sketch 304 - picture perfect


thank you for dropping by my little corner of creativity!

this week's sketch at scrapbook challenges is sketch 304. see it here:

Here is my take on the sketch. I had to rearrange things around a bit to fit into my embellishments, which is the point of a sketch isn't it?

I used the Bo Bunny Razz Matazz range, which i have kept for about 2 years. I knew the paper would be perfect for my sister, who is currently a professional photographer on a Royal Caribbean Cruise liner. I am so proud of her, but do miss her terribly. But that will all end soon - as SHE IS HOME THIS WEEK! :) 

There is a journalling card with some thoughts for her. i fussy cut out the cameras from the paper to use as embellishments.

I distressed the background pages, and inked everything. The photos were sanded, in order to 'pop' off the page. (love that technique). Doillies are so popular at the moment, and i left this one white, but usually ink or mist them to blend more. 

I had a small camera charm which i've kept for years, and i knew it would be perfect on this layout. The border punch i used on the cardstock on the right was my fiskars punch.

Please pop over to Scrapbook Challenges to view all the wonderful layouts by the other design team members. You can upload your take on the sketch to the gallery.

Remember the weekly sketch is up every Monday, so you have until Sunday night to complete this sketch.

Have scrappy fun!
