We thank you all so much for taking the time
to join this hop and hope that you'll be provided with
a ton of incredible inspiration and lots of fun!
We would also just LOVE for you to create
a project using our sketch so if you do
make sure to come back and share that with us!
Happy Hopping friends!

Now for my take on the sketch! I actually have two different takes. One using the Scraps Of Darkness Kit and one using the Scraps Of Elegance Kit. 

This first one is my take using the Scraps of Darkness Kit:

It features a photo that I took of one of my favorite places~the lake where I live. I am an avid hiker and I head out every morning for at least 45 minutes. I am so fortunate to live where I can step out my door and in about 2 minutes be down at this gorgeous place and then into the woods. I actually live in a subdivision, but it is surr ounded by 2 different lakes and lots of hiking trails and woods that conserve the Chickamauga Creek a natural feeding creed for the Tennessee River.  I used the SOUS sketch along with the kit to create a rustic, Wintery feel. 

This next layout was created with the SOUS sketch and the Scraps Of Elegance Kit.

It features a sweet photo of my son, Draven when he was about 3 years old, and I used the sketch, kit and a pair of his Daddy's old jeans to create a wonderful masculine look.

Thanks for hopping by on your way through the blog hop!!
Now head on over to Nanne Harry's  Nanne's Creations Blog, and have fun!! Hugs~Renea
