Scrapbook Sketch challenge

It is time for another sketch challenge over at the ESAD group for Stampin'Up demo's. Mandy Schiller has provided this sketch as the challenge from Page Maps. Thanks for another great sketch Mandy - this was fun.

Here's my take on the sketch. I've used some cute photo's of my boys and I noticed I used red AGAIN. Maybe it's because Caden is wearing that adorable knitted jacket AGAIN.
So the base is 12x12 Riding Hood Red. I've used the swirly image from Baroque Motifs along the top of the page. Then I've added my photo's as per the sketch, the scallop edge and some paper piercing. I've cut out two circles with my Creative Memories cutter and stamped the same swirl image onto the green. Then I've made a letter 'C' and covered with some DP and tied off with a ribbon. I've also added the word cherish from the same stamp set. 'C' is for cherish. Lastly I've added some rub-on words on the photo's and some images in the corners at the top.

Another page done for my family scrapbook for 2009. It's coming along nicely and sketch challenges like this one are certainly motivating me to keep it up to date.
