just add ink sketch challenge

this week i have the extraordinary honour of being a guest designer at just add ink
be still my beating heart!!!!

it was a sketch challenge 
so used it for a scrapbook page of my eldest when she was merely 10 days old and newly escaped from the baby icu at wellington women's hospital and home for the first day. 
i had her lieing soaking up some much needed rays in her bassinette in the sun (jaundiced baby) and she gave me this beautiful smile of contentment

 i have used a 12x12 peice of pink pirouette with some stampin up dsp (the green one is crimped).
then i have added some silver hodge podge hardware. 
as a title i have used the letters from a retired su set called headline alphabet,
stamped them in daffodil delight
and then gone over them with some crystal effects
the flowers are a cuttlebug die that i have coloured with ink and a watercolour pen.
i have added some crystal effects to them and a sparkley rhinestone brad

now go forth and create!

cheers ears

Welcome to JAI for the month of May as a Guest DT. I was wondering who that cute bub belonged to!! I love the flowers in the corner and the story behind the 'sunshine'. My eldest had jaundice and this scrap page reminded me about having to give him some doses of sunshine too.

You really captured the sunshine in those fabulous flowers Claire! Great photo of your now big one, you did a wonderful job of scrapping it using the sketch.
