Sketching with Shanna Noel and Freckled Fawn Giveaway

Hi all!

I am sketching along with Shanna Noel again this month and this month proved to be another inspirational month! I absolutely loved the sketch and the other talented contributors interpretation of it. (That's always my favorite thing, seeing other artist's take on the same sketch). :)

Here is Shanna's sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch using at Studio Calico's Front Row Scrapbook kit:

*Click on any pic to view larger.
I pretty much stayed true to this sketch with my layout.  Sometimes I veer wayyyyy off from it and that can lead to fun developments too. ;)
I really loved how the pp complemented the colors in the pic and the sentiment I was feeling for my boys and the beautiful day we had experienced on the beach, playing in the sand.

So, SO much fun playing along again this month. I love using sketches as a jumping off point for my creativity. Thank you Shanna for inviting me!

Be sure to stop on by Shanna's blog as she is giving away a $10 gift certificate to Freckled Fawn for those who play along with the sketch and post on her blog.
