Chilhood Is A Journey***StuckOnUSketches*** featuring ***Zva Creative***

To kick off the new year, I was asked once again to Guest Design at StuckOnUSketches!! Love that site!! Sandi, Nanné, Leah and their talented Design Team always blow me away with their beautiful creations. It always amazes me, when I see the diverse interpretation of one single sketch! Each one gorgeous in its own right.
With CHA right around the corner, I was pleased to use some of the new products from Zva Creative on my SOUS layout. Purples and Lavenders are some of my favorite colors.

Instead of placing the strip journaling to the side of the LO as shown on the sketch, I opted to place it on the tag that is tucked beneath the photo. The photo is my beautiful friend Faith teaching her precious daughter Emma how to blow on dandelions. I love that the sketch incorporated a tag, I used my Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate die. It is the same size as the manilla tags that he uses so often for his projects. I adhered the paper over chipboard to give it some body, and I also adhered blue paper to the back for future journaling.

The Zva Flowers are always a perfect match to their pearl and crystal swirls and flourishes.

This beautiful Zva crystal flourish is big and beautiful. The photo's never do them justice as they sparkle so brightly in real life.

Here is another group of flowers with some more flourishes in pearls and crystals. Zva also has leaves in all shapes and sizes that go so well with all of their flowers. They are little velvety pieces of Zva goodness to tuck under your flowers. .

And here is the wonderful sketch that was designed by Nanné. I love all of the layers. Now you have to go visit StuckOnUSketches to see what the girls and their Design Team have created using the sketch. You will surely be inspired!! Head on over and create your own LO using the sketch. Just submit your project to SOUS by using inlinkz, its easy .. Just follow the instructions!!
Thank you so much for having me once again and giving me such an inspiring sketch to work with. It has been my pleasure to Guest Deign for SOUS once again!
