New at the Nook!

Happy Monday!!
 
Today is my first post as part of the Scrapping Nook Design Team and I get to share with you our new monthly Sketch Challenge! A new sketch with be posted on the first Monday of each month so check back regularly.  If you just happened across this post today, pleas head over to the Scrapping Nook blog to see how the rest of the team interpreted the sketch.
 
Before I share the sketch with you, here is my take on it. I love this photo of my daughter kissing my pregnant belly. She was 8 years old at the time, and you can see by the look on her face she was uncomfortable doing it! ;)
 
 
Here is the fun sketch that we get to play along with this month.
 
 
I've got some close ups to better show off the details...
 
 
I made a Polaroid frame on my Silhouette. I took a basic frame and welded the word 'family' to it. The 'new arrival' arrow was also cut from the silhouette.
 
 
I cut a strip of hearts out of vellum on the silhouette as well. I used the negative space as a layer under my photo, and I used the hearts as embellishments throughout the layout.
 
 
I rubbed some pink ink on my craft mat and spritzed it with water. I then loaded a paint brush up with the inky water and flicked it on my page...no mist required!
 
 
So that is it for me today. I hope you will join us and play along with our challenge for your chance to win 'Nook Prize!!'
