So Sketchy Reveal(s)...YMBD April 1st Reveals!!!

Where do I start?
How about the last 2 sketchs of the awesome set we had to work with in March from So Sketchy...okay, that sounds like a great idea!!!!! :)

Here's the 2nd one that I worked on in March...I went WAY back in my stash for this one and pulled out some fun KI pp!!! A treasure found as it worked perfectly with the photo I took of a rose from the bouquet my hubby got me for my 40th birthday!!!! Since it was my birthday, the Printable Stamps from The Cutting Cafe that was our sponsor this month came in very handy!!! I used a small one and a large one that I punched out after printing with my big 3" scallop the look!!! Thanks for the opportunity to work with your wonderful printables...I enjoyed it throughly!!!

Supplies Used:
KI pp
Bazzill Just the Edge CS Strips
AC Thickers
Adirondack Dimensional Pearls paint
YMBD Butterfly CS Embellishments

Next was a circle layout but I had fun changing it up a bit and using a die cut sheet of pp to show off my gorgeous pup!!! :)

Supplies Used:
Pebbles pp
Pebbles chipboard
Your Life Labels
Maya Road Sheer Journal Shapes/Chipboard shapes
Prima Bling Swirls

Riff Raff Chipboard Vine
