Ok, moving on, this week's sketch by Alda is great! Even though it has been posted for only one day I already finished a layout based on the sketch!

Here's this week's sketch (remember, play along for a chance to win a RAK!)

and here's my take"

and some close ups:

I've been meaning to do a layout like this for a while now and this sketch was great for it. The picture is of my husband, my dog and my shadow as we were going for a walk a few days ago. I titled this layout Shadows of the Future and I have hidden journaling behind the picture. Pulling on the date reveals hidden journaling about my husband and I's current struggles (not marital but debt-wise) which of course, I want to keep hidden.

I distressed ever pattern paper that I used. I used two border punch in this layout, both by Martha Stewart. I handmade the white flourishes, butterflies, and flowers. I used Gabrielle's tutorial to make the paper flowers and I love how they came out. These might be my newest favorite handmade flowers. I cut the title with the Pazzles and used Photoshop to make the hidden tag as well as to alter the picture.
