Another two for one deal. Tonight I used the Sketch at Pencil Lines (my first time, but I loved the sketch and really wanted to use it). It's not much like the sketch, however, the sketch did give me the motivation to create my layout. I'm rather pleased with how it turned out!
And I based my layout on a challenge over at FunkyFairyInspirations. They had a challenge to create something related to "Dance." The prize for this challenge is a super cute stamp- it's a dancing elephant named Ellarina, how freakin' cute is that!?!
Edited: Wooooo, this can be a three-fer now! I was wondering if I would ever get to use it for a monocromatic layout, and as luck would have it, I can! In celebration of Beverley's birthday the challenge over at Blog 'Til you Drop! is to create something using the color PINK!! woooo, not only is my fave color, its also Bev's fave as well, exciting! I love this layout so why not use it for another challenge!?!
So my layout is of my grandparents 50th anniversay a few years back. I've been wanting to do something with it for a while now. It was at their dance, after the reception. They were so in love and just seeing them that day made me smile, I hope I get to share 50 years with my better half- it's been nearly 8, which isn't bad for such young'uns...lol. The anniversary was such a special day for my family because just a year later my grandfather passed away of a massive heartattack on my uncles boat. So now all we have are the memories, which made this layout very near and dear to my heart.
