Since I crop my photos before I have them printed it was a little difficult to find photos I could work with for the sketch. I finally decided upon some photos of my youngest dd and her best friend. The 52 week challenge on the scrapbook goal thread on SCS was to use lots of flowers on your layout. Yep, I've got that covered! The challenge at the Scrap and Stamp blog was "anything goes', it just needs to be a layout and have at least one stamp on it. Yep, got that too!
Stamping is not something I normally do on my layouts just like using my Cricut for cards is not something I normally do. This year I would like to try and break that habit. I stamped the white cs with the border in SU Vintage Vogue set in Pear Pizazz and the floral swirl in each corner in Blushing Bride. I also stamped the F in Pear Pizazz and cut it out. There are three little butterflies in some of the flower centers. I first stamped the floral swirl in Blushing Bride and then punched the butterflies out. I did the same thing with the title before cutting it out with Alphalicious cartridge.
This LO also qualifies for the following challenges:
Stamp Something: anything goes but must be stamped
CES Challenge: #19 no designer papers
Whoopsie Daisy: no designer papers
Stampin B's: use die cuts
