Twisted Sketch #090

I absolutely LOVED this sketch!! I have absolutely no reason why, but it just leapt off the page at me and admittedly I did this layout before sketch #88!! Have a look at it here.....

First thing I did was turn the sketch around and started from there. I finally used my favourite sheet from BoBunny's Midnight Frost Collection.....have you seen it??? Absolutely Gorgeous!! I shaded the edges of cardstock and patterned paper with some shimmery pastels. I raised the photos with foam pads from the masks I made for them underneath.

The 'twist' on the sketch was 'Frames' so I incorporated this onto my layout with some good old fashioned sewing....and yes it's meant to look a little messy!
 I used my trusty Robo to cut out some snowflakes which I then covered in distress stickles. I had some lovely blue pearl flourishes which I cut up and positioned to finish my layout. I was really pleased with the finished layout as I finally got to use these photos of Samurai 'trying' to catch his snowballs.


  1. I loved it when I saw it on their site, and seeing it in close up now I love it more. You can tell how much you enjoyed it.

  2. Such a gorgeous layout! I love the shading you did on the paper, it looks amazing! Great job on this week's sketch!

  3. Hi Monica, thought I'd have a peek at your blog and now I'm a follower. I love your 'crafty' style and that is one cute hound you have.
