Life Paper Scrapbook - August sketch

 Hello dear friends.  After a little holiday break I'm back with a creative share.  The August sketch is up at Life Paper Scrapbook - with a new large design team - there will be two reveals on two days ☺
Here is the sketch:

 And here's my take on the sketch:

 I stayed true to the sketch and very much enjoyed the layered elements.  Whenever there is a circle element, I tend to go with stamps, black pen or stitching, rather than using a piece of pattern paper - it never seems to work for me.
I adore these pictures that my sister took of my boys ♥ and the set of two worked perfectly for this sketch.
Here are some close-up's:
 My title and some texture using the CW mini circle grid.
 A cluster of embellishments including a fabulous flair
My journalling and a part of the circle element - here I've used a MME stamp from an older collection of last year. I love my stamps ☺
Here are all the details for the challenge:
- You can submit ANY kind of project that you can use the sketch for: cards, layouts or anything you can adapt it to. 
- You can use the sketch and colour challenges together just make sure you link it up to each so you have a chance to win in both. 
- August Sketch Challenge runs until 11.59pm 23 August. (Don't forget we are in Australia)
- The winner of the prize will be randomly drawn.
