Stuck?! Sketches - Mid Month Sketch Challenge

It's mid April and that means time for the mid month challenge at Stuck?! Sketches!! I used Pebbles' Everyday collection and a photo of my three kids, taken on the Steamboat Natchez in New Orleans last May: 

This is the sketch Laura designed for us: 

As you can see I stayed close to the sketch when I created my page as I really liked the design of this one. 

What I love about this sketch that I could use so many different patterned papers from the Pebbles 12x12 paper pad I bought. I love all of the papers in this collection and had a hard time choosing although any combination would have been fine. 

I also really love the die-cuts and tags that belong to this collection like the gold branch with little leaves and the gold butterflies. 

I've also used a few bits and pieces that were lying on my desk and didn't belong to this collection, like the, huge brad and the chipboard pieces..... 

The watercolor die-cut I used for my title is from Dear Lizzy's Happy Place: 

Once I had adhered everything I added some machine stitching and a few drops of Prima's gold Color Bloom and some enamel dots and I was done!

If you like the sketch too, then maybe you could join us at Stuck?! Sketches and give it a try too. We're having two fun sponsors offering prizes to two lucky scrappers!
