make every MOMENT count...OUAS August 48

***I have two posts today, if you are looking for my MFT August Teaser Time Day 2 post, please click HERE. Thank you :)

It's time again for a new monthly sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch! Over 100 players! Thanks to all who took on the challenge ~ so many beautiful layouts! Shown below is August's lovely sketch with a Theme: Season (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring)

For my layout, I featured a photo of Emily, Connor and Meredith that was taken for this year's SPRING prom.
This layout contains 100% homemade paper flowers using a variety of Die-namics dies along with a few chipboard elements from Imaginarium Designs. What do you think of the big tan bloom shown below? I made that using Grungepaper and the Die-namics Plentiful Petals which happens to be at the top of my die flower making list right now! :)
Shown below is a chipboard flourish that I altered using Gesso and Ranger Distress Stain along with a Grunge paper rolled rose using a Die-namics Mini Royal Roses die:
I love to get a lot of mileage out of my stamps and incorporate them when scrapping as well as card making. To make the heart die cut below, I used the Die-namics Layered Heart to cut two different layers: patterned paper and corrugated cardboard, then I centered and stamped a sentiment from Die-namics Behind the Camera Die and Stamp Set and finished it off with rolled rose:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you play along! There are prizes to be had, so be sure to visit the Once Upon A Sketch site for complete details as well as all the other designers! Be Sweet :)
