Family - Get Picky Sketch #7 Challenge

I did this LO for the sketch challenge at Get Picky using my April Swirlydoos kit.  It's a great sketch and easy to work with!  Check it out here.

The April Swirlydoos kit was full of the Bo Bunny Gabrielle line of papers and they are so perfect for vintage LOs.   Loved doing this page as I love the pictures, the girls all look so pretty.  Its kind of fun to see everyone so dressed up and just knowing that this is how they always looked for the most part! 

I was out in my yard today and saw that the camelias were blooming so I thought I'd try to replicate them.  This is my first attempt, I think I can do better !  I need a different center - I feel a major shopping trip coming on!

I so love Dusty Attic chipboard.  Those aqua swirly leaves are Dusty Attic that I have painted with acrylic paints and then with Diamond Glaze. 

Cardstock: Bazzill Birchtone Dark; Bazzill coral medium

Patterned paper: Bo Bunny Gabrielle Collection Promenade, Romance; Crafter’s Workshop Enchanted Compliments Moonlight Aqua
Letter stickers: Thickers Salutation
Chipboard: Dusty Attic DA0506 Foliage
Flowers: handmade from CS
Ink: Colorbox chestnut roan
Other: MM aqua oval pearls; Bo Bunny Gabrielle Trinkets; Prima Lace; pearlescent water color paint, acrylic paints, Diamond Glaze on chopboard
Unknown: Swirlydoos acrylic spray & pink flowers

Thanks for stopping by!
