Unscripted Sketches #101

I am very excited to be posting my 1st artwork as part of the Unscripted Sketches Design Team. As you know, I love sketches as they are such a great starting point to any artwork. Having a sketch to work with really helps me get the creativity going because part of the work (the layout) is already done for me! And every Saturday, Unscripted Sketches brings a new sketch to create with so let's get to this week's sketch - #101:

Now one of the great thing about the US challenges is that you can use the sketch to create anything - card, layout, altered item - whatever your heart desires (and the sketch inspires you to create)!

I have had a special baby on my mind this past week - my new granddaughter, born 15 weeks early. And to track some of her "firsts" I decided to put together a little mini book and this sketch was used to create the cover - take a look:

I was suprised as I was making this how many "ones" she has in her stats! And yes, you are seeing that right - she weighed just 1 lb., 1 oz. at birth - she's a peanut! The paper I used is from Cosmo Cricket, the die cut "one" from a Papertrey Ink die and the number one stamp from Close To My Heart. I also stamped the 3 butterflies (from Unity), cut them out and then stitched them together to add a dimensional element to the page.

I hope you will give Unscripted Sketches a try this week  - I would love to see what you create! Thanks US for allowing me to be a part of the team!!

What a priceless page & photo Mary!
Love the emphasis on the weigh & length. That butterfly added such great dimension on your page too.

What a gorgeous page you created for little Liberty, Mary! My prayers are with you and your family for her continued growth and well being.
