Sketchy Thursdays and a lift!

Good Thursday morning!!!! Things are going great in this household since the baby finally started sleeping through the night about a week ago!!

I really really love the colors on my page for this weeks Sketchy Thursdays reveal! Here is the great sketch:

And here is my page.  I am still working with some photos from last fall!
I don't know what came over me when I started thinking about putting a pink strip on this page with the yellow background, but I actually really like how it came out!  I think it picks up on some of the color in Charlottes jacket.

I cut the orange frame with my Cricut from an svg file and outlined it with black and white pens.

Of course I fussy cut out a lot of the flowers to add to the page. I machined stitched a frame around the photos, too, to group them together a bit more.

In a related note, we do a monthly scraplift of a member at Memorable Seasons, and I had another photo left over from the same shoot above, so I used it on my lift page to make this a double page spread!

On this page I decided to really showcase the pink and yellow and I think it works!  :)

TFL today and be sure to check out the fabulous prize for this weeks sketch at Sketchy Thursdays!
