Sketchy Sketch

 Cocoa Creations challenge #2 is from DeeDee:
"This weeks challenge is brought to you by UmWowStudio and comes in SKETCH form! Do a layout, card, altered canvas or even 3D piece based off the sketch in some way! Link up and share for your chance to win an UmWowStudio prize package. Don't forget to say how the sketch influenced
your project!" My layout is based on the sketch, here it is:
I have been dying to scrap these photos I took of my lilacs this spring and this was a perfect opportunity!!  I used the sketch just the way it was designed except I fliped the photo.

 I used MME On The Bright Side paper, Theresa Collins Now and Then scraps, four different Viva Las Vegastamps, UmWow Studio Chipboard, Tattered Angels and Mister Huey mists, gems, label maker and Tim Holtz alphas, floral beads and glitter…oh and of course Distress Ink.


I am so happy with how this layout allows the beauty of the lilacs to really draw you in!


I am also going to be linking up for the sketch challenge for June over at Um Wow Studio.  Great prize up for should definately check it out!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will play along in this weeks challenge!!
