add a Sentiment

Here is the list of scrappy things I used on this layout..

Black Cardstock
KaiserCraft ~ Sweet Nothings Collection
Bazzill Cardstock Die Cut
Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Border/Corner Punches
QuicKutz Flourish Corners Die
Martha Stewart Cherish Border/Corner Punches

Prima Say It In Pearls
Cabochons - Black

Remember earlier I told you that this sketch had so many possibilities?  If you don't believe me you have to head on over to SOUS and see what the ladies come up with using this sweet sketch!!!  They are amazing!!!

Have a wonderful day!!
