I love Pickled Pear!

After seeing the 1st November Saturday Sketch on the Kaisercraft blog, I decided to play along.  It's a gorgeous sketch and I've decided to use my equally gorgeous DT kit from The Scrapbook Store to create my take on it. Here is the sketch.

Here is my take on it.  I've used the Kaisercraft 'Pickled Pear' collection.  I think this is my favourite Kaisercraft range ever!  The photo is of 3 of my cousins when they were little, back in 1966.  I have no idea how I am so fortunate to have this amazing photo of them. Weren't they just the cutest?
A close up of my punched borders, using the Martha Stewart 'Swirling Lace' border punch and I simply adore the pearl strips from Kaisercraft.
My title. :)
 ... and another close up. :)
That's it for today.  I am hoping to show you my first multi medium layout soon. :)  Just got to do the finishing touches.  I just don't know when, as I am running around like a crazy monkey trying to organise myself before the TSS Retreat that's this coming weekend.  I am so excited to meet up with all the lovely ladies I've met during the last 2 retreats!
I have to apologise.  I just haven't had a chance to comment on all my favourite blogs yet, but I promise to give it my best shot in the next day or two. So, hopefully I will 'see' you soon. Fingers crossed. :)
Thanks so much for visiting.  Until next time,
