Pink Hair- SOUS reveal March 4th

Fridays are certainly a highlight in my week, how about you?..LOL   For this weeks sketch, we were able to work with a beauty made by Suepup.. The sketch is absolutely stunning !!

I've been scrapping a lot of my daughters recent photos, I suppose its a good thing to scrap the recent ones along with the older ones.. I've been stalking my daughters facebook page, grabbing photos as she posts them..LOL   
I have to admit I wasn't too thrilled when she said she had bought herself some pink hair extensions, but once she had them in, they actually look really sweet..
For this project I wanted to work some soft pastels and even though the hair is bright pink, I think it fits the papers perfectly..
Here is my take on this weeks sketch challenge:

and here is the sketch:
I left some of the sketch detail out, but then added some of my own.. Which is really what the sketches are made for.  To inspire you to create your vision of the sketch..

and here are some close ups of the layout:

I had found some small fabric roses at the craft store on clearance and bought them a while ago thinking that I probably would never end up using them, but they really added a nice touch of detail to the trim of the scalloped circle..

Here is a close up of my DD and of the journaling I added, its computer generated!

I cut the font using my cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.. I then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint distress ink and finally adding clear accents to it.

My cluster of flowers and leaves.. I found the love" tag2 in the paper collection and thought it was a nice touch !!

well ladies.. Thats another Friday reveal for me !!  I hope you have some time this weekend to stop by SOUS and try this sketch out and show us your work... We'd love to see it!!
Thank you all so very much for stopping and taking a look..
Hope everyone has a great and creative weekend..
