when in rome... 35

Mona Pendleton | Friday, April 27, 2012 @ 12:05 AM | , , ,

Hi there! Are you ready for the weekend? I will be at 3:00 pm, when my shift ends :) I wanted to scrap, so I pulled out a photo of Scott and I that was taken several years ago in front of the Roman Colosseum:
I pulled out a few sheets of beautiful Webster's Pages DP from the Western Romance collection, some manufactured flowers and a few die cuts. In case you are wondering what dies I used, here is a list: the pretty butterfly was cut using a Spellbinders Wonderful Wings die, the foliage was cut using a Spellbinders Foliage die, the oval doily was cut using a Spellbinders Floral Oval die.
I sort of feel guilty when use manufactured flowers but I must say, I was crunched for time and it was oh so easy to reach into my stash and grab a few beauties :)
 For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Once Upon A Sketch challenge which is also asking players to focus on a "Home" theme.
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you have a great weekend! Be Sweet :)
