August Sketch challenge

Hi there bloggy friends! Just want to share Handmade by Suzanne's August sketch with you all.  Isn't it a beauty... and designed by Michelle Fowler, our own sketch guru. :)
Here is my take on the sketch using the awesome new Kaisercraft 'Miss Nelly' collection. That big scalloped die cut was just perfect for this sketch. The pic is of my DD back in 2007.  I just love the look of joy on her face. :) 
 I've  done a fair bit of hand- and machine stitching on here.
 The last of my Jenni Bowlin butterflies. :(

So why don't you give this gorgeous sketch a go?  You could win yourself a $30 store voucher to spend at Handmade by Suzanne.  The winner gets determined by random draw, so anybody can win! Just load your take on the sketch into the Gallery before midnight on the 31st of August. :)

That's all for today. I'll be back with more layouts pretty soon. :)
Thanks for visiting and I have an awesome weekend!
