January Sketch Challenge at The Sampler!

Today is the day I can finally show you the very first layout I created with the January "A Bright New Year" kit from The Sampler!!

Here's the January sketch:

And here's my take on it; a layout about my dd with two of her friends, all dressed in the same attire! Don't you just love that Bazzill Blackbird Glazed Stripe paper??? I used my edge distresser and added some red machine stitching to give it a final touch.

The flowers in the lefthand bottom corner I handcut from the sheet "Scarlett, Polka" from Glitz Design. The only thing that wasn't in the kit is the bookpage I tore from one of my own books.

The bird I cut from the American Crafts laser cut sheet and then I added the Pink Paislee press-on on top of it.

The "3" comes from the Jillibean Soup sheet and to make it stand out I used my new 1 inch Epiphany Craft tool to create an epoxy shape.
