Meeting the Cast :)

Hi everyone! :)

I wanted to share a couple of layouts I made this weekend for a couple of sketch challenges :)

The first one is for Lily Bee :)

This one turned out a lot busier than what was in my head... lol... but the sketch was pretty full -- so I think I made it work :)

I punched circles and hearts and then took the negative circles and masked the background with them :)



Saturday, Brookie and I went to the Chandler Center for the Arts and saw the play, "Happily Ever After ... A Cinderella Story"  -- it was really sweet and we got to meet the cast after the show ... they were all so sweet to Brookie :)





On my layout, I included the cover of the program from the show and one of our tickets too!! :)






Here is the Lily Bee sketch :)


The next layout I made was for the latest sketch challenge at Elle's Studio :)




Brian and Adam had gone to see a movie while we were at the play... so we had a little while to hang out waiting for the boys to come back and get us ... so of course I had to take some photos of her while we were hanging out! :)





Here is Elle's Studio's sketch :)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
