Awesome - Scrap Africa Challenge Sketch no.13

Hello Everyone

Wishing you a very Happy New Year and hoping that 2013 is going to be a stunning year for you and your families! I hope that you are healthy, wealthy and abundantly happy!

There is a new sketch reveal at Scrap Africa and it would be awesome if you could play along. You have until 14 January 2013.

Firstly here is the sketch.

and is the Awesome layout that I created! ;-))))

I just love this collection from Simple Stories - Summer Fresh - and so really wanted to use these papers, which I thought would really go so well with this photo.

I just love this photo of my son and being a New Year and all, it reminds me that time is fleeting and I actually cannot believe that he is growing up so fast!! So the fact that I can scrap these little moments and document his awesome!! ;-)))

I did some masking with an Enmarc chicken wire stencil and then added the little Summer Fresh accents. As the paper itself is a little busy, I wanted to keep the lines quite clean and simple.

Some close-ups for good measure...

Well I hope that 2013 brings lots of inspiration and creative juices your way.....
Have an awesome 1st day of 2013!
