This sketch...





This sketch was pretty tough! The examples mostly had photograps in the main boxes, and definitely showed two boxes side by side.
Well, since I don't have occasion to shoot a lot of photo's of kids or fun things anymore, I decided to just use an image. I used a stamp from TAC's new set "Playful Parenthesis". I stamped it with black ink on white cs and then with white ink on black cs. I cut each down the middle and adhered half black and half white together. I thought this would differentiate that there were two photo blocks. The fabulous papers are from Gina K's downloadable papers. The pattern is "Jersey Shore". I hope that you like it! The photo is not very good - it's dark and dreary, and rainy this a.m.!



Have a great day - off to work I go! (I think I'm down to 39 work days today before retirement!)

This is a fabulous take on the sketch!!! I love how you did the middle panels, brilliant!
I was a bit intimidated when I was it, being on vacation with limited supplies didn't help either! lol But you hit this one right on....just beautiful!
