My Favorite photo of ME...

Wow- my 6 months as a member of the Design Team here at Frosted Designs- Sketch Along Tuesdays flew by and I enjoyed working with all the sketches each month. But starting in September I have moved over to the Fabulous Fridays team and will be working with a great talented bunch of ladies for the next term. So I'm pretty excited about that-exploring more with some other projects instead of all layouts. Well, onto my layout here for my last sketch #22 by Karin for Sketch Along Tuesdays I just loved working with this one and I found my favorite photo of myself- which there are not to many of those in my stash of photos- so I saved this one for last and it worked so well with this sketch. I spent a little bit of time picking out papers for this one- I wanted the blue to really stand out in the picture.
                                  here is the take we worked with this week Sketch #22 below

I used most papers from K&Company Specialty papers stack and some cream cardstock and Creative Imaginations all inked with Studio G brown ink. I choose the blue background paper because it resembled the shirt I was wearing in the photo so well and really made the pic pop out against the little pattern papers I used. I added 2 ribbons on the bottom which I hand stitched the mother of pearls shells in blue and green too. Around one of the scalloped edges I pierced holes and then stitched in blue thread and added some clear beads to it for some bling.
I then made my own flourishes with black puffy paint and found some flowers from Prima and misc ones in my stash and added white 1/2 pearls to the center. A few cute little bumble bees from K&Company are buzzing around the page.
Made my own chipboard flag banner added some pape to the fronts and stamped with alpha letters by Studio G for my sub title and again added pearls in between each banner and a blue cord for hanging. I used some chipboard letters ( MY) inked them and tied on some thread and a few more embellies.
     Well, I want to thank you for stopping by and hope to continue seeing you and your projects posted at Frosted Designs in the months to come, and see what you create with this current sketch by the end of the month. They have fabulous sponsors from week to week and love all their challenges for you and I to work on to keep the creative minds going.
