Layout: Wanted

The ONE good thing about having a child with a broken leg is that I am leaving work early each day to pick her up. We live in a small town and there is no bus service and we live about a mile and a half from the school. That's a long walk on crutches. Unfortunately, most of the week I get her home and run out and get some errands done but today I got home and immediately got to work on the newest sketch at Stuck On U Sketches. I saw the sketch earlier this week when I was cruising some blogs late at night and originally planned to do something frilly and soft and romantic - much like the sketch itself. Instead, I combined the sketch with a challenge at ACOT to use Cosmo Cricket papers. This is the WANTED line and I think it works perfect with my photo of the kids and their cousins at the shooting gallery! I am also entering this in the Punky Scraps challenge to use 3 out of the following 5 techniques:

ditressing - Check
misting - Check (I misted the doily)
black & white photo  (Check - well I used Sepia)
sparkles (not limited to bling....anything that is sparkly counts!)Gold key and buttons.  They are much shinier in real life so I hope it counts if the Sepia doesn't!

On another note, I want to extend my prayers and thoughts to all of those affected by the earthquakes and tsunami's that took place today. One of my closest friends is Japanese and her family is still there. I spent the morning glued to my tv, texting my friend trying to reassure her that everyone would be ok. By mid-afternoon I received word that she had indeed made contact with her family and all were well, although shaken up. Her family is mostly in Tokyo but she has a good friend in Sentai where the quake hit the hardest. Please keep them in your prayers along with all of the other victims of this awful natural disaster.

This is really very stunning! The paper choices are all totally perfect!
I was in the hospital with my Mom while watching all the news...kind of put things into perspective, ya know?
My prayers are with them all as well.
