Sketch #2 - 52 Sketches . . . 52 Weeks

I'm loving the 52 Sketches . . . 52 Weeks site! This is sketch #2.



Here is my layout for Sketch #2. I love the way it turned out! I used all Basic Grey Stella Ruby. It took me a long time to detail cut that branch with the flowers!! I stamped stitching on the border strip, and I matted it on another sheet of patterned paper that I punched with the threading water punch. I added a simple title, date stamped the page at the bottom, and I was done! This is the photo that we used on our Christmas cards this year. I love the fall leaves in our backyard, and I look forward to taking the girls' portrait in the fall every single year!

Woohoo! The temperature is finally above zero! It's a HUGE difference! School was canceled both Thursday AND Friday, and the girls have a day off on Monday. So, they ended up with a five-day unexpected vacation! Not bad! I hope you're having a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
