Sweet Dream {Sketchbook365}

A new sketch is up at Sketchbook365, and I'm particularly excited about that because it's my first reveal as a member of the Sketchbook365 design team! Here's the sketch, which was based on a layout by Birgit Koopsen:


Here's my page. I flipped the sketch upside down. I used Monica's sweet baby Ezra as the subject of my page. That little baby is ALWAYS smiling!


Here are some details. I used my Silhouette to cut out this lily pad. The papers I used for most of this are American Crafts Dear Lizzy. The background is by My Mind's Eye. That lovely lacy border is a die by Cheery Lynn Designs. And don't you hate it when you see a flaw after your page has gone public--I wish I had moved that lilypad a few centimeters to the right--looks like the border is missing. Sigh.



 Those rub-on flowers are supposed to be white, but they're showing up more of a cream. I added some sparkly brads--the small one is by Doodlebug and the big cabochon sparkly flower is by Pebbles. The smaller cabochon is by Webster's Pages.


Sweet sparkly letters are Thickers. I added some pearls to replace the arrows in the sketch. Here you can see I added some vellum with delicate dots. That pink paper between the floral paper and vellum is really old  Autumn Leaves paper.


I adore Brian Andreas, and I thought this quote was perfect for this page. Monica and James had tried to have a baby many times before James died, and Ezra was their little miracle. She was conceived two months before he died, and it was such a blessing that he found out about the baby and was able to name her (they didn't know at the time that Ezra was going to be a girl).


You must go check out the awesome work by the rest of the team. Really gorgeous reveal!
