Simple Moments Twisted Sketch #140 Twist White

Is it Wednesday already!! Time for another Twisted Sketches reveal. Head over to Twisted Sketches and grab sketch #140 with the twist of white, for a sure cure to any lack of mojo you may have. Such an inspiring sketch, and here is my take on it:

I took the sketch and turned it 90 degrees counter clock wise, and then started scrapping away. I used my gorgeous Scraps of Elegance February Kit-Vintage Elegance to create this layout.  It features a photo of my 2 nieces, Haley and Megan, who are sisters. They are at Megan's wedding where Haley was the flower girl. I have actually scrapped this photo before, but at Christmas all the girls made their way into my scrap room, and had fun picking out which layouts they wanted for their own. The layout that I had done of Haley & Megan was one of the one's that Meg took, so I just had to rescrap the photo.

Here are some close ups:

 The Webster's Pages and Kaisercraft papers from the kit had so many beautiful pieces that I fussy cut from them. The sweet foliage was a gift from Vija (Kobe2256). Thank you Vija-they found the perfect home on this layout!

 The Scraps Of Elegance had these sweet little vintage tags, and I tucked this one behind my flower layer.

 My Dark Sister, Karen (LostCoastScrapper) shared this lace with me-isn't it beautiful??! I used some Dusty Attic Columns that I layered in Tim Holtz Stains at the bottom corner and top corner. The small roses are Prima and came in the SOE kit. The large flowers are also Prima flowers, and were from my stash.

The flourish is also Dusty Attic that I painted in Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle Paint (my twist-white). I left some of the sides, with the raw chipboard color showing, in order to get some contrast against the light colored papers, and then popped on one of those sweet Webster's Pages Sparklers from the SOE kit.

Don't tell Megan, but I actually like this redo better than the original. I think I will hide it so she doesn't find it-lol!! Thanks for the visit! ~Renea
