My Creative Sketches Layout Challenge-Heaven Sent

I've been having a hard time with scrapping these past few weeks. I decided to finally give up smoking (25 years) and have started medication to help curb the urges. Well I've been so nauseous I'd swear I was pregnant again ( absolutely zero chance of that!). It's been difficult to focus when your head and stomach are rolling with the waves but I really wanted to meet the deadline for the MCS Sketch Challenge. This was the sketch designed by Kim Keane.
This is my interpretation.
I flipped the sketch to accomdate the vertical picture. This is my grandaughter Emily as a flower girl on her uncle's wedding. I just fell in love with the picture when I saw it!
Some DA ( Scroll #8) in the corner with both a handmade and  Prima flower.

For the DA piece (Orante Gate) I painted it first with white craft paint and after it dried went over it again with my pealy coloured nailpolish to give it that shimmer associated with the pearly gates of heaven. Unfortunately no matter how I shoot this I can't catch the shine on camera :(  Well that's it for me today I'm off to start another layout stomach permitting! Have a great day and thanks for coming by!! :)

MCS July Challenge-Lil Miss

The challenge at My Creative Scrapbook this month was to scraplift a design team members layout. I chose to scraplift Zoe's.

My grandaughter Lilly has become quite good at posing for Grandma's endless photo sessions. This was taken in my backyard while all the girls were up for a week long visit.

 Just some flowers I made to match the paper Bo Bunny's Little Miss line. I love this paper!
The noteworthy cardstock pieces work really well in adding dimension to a page.
