The Scrappiest layout sketch 65

It seems my current great fave  is  the BG Capella
 combined with some Basic pp . 
I just find it so versatile and 
great with my everyday pics so far. 

A very interesting sketch to try this week - Sketch 65
I considered using 2 separate papers/cardstock
 for the diagonal block idea 
but settled on misting a dark color on the diagonal right half
of this BG Basic pp instead & love the effect !
It's rather subtle going from light to dark. 

I used a store bought crochet doily flower here ( with a Prima rosebud center ) 
& crochet trim, now that it's still the trend  . :) 

Another handmade flower idea using Webster's pages Bloomers 
& brown ruffled ribbon as the base. 

If you want to try the sketch and want to win that awesome kit from Scraptacular,
 simply link your creations to Mr. Linky  before the month is over. 
You could be this month's winner!

What a beautiful page, Pearl! I LOVE the Capella line....bought it, but haven't used it yet. Love it mixed here with the BG Basics paper. Now I'm wishing I didn't put that back at the store. ;) Love the mixture of flowers you've used, too. Love your idea of the Bloomer with the ruffled brown trim. Very, very nice!
