June Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone! I know, I am VERY late sharing The Scrapbook Store's Sketch Challenge this month.  You still have until the end of the month to enter our June Sketch Challenge. Here's the sketch:
My take on the sketch. The photo is of my 2 kids with my mum and dad in the background (taken in January 2008).
I've used the 'Gingers Dreams' sheet from the new Blue Fern Studios 'Ombre Dreams' collection as my background paper.  I added dimension, using a Prima template and Memory Box stencil and texture paste, before adding mists and inks.  The chipboard are Blue Fern  Studios 'Graduated Circles' and Dusty Attic 'Scroll Border #3'.  All chipboard pieces were first covered in gesso, before I added mists and inks to colour them up.
The flowers are from Petaloo, Kaisercraft and Green Tara and the title is a wordlet from Scrap FX.
 Another few close ups of the background. The butterflies are Heidi Swapp epoxy stickers.

So why not play along?  There's a $40 Store Voucher up for grabs and you also get free postage!! That's a pretty awesome prize. :) The winner gets determined by random draw, so anyone could win!  Just upload your entries in the Gallery before the end of the month to stand a chance.
Okay, that's all for today.  Hope you have a fabulous week and once again thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Until next time!
