Check out this weeks sketch over at Twisted Sketches! I had a lot of fun with this sketch and using the twist, which is "wish".

I have been wanting to scrap this photo since I got the photos from my sisters wedding. I even found the Bo Bunny paper in my stash and some misc ribbon and had it all ready to scrap. And then mojo ran away and the supplies just sat there. When I got this challenge, I knew, with a little title work, this photo and these papers would be perfect! I wanted to add some texture, so I grabbed some mesh to put behind the photo. The original mesh was cream colored and blended in with the white background paper so I used a green ink pad and colored it to stand out. For the embellishments, I really didn't have anything that stood out, so I made my own. I cut out a few of the flowers from the patterned paper and added green pearls and pop dots. I grabbed some plain chipboard and painted the flower and heart bright colors to pop on the LO.

For the chipboard shape on the bottom, I got a little more involved. I pulled out the Melody Ross Chip Art debossing set that I won at a crop last year (and have never played with) and tried my hand at debossing the chipboard. I used stamps from 3 different sets (flowers, butterflies, and iron works) I then painted the chipboard in the same colors as the flower and heart and added green pearls to finish the chipboard

I had fun creating this LO and hope you will come on over to Twisted Sketches and play along!
