{Sketchabilities Saturday}

Today I want to share my very first layout as part of the Sketchabilities design team!
I followed the sketch pretty closely, still using 3 photos and the large strip behind the photos. From there I flipped the sketch, and added the circles to tie in with some recent pics of Gracie playing with bubbles.
Here's my layout:
(papers and stickers: Crate Paper, cardstock Bazzill Basics)
I did a tiny bit of Cross Processing in Photoshop to give the photos a modern-vintage look. Not too different, but I love the subtle results.
And here's the sketch, Sketch # 57:
My inlaw's are here for the weekend, tonight we are going to the Honda Center to see Lord of the Rings in Concert, and tomorrow the Flea Market. I'm looking forward to both ;)
Oh, and remember the chevron layout I posted a few days ago?? It was featured here yesterday. So cool!
Happy Saturday!
