Stuck?! Sketches! DT December 15th 2017 - Family

Welome back to my blog today where I'm sharing a DT page for

This is a great sketch for multiple photos.
I hope you will feel inspired to join in and be eligible for one of the lovely prizes. 
As I wanted a soft and pretty look, I chose some newer papers for this challenge,
they are from Jen Hadfield, the Heart and Home collection. 
The grey paper is an older one from BoBunny; Isabella, "Savvy" 
The flowers are from my stash - Green Tara and Prima.  The die cut foliage is 
Down Under Scrapbooking.
The butterfly was fussy cut from the Bo Bunny paper and I rubbed a bit of Prima Metallic Wax on the white birdcage to soften it.

The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-
Because you live so far away, we don't get to see you as often as we'd like.  However, one of these photos was taken with you perched on our kitchen bench, chewing happily on some Basil.   It was wonderful to have you visit for a few days and share a picnic in the park with your Uncles, Aunties and big cousins.  You've discovered that cardboard boxes are great fun and you enjoy going to the market with Mummy and Daddy on the weekend. We are so lucky that your parents send photos almost every day and we love seeing  your latest tricks.   Looking forward to seeing you again at Christmas time.

  1. Oh what gorgeous papers for your wonderful page showing your sweet grandbaby & her folks! Love all the elements--especially the row of little hearts & the white branch! So glad you get to see them for Christmas, Helen! Sending Holiday Hugs, Greta

  2. Gosh you have done a awesome job on the sketch . I like how you have treated the bird cage and the PP is so pretty and by using the soft pink and grey as your photo mat the pattern paper shines.
    Glad you get to see your Grand baby at Christmas Helen and wishing you a beautiful Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year x

  3. Such a pretty layout Helen! Love all the sweet photos of your family! Your grandbaby is precious! The pretty blossoms and trimming adds a nice touch! Hope you have a great week!

  4. So pretty Helen and a great interpretation of the sketch!

  5. Gorgeous page, what a pretty colour scheme and I love how you've used the sketch - the triangle against the patterned paper really makes the photos pop. How unusual for a baby to enjoy chomping on basil :o) xxx

  6. Fabulous paper choice and love the use of multiple photos! The geometric accents give this your usual modern flair which I admire sooooo much! Wishing you and yours a merry Christmas, Autumn
