So Good To Be Scrapping: Get Picky Sketch Challenge #5

Wow, it feels so good to be scrapping again. The last time I sat down to do a page was back in October 2010, the very first Get Picky sketch challenge. How bad is that. I must admit with such a long break it was really daunting to get back into it, but once I got into the swing of it I thoroughly enjoyed putting this layout together.

My interpretation. I flipped the sketch on it's side and changed a few things around, but the basis of the sketch is there.

The handmade banner my lovely friend Marcia made for me. I just added the flowers to it.

I loved this sketch and it was so much fun playing around with these Echo park 'Summertime' papers. I am such a fan of Echo Park. I also played with Glimmermist for the first time ever and had so much fun. I love the effect it gives and the beautiful shimmer it leaves. I'm sure you will see many more pages with Glimmermist on them.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Wednesday.
Take care,
