Hey there Scrappy Friends!
I am excited to be guest designing at Stuck?! Sketches for the September 1st sketch challenge this month! I was honored to be asked as I love playing along with Laura's sketches!
I used one of Sierra's senior photos along with Kaiser Craft Sea Breeze and a Just Nick cut file and came up with this:

I backed the cut file with patterned paper and then stitched the outside of the circle. I cut a Polaroid wood veneer frame from my stash in half and added a coat of Gesso and a coat of maroon paint and put that behind my photo, just to bring in a little of her sweater color.

I added some banners, a washi tape sticker and the "Life is better when you are laughing" sticker:

I fussy cut the title " Seeing your smile makes me happy" from one of the patterned papers. I also fussy cut all the flowers and leaves on this page

There's a little story behind the sub-title. The photographers (Mark & Heidi) are also Sierra's friend's aunt and uncle. The friends Dad and Sierra were talking and Sierra said the word poolish, ever since then he has called her Poolish and so have Mark & Heidi. When they saw this photo, Mark and Heidi said "That's her poolish laugh"

Here is the fabulous sketch:

Stuck is celebrating their anniversary this month and have lots going on::

Stuck?! Sketches is also having a DT call and it is open until September 3, so get your applications in!

I would love to try out, but I am back to work and life is crazy right now. Maybe next time.
I would like to say thank you to Laura and the entire Stuck?! design team for having me this month!
