I only snapped one photo when we went out to visit and celebrate my parent's 51st anniversary in February. When I saw the Athentique April Sketch Challenge, I pulled the 5x7 print of that photo and set to work creating a layout using the sketch. I rearranged some of the elements so that my embellishments covered up distracting items in the photo.
This layout uses papers from two of Authentique's collections. The black and white papers are from the Everlasting collection, which I've had in my stash for a couple of years. The papers with fall colors are from the Harvest collection, which I picked up at Personal Scrapbook this past December.
The letter stickers, flowers, and bling all came from my stash and add lots of dimension to this page.
This was a great challenge to help me with my goal to be ACTIVE in using my stash this year!
