It's a sketch challenge, the first one for Scrap It Girl.  I love sketches it really gives me a jumping off point and speeds up the process.
the quote says "The eyes are the window to the soul"


When I seen this sketch I immediately knew the photos I wanted to use and the colors. This is my daughter, my muse, (sometimes, other times, well let's not go there, tehe), for ability to have fun, relax, enjoy life and don't be so serious! She reminds me of this all the time in ways she isn't even aware of. I love these bold photos and these colors. This was an awesome sketch to work with thanks Kelly Starsky, it made things so much easier. I have been working on making my own flowers, the larger ones here were made with Stampin Ups build a blossom punch.

Some supplies I used on this layout; recollections border decoration,
stampin up build a blossom punch, digi paper from digitial crea and summertime designs, th muse tag, misc buttons, ek border punch, prima bling and the background paper I kid you not is paris hilton, dont laugh this is awesome paper, in fact I loved it so much I ended up buying another pad.
