Ooops! A little late! (Sketches in Thyme)

Hello Blog Land!! I thought I had some time for this post, but it turns out it went up a few days ago on the Sketches In Thyme blog! Ooops! Anyway, It's time for their open challenge which means you can do a layout based on any sketch and link it up to win a $20 gift certificate to
The Paper Trail. You have till the end of the month, so hurry up and get those sketches and create something!!

I used this sketch from Page Maps.

and here's what I did with it...This page was made for a friend of mine's baby shower. 2 of my really good friends just recently had babies, and for their presents I made them each a layout that I framed.

Here is Sue's baby Alexander James:

And here are some close ups:

I used the resist paper from (I think) House of Three...and cut out the flourishes and added it as a frame to the photo.

I also made a layout for my best friend Erin.

I love this layout. I think it's my favourite so far...notice the background paper? recognize the stamp of the month from Creative Accents? I stamped the whole background paper with the Hero Arts background stamp, and embossed it with clear embossing powder to make my own resist paper. Then I inked the paper with Tim Holtz Wethered Wood, and Broken China Distress Inks. I love the way it turned out!

This layout was really special to me because Erin's family is like a second family to us, so I was really glad to make this for her. I must say I had a little tear in my eye as I finished it last night...

Well, I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!!

Ps: these layouts were made using my Counterfeit Kit

Don't forget you still have time to play with us at Creative Accents Challenges!

Hope you're having a great weekend!!
