Sweet as can be

MCS is having a BIG Sketch contest! Like whoa really big!!!! It's a 3 month contest with lots of great prizes. I created this layout for my October entry.  I love to use sketches as a jumping off point and I always make them my own; never following them exactly. I dunno if that's a good thing or a bad thing. :)

This is a photo of my dd and I (who is now a teen :( back when she was about 3. She was as "as sweet as can be" Such an easy child and always so good. It's funny how when they grow up you forget what they looked like when they were little. She is a really good girl still even through the teen hormonal flare ups!
This is a cumulation of Swirlydoo supplies bascially! I inked a resist that was in our current kit with pink and green cats eye ink pads. I did some fussy cutting of the plane and flower/leave tucked behind the plane. The beautiful rose vine is Prima and I love the natural color of the vines on this one. I cut it and arranged on the top of my page balancing it with flowers on each side instead of using it as a long vine. I also added some Websters blooms. I have had a collection of these for awhile and I have not had the right layout to use them in ribbon form like this! I am so happy it finally worked!
I love K & company papers and like to have some of their pads in my pantry as a staple. I like to use them when I want some pattern and either don't have anymore kit papers to coordinate or want a different look. So I have some of those tucked in. I coated the chipboard artisan shape with diamond dust for sparkle. The background paper is Websters vellum over a pink cardstock.
Thank you so much for taking a peek!
