I used KaiserCraft Fly Free collection to create this layout.  The colors are so vibrant and bright, and I used a lot of the die-cuts to create interest on the right side of the layout.  To create the border I cut lots of butterflies from the collections cardstock stickers ... I love the butterfly border ... It is so pretty and perfect for this girly page.

Here are a closer look at some of the details ...

SKETCH 131


I kept this one fairly simple. I used an older collection paper from Authentique called Gathering to created this card.  I love the sentiment that was printed on one of the papers and knew I wanted to use this as my main focus.  The beautiful flowers was fuzzy cut from the collection.  The fab DT have created beautiful cards for this challenge and they are on the blog ready to inspire you!!

Feeling Sketchy is also running a color challenge in honor of  World Card Day.  This challenge runs through October and we would love for you to play along for some great prizes.  You can read all about it HERE!!

Let's Scrap Sketch - 10-1-15
 And here is my take on the sketch ...

Super Cool Dude
So I had these photos of Llewellyn which I simply love!  They are not the best quality as they are a bit blurry, but they evoke such emotion in me that I knew I had to do something with them.  Just looking at them makes me smile!  I used the new Simple Stories collection So Rad for this collection.  It's a beautiful collection to play with!!  Here is some close up's ...


Stickers and stars are all from the collectin.
