Lasting Memories - A Sketch and Bling Challenge

I always love a sketch challenge. This week at Lasting Memories we have a sketch and a bling challenge.

The sketch is a very interesting one. It was a little bit of a challenge for me, but once I decided how to format my photos, it worked quite well.

For the bling portion of the challenge I figured I would put flowers on my page and put some gems in the centers or put a row or two of gems somewhere on the layout. But when I checked out the Bo Bunny blog on June 1st, a layout really struck me. The layout was created by Luzma Bruna. You can check out her blog post here. I love this page and the flower or plant she created along the side of the photo really hit me.

And here is my page. Another one for the garden book. I really love this one. My bling creates leaves and flowers along the line I drew along the left side of the photo.

Go check out what the talented design team came up with using this sketch. I can't wait to see your blingy interpretation.
