November Sketch Challenge at Blue Fern Studios

   This is my layout for the November sketch challenge at BFS. I decided to make a Christmas layout because the sketch and the piece of chipboard featured in the sketch (the branch) were just perfect for the page that I had in mind for a while. I didn't follow the sketch exactly as it is. I had to make some changes.

   Here's the sketch:

Magical Moments

  I used papers from several Webster's Pages Christmas collections, some Prima flowers, WP perfect accents, a Prima shabby chic resin, other scrapbooking products and of course the Blue Fern Studios piece of chipboard - 'Twiggy Branch':

   I put some texture paste and white acrylic paint on the chipboard to make it look like there's snow on the branch. Then I added stickles to make it sparkle and glued the little white pieces that look like flower buds (I don't know what they are called). I used the white paint on the flowers and the fussycut elements, too. The red flower is handmade.
   The photo is of my son when he was one and a half years old. I like it a lot because he looks so sweet and as if he's holding a little bird in his hands.
