August Sketch at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone! I am determined to break the 'post drought' on my blog. Lol! I'm hoping to do more than one post a week from now one. Wish me luck! :)
The August sketch at The Scrapbook Store was designed by Melinda Spinks and it's just beautiful!
My take on it. I've turned the sketch on it's side to suit my photo. The photo is of my friend and her baby girl taken in the Spring flowers at Kings Park in 2009.  I've used the Kaisercraft 'Enchanted Garden' collection and I've used the Heidi Swapp 'Sunshine' stencil as a guide to create the 'rays'. 
 A few close up to show some of the detail.  The little fairies and butterflies are just so cute. :)
 These flowers from Petaloo worked perfectly with this collection.
 I cut the title using my Silhouette Cameo.
I hope you get a chance to play along.  There is a $40 store voucher up for grabs, including free postage! The winner gets determined by random draw, so anyone can win!  You have until the end of August to get your entries in. Good luck! :)
Thank you for visiting and to everyone who leaves me lovely comments. I appreciate it.
Until next time!
