So Sketchy Fun

Happy Monday Everyone!!!
I trust you had a wonderful day, (even if it was Monday!!)
My day was very good indeed!!!  Nothing special happened, but then, nothing bad happened either.  It was a good day to rejoice and be thankful for all that I have!!!
I hope you found yourself rejoicing today as well!!!

As promised, I have a So Sketchy layout to share!!
The So SketchyBlog is an excellent source of inspiration as well as amazing examples from the talented Design Team!  Here is the sketch that I used for this week:
A very basic sketch that I thought would be great fun to use some Pink Paislee papers with!!
You gotta love Pink Paislee and these papers are so rich and beautiful-perfect for a dramatic layout!!  I found this quote:
 A child's eyes, those clear, wells of undefiled thought - what on earth can be more beautiful? Full of hope, love and curiosity, they meet your own. In prayer, how earnest; in joy, how sparkling; in sympathy, how tender! The man who never tried the companionship of a little child has carelessly passed by one of the great pleasures of life, as onepassses a rare flower withoutplucking it or knowing its value Caroline Norton
and I knew I had a picture of my sweet Bethany Marie that highlighted her big beautiful eyes that would work perfectly with this quote.  The papers have a big beautiful red rose on them that I thought would be fun to cover with glass beads
 to add dimension.  Here is the result:
You can see the dimension the beads add to the flower, what the picture doesn't show is the depth the beads create!  It was a fun project!!!

Well, I gotta work on cleaning out my scraproom!!! It is a mess!  
Have a great night,
