Your Scrapbook Stash at OUAS. Second sketch

In my previous post I promised another totally different take on the latest sketch at Once Upon A...Sketch.

This one I did for the YSS blog.

To see the sketch and all the DT and guest DT samples please visit the OUAS blog HERE.

Also look for a for a link to the WINNERS OF THE STASH CASH at YSS at the end of this post!

I have loved the "Pink Paislee" "Sweetness" collection for the longest time, yet this is the first layout I make using those lovely papers.
I turned the sketch on its side to accomodate my picture and  embellishments.

The beautiful golden lace as well as all the pp are from Your Scrapbook Stash. The yellow stickers are  by Pink Paislee and the green letter stickers that are real favourites of mine are October Afternoon.

"Sweetness" is 25% off right now (may be running low) and using the code MAY15 will earn you an additional 15 % off your whole order!! Great isn't it...?

To mimic the circles on the sketch I drew some circles of my own, and did some sewing by hand.
That's a rare thing , but ...hey,.. what will I not do for scrapbooking...? 

The cute picture was taken last weekend when we all went to Denmark (except Victoria who was a contestant at Lund in the Swedish finals for the European Youth Parliament....................).
The girls' 14 year old cousin Nicolay, was having his confirmation and we were invited. All went well and Nicolay passed with flying colours.
Some of you may recognize this little man from pics taken at a gathering here for the Swedish tradition of St Lucia in December. He has grown since we last saw him and he will be one in not too long.
Beatrice was proud to be found old enough to be in charge of Silas. He is really a goodtempered boy but at this moment he was getting a bit tired after a long day and not much of a nap.... Who wouldn't be grumpy...?

I just love babies, and with no chance of any more own babies around here it was such a treat to have one to play with. Especially one as sweet as this little boy!

I covered another one of my chipboard pages from 'the same old album' and inked the edges with pink. I used a pencil for some faux stitching and used pop dots to add it to the page.
The OUAS journaling requirement this week is for it to be typed. I stuck the strips on and below the title, more or less in the fashion of the sketch. Journaling is just saying that it is the second time they meet and that Beatrice utterly enjoyed taking care of her baby cousin.
She is also happy that she will have another little cousin, a girl, at the end of August.
That is so great!

I added a pretty mulberry flower and a couple of Prima leaves to balance all the pretty roses from the pp.
The strips were made using an EK Success punch.

I decided to go with black/white for the photograph on this because the colours are very bright and sunny.  I did not want the colours to overwhelm the picture.

A couple of more close ups. This layout was so fun to photograph....lol!

Finally a close up of the gorgeous chipboard corner ornament from Imaginarium Designs.
I have previously told you about Jane at Seriously Scrapbooking sponsoring the OUAS Design Team.
We are so lucky!!
