You Are Special ~ Scrap Around The World & Sketchabilities

Hi everyone and big welcome to my new follower. After a long break from scrapping, finally my scrappy mojo returns and a layout is doable today.  
 I combined two challenges from Scrap Around The World and Sketchabilities in order to design this layout of my youngest daughter Afza. I have promised to make a layout for her birthday gift (she turns 6 on August 17th). I didn't snap her on her birthday (mom being busy forgetful) but anyway I've been meaning to scrap these photos I took last year and love her sporting character at every photo shoot. Afza loves to pose and model, hence the reason I chose the right top picture from the mood board by Marilyn Rivera. 
 I love Karan Gerber's sketch because I love layering, splatter of ink and paint, tags, stitching as well as Karan's stunning leaves and flowers in  this sketch.
Here are some up-close photos:
Afza was excited when she knew I was going to make her this page so she offered to help out...erm...well...errr...so okay, I let her do what she wanted to do while I watched tv, lol. Honestly, I like to work in peace and stay focus. She punched a few leaves and told me to use them. "Okay!", I said. Half hour later she fell asleep so I carried her to her bedroom and begun my work till mid-night feeling satisfied because I tucked in Afza's leaves underneath the butterfly and flowers before I went to bed.



Supplies: Kaisercraft (Honey Chai collection, die cuts), Carla Craft punch, Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist, Delfino and Tiffany flower embellishment, Tim Holtz distress ink, dry wall tape, watercolor and others from my stash 

Before Afza went to school this morning, she hugged me tight and say, "Thank you Mom for making me the layout". So sweet of her! That is motivation enough for me to keep going and scrap more pages before the month ends as I have promised my eldest daughter I will make ten layouts before August 31. Erm, today feature my first layout of the month, hehe.

Thank you for dropping  by and have a nice day.

Hugs and Smiles,

  7. This is as lovely layout. It is so soft and dreamy and romantic. It shows off the pictures of your daughter beautifully, enhancing rather than detracting from the photo. Jan-NZ
