The Sketchy Challenges DT - Sandra's Sketch

 Woohoo!!  It is time for another challenge at The Sketchy Challenges and this fortnight we have a gorgeous sketch by Sandra for you to play with!  I decided to create another layout - I'm loving using all my "only for special projects" stash!  I took the gorgeous green and the pretty floral dress from this photo of my little girl when she was learning to walk as the inspiration for this layout.  The papers are a mix from my stash without names, but I can tell you that the floral paper is from K&Co's Madeline paper pad.
 I added lots of gorgeous flowers from my stash - most of them are by Prima and I think the leaves are by Petaloo.  I cut a large circle from white cardstock and punched around the edge with a Martha Stewart punch to create the edging.
 The butterflies were cut from more of the K&Co papers and I have added pearls to their bodies.  I have sewn around the main page twice - once straight and a second time in a wavy pattern.  I've used the same punch that I used on the circle for the edges of the pink paper.
 The letters are by Webster's Pages.
 I added part of a Prima swirl and a K&Co button to the folded over corner of paper.
 More gorgeous flowers - the large flower is by Prima, the rose from Wild Orchid Crafts and the beaded flower is from The Hobby House.
 Here's a closer view of my little cutie pie taking those first steps!
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at The Sketch Challenges!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations!  Thanks for looking! x

Ahh cute layout Jane. I really must start up my scrapbooking again. It's nice to have "special stash" which doesn't have to be given on a card to another.

Love Kerry xxx
