" Doilies + A Sketch" FDFF Challenge!

Hi everyone! I hope you have enjoyed your week so far. I have been lucky enough to finally have some real time off, instead of just a day here and there- this past weekend I had 5 days off and I have enjoyed myself catching up on DT work, new April challenges, and of course the dreaded task of packing and organizing for our move on May 29th. There's still alot to do but I feel like I am making headway. The hubby was off with me for 2 days in a row as well so I made sure to put him to work! LOL! 

I am here to share my LO for the new challenge that's up over at Frosted Designs! It's our Fabulous Friday Challenge again and this time we want you to create a layout or project using doilies and this sketch: 

Isn't this a great sketch by Brenshevia?? I love it! So this is what I ended up doing, I pretty much stuck to the original, since I liked the sketch so much I didn't rotate it or anything. I had some real paper doilies in my stash so I made sure to ink them up with lots of Tim Holtz and added them to my LO. 
This is how it turned out:

Here are some more close up shots I took in the window today, while the sun was out for a short while :)

The papers and most of the embellishments I used were from a pack I bought on discount at Tuesday Mornings! I love that store!! They have some good stuff every now and again if you dig thru their bins. I found this huge paper pack that included brads, flowers, trims and lace, chipboard letters, fussy cut pieces, plus about 20 sheets of 12x 12 patterned paper all for only $16.99. I think this line is made by "The Girl's Paperie" and it's called " On Holiday".
 From my stash I only added the red crochet mini doilies, the red baker's twine, paper doilies, thickers, buttons, and of course some ink and stickles!!!

Ok friends, if you want to win our prize for this challenge, all you have to do is link up your layout or project using this sketch and doilies no later than May 8th and you will be in our drawing for the prize this time from VINTAGE STREET MARKET and of course the DT pick's TOP 3! We would love for you to play along! Thanks for stopping by my blog today... I always enjoy the lovely comments! XoX :) until next time, Peace Y'all~ VV
