One of a Kind - Scrap Africa Sketch no.25

Morning All

There is a new sketch challenge up at Scrap Africa here. It would be super if you could play along and join us.

I found this super image on the internet, and shared it on Scrap Africa as well.

I love this sentiment and I look forward to this 2014 year! I just know it is going to be a great year! ;-)

Here is the sketch for the challenge.

This is my take on it.

I used Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic papers, die-cuts and journalling cards.  Thrown in were also some BoBunny stamps, Prima stamps and flowers, and Petaloo flowers.

These photo's of Joe were taken when he was about 2.  It was such a cute age and he was so very sweet.  Those big eye's are certainly still the same and he still is a sweet little boy.

My background was made up of strips of papers woven together and then covered with a light layer of gesso and then stamped and splattered. Unfortunately I had to cover a lot of it, but I was very happy with the end result.  I am definitely going to try this again and hopefully keep more of it in sight next time! ;-)

Well I hope you will pop by the Scrap Africa blog and see all the other DT's wonderful pages and perhaps you will also play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate your visits and comments!
Have a super day!
