Adventure Seeker-Sketch reveal S.O.U.S

How many days till Christmas?..LOL  I'm trying not to count...  
But since were all so patiently waiting, why not check out our Sketch reveal over at S.O.U.S..  This week our very own Sandi Clarkson created out sketch and I absolutely loved it..  I wanted to think outside of the box and I didn't want to create a Christmas layout just yet.. Maybe for our next sketch...

so, any who here is my take on this week sketch:

This layout was really difficult to photograph.. The papers are all from the Nursery Tail's Imagine cartridge and they printed a lot lighter than what was visible on CCR.. I have lots of close ups for ya, so you can get a better view of it..  oh and I really liked the way this came out.. I'm so loving that Wild Card 2 cart which is where the hot air balloon is from...

How's about some close ups:

All of the clouds and the sun are from Create-A-Critter cartridge..
I pop dotted the small clouds to give some dimension to my layout..

I found this cute photo of my three kids when we first moved to Finland.. Actually this is about a year or two after we moved here.. I had a crafting corner set up for them in our livingroom :)

I added lots of little liquid pearl drops to the hot air balloon..Inked all of the die cute edges and I think it came out super cute!!

The title phrase is from Three Birds on Parade cartridge..I also found the scalloped oval of A Child's Year cartridge..  The prints on the oval are super cute, light green with white stars.. Hard to tell though..
