Hey, hey hey..Its once again Fri-fri-day...LOL :O)
We at SOUS had an amazing sketch by Liz Qualman again this week..This lady has some serious talent when it comes to making sketches..
I very rarely have two or more photos of an event or person, so I had to make this layout with only one photo.. its another one that I found on my hard drive, my dd must of left it for me..
Here is a photo of the sketch:
I did change a few things around, like the title I put on the top and then added the ribbon on the bottom instead of paper.. I absolutely love using these sketches cause you can so make them your own with a few alterations..
and with that said, here are a few close ups:

I am so addicted all Prima's, this sunflower vine and swirls of pearls being no exception..  :O)
now, for the details:

Cricut carts:
Home Decor: small yellow flowers
A Childs Year: leaves
Graphically Speaking: Flowers and centers
SCAL for the title

Cuttlebug and Distressed Stripes folder
Tim Holtz distress inks: black, walnut stain and burn marigold

green flowers, sunflower vine and swirls of pearls

cream, yellow, brown, green and dark brown.

Pearl drops for flower centers
zig black fine tip marker for hand journaling
pop dots
cinnamon stickles
yellow ribbon by Basic Grey
Edge distress tool

I think that about does it for today.. Hope you get a minute to stop by SOUS and see what the other designers have created using this same sketch..
