Sketch It to Me BLOG HOP!

This weekend (June 3 & 4) I am participating in the Sketch it to Me Blog Hop with some friends from ClubCK! This is my first time, so bear with me! If you made it here on the hop, you should have just come from Janice's blog and your next stop after mine will be Heather's blog! :)

Our task for this blog hop was to make a layout based off of a sketch made by Amanda. She is also the first stop in our hop! The sketch was fairly simple and it will be fun to see all the different ways each of us have interpreted it!

Here is the original sketch:

And this is how I interpreted the sketch:
As you can see, I stayed pretty close to the original sketch. Instead of doing three 2x2 photos, I changed it to two 4x3 photos. I added the borders on the bottom like in the sketch and added a pearl border also. I changed the place of the title and went without journaling. The flowers I handmade with ribbon and glue dots and added a gemstone to the middle! I added spray mist to the background to give a little more to the white space! It is definitely not my favorite LO, but I do like how it turned out! 

Become a follower of my blog and add a comment and I will put your name in a random drawing for a scrappy prize! Amanda is also going to choose one random blog and a random commenter from that blog for a giveaway! The next stop on the hop is Heather! Happy hopping!

I really like how the mist adds a little bit of something to background paper and where you've placed the gems.
