SOUS/Whimiscal Designs blog hop

Hello again

Here I am again.  This time with a Blog Hop.  Stuck on u Sketches and 
Whimsical Designs are joining together this weekend for a great Blog Hop.  It's like 
double the fun.  If you were sent here from Esther then you are right on track.  The blog 
hop begins with Stuck on u sketches.  We have two sponsors for this hop:

1. Patsy-Prairie Bird Boutique:
Winner will recieve their choice of 1 pack of Shabby Crinkle Ribbon

2. Sonia Kertznus:
Winner will reieve a $6.00 Voucher to Sonias store

Here is the sketch we were all given to work with.  Created by Sandi.
Designer for SOUS

And this is my layout that I created using the sketch above.

I love this picture of my youngest daughter and I.  And I was very excited to be able to
finally do something special with it.  I wanted to express and show the beauty of our 
relationship in this lay out.  I hope it shows.  I tell you it's much prettier in person. :-) 

My sweet daughter knows nothing about scrapbooking, yet she was at Michael's 
one day and thought of me.  She gave me a small RAK.  I though it was very sweet,
and thoughtful.  So I added some of it into this project.  The clock and
adorable charm on the right both from Recollection were part of her gift.  I used 
the 12 x 12 paper Pink Paislee, the "Butterfly Garden."  The lazer veneer cuts on the
upper right were purchased a while back from Diane.  I can't remember where the
humming bird came from but I did emboss it with Lindy's embossing powder
call "Spanish Moss Green." The cherub angels are from Melissa Frances.
Butterfly from "Flora Doodles."
  All the flowers are from I Am Roses.  Except the big one on the left, which I cut from 
a trim.  It was ivory and I sprayed it with Lindy's "cape cod coral."  The small cameo 
on the lower left is from "The girls paperie."  My title at the bottom from Studio112
was give to me by my sweet friend Nica.  Both trims were from my stash.
And of course,
I finished it up with some bling.  Oh and I almost forgot I used modeling paste.
I used the "mariposas" and the "mini chicken wire" stencils.  I also added a little
to the tips of the flowers.

So now please hop on over to my sweet friend Friday.  She is amazing, so
I'm sure you're going to love what she's created.

Have a great day.  Can't wait to see what you think.
