First Saturday Sketch Challenge

Over on the Paper Maze blog - Scrap, Paper, Scissors they started a weekly challenge and the first was introduced by Wendy on 1st May. Wendy said "Every Saturday (more or less bar family emergencies or holidays) we are going to be having a sketch up here on the Paper Maze blog. This is either going to be a page sketch, 12 by 12, double page or a card sketch..if you would like to see 8 1/2 by 11 ones let me know and i will add them in.  There is going to be a slide show down the right hand side of the blog with the sketches and their examples. If you wish to play along then add a link in the comments section and i can show them on here and add them to the slide show."

As it is our anniversary I decided to scrap a photograph from our wedding, 26 years ago today!

I used papers from Basic Grey's 'Infuse' collection, I have to admit this is not one of my favourites but the colours were just right for the photograph.  I cut three 2.5" squares and decorated them with three blossoms and a crystal brad, all from my stash. The cardstock is Core'dinations. I cut the border using the Storybook Cricut Cartridge. The title is created with American Craft Thickers Letter stickers, they were white and I inked them with first with beige then with gold. I added self adhesive pearls and used lots of gold stickles to add a bit of glitter.

  1. I like the way you have personalised the sketch with your large photo, I tend to stick to the sketch almost to the letter!
