May Challenge

Time for a challenge! This months sketch challenge has just gone live over at My Creative Sketches and as always there is a great prize up for grabs. The deadline for entry is the 14th June so you have got plenty of time to get scrapping. You can find all the details here.
I am really enjoying scrapping the photos of baby Amelie, she is such a little sweetie and is more than happy to pose for photographs! She was about 10 days old in this photo.
I used remnants of the April Limited Edition Kit which was full of Prima Songbird papers which I have totally fallen in love with!


Here is the sketch, it is based on a layout created by the very talented Delaina, you can check out her blog here.

A few close up for you....

I love using lace on my pages and wanted to use it to add some texture to this page, to create the lace circle I cut out the circle (using patterned paper as some of the pattern will show through) and marked in pencil the area that was going to show on the page. I covered that area with double sided tape and starting at the bottom stuck on lengths of lace slightly overlapping them. Once the area was covered I trimmed off the edges and then secured the lace by adding some stitching.



Here is the fab prize that Pam has put together...
