After oooooing and aaaaahing over all the papers and embellies in the kit, I picked out the papers and embellies I would use for the sketch challenge. I like to do that one first as it seems to get my mojo working. Here is a picture of my parents on their wedding day. I added the cameos from last month's embellishment add-on.
Here's a close-up.
This beautiful sketch is your inspiration, now get creating!
Our July sketch challenge runs until August 15th, and is open to EVERYONE!

This is the sketch challenge prize:
Next, I worked on a layout with that gorgeous fan chippie. I added some White Sands texture paste, Glimmer Mist, and some embossing powder. The papers were perfect for a vintage ancestor page. I added some flowers that were in a wine box purchased from the Swirly store.
Here's another vintage layout. The papers were screaming vintage wedding!
The wooden pieces were part of the main kit.
My daughter sent some selfies of the St. Louis Color Run that I used for this page. The colors were perfect. One of the flowers was made from the purple crepe paper that we received in a past Swirlydoos technique add-on. I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.
Here's that crepe paper flower.
I like the twine that was part of the main kit. I used it to frame some of the pictures.
Here's some inspiration for the All that Flutters challenge that is hosted every month at Swirlydoos. My step-daughter just graduated from high school this May. I thought these papers were just right. I used flowers from the flower add-on as well as some from my stash.
I brushed the edges of the Prima flower with the resin face using some LuminArte' in Boysenberry. Then, I misted it with a pearl mist to make the color bleed a little. More of that cool twine to frame the pictures here, too.
