New Sketchabilities Post up today

The Newest Sketch is up at Sketchabilites today (#69) and 
I decided to do my page of my wonderful niece and her
trip to Greece this spring.  She got to go for a week
for college and really loved the whole experience
and loved the fabulous old ruins everywhere.

So being that I am putting together lots of pages
for her to remember the fun things she did at college
this is one more to add to her book.

So here is the sketch we got this week #69

and here is my take on it----

For my page I found this really neat old looking papers 
in gray, greens and cream that went perfect with her photos
she sent me.  They were in Thessalonica and the picture
where she is looking up is her thinking about where
the crepe store is up the street.......she loves good food!!
and for a small town USA girl this was one amazing trip...

So this photo is a closeup of 2 dies I used from Spellbinders.
They are Twisted Metal Tags and Accents S5-071
and the border from Damask Accents S5-080
and I added purchased flowers and pearls to match it.
I left the tag blank so that my niece can fill in with
her words about some of their favorite things she did there.

My favorite thing about Karan's sketches is how much
fun it is to add details on your pages no matter what you
decide to use for that spot.  Each sketch she does
 every 2 weeks has lots of detail and
is really fun to work on. She's amazing!
For the page I cut the flags like the sketch had them 
and added these fun pieces from the die to make it look
more Roman/ Greek looking.  And adding the 
embossing on the dies gives it that much more dimension.

Hope this gives you a few fun ideas and be sure and check
out all the other layouts on the blog this week and
you can even do your own sketch and win prizes!

Have a wonderful day,
