Here's this month's sketch.
Our Sketch Challenge is open to anyone. So come on, play along.
The challenge runs till February 15th
Here's my take on the sketch:

You light up my life

My darling little grandson, all covered in Christmas Lights.
journaling reads: These twinkling lights, reflect your personality, in a perfect way!
I made my background by using an Angelwire die-cut circle as my transfer of paints.
I Gesso-ed my craftsheet and pressed the die-cut circle in it. Then I placed it on my paper and brayered over it. I repeated this step with 2 colors of paint. I love the subtile, yet distressed look.
I treated my Chipboard frame with Versa Mark and some cool, Ranger Embossing powder that we got in a previous kit. When you melt it, it has amazing silver spots in it. I can't recall the name.

Sweet bundle of joy

If only a picture could show the beautiful detail it has in real life!
This is my little grandson, wearing his new bathrobe he got for Sinterklaas.
Sinterklaas is kind of what Santa is to you, and it is celebrated on December 5th.
If you look closely to this picture, you see the little birthmark on my grandson his nose.
So super cute! Yeah I know..... grandma's are Always bragging. LOL
I did a lot of fussy cutting for this page.
These Blue Fern Studios - Sanctuary papers are simply AMAZING!
I filled up the half printed flowers, with die-cutted organza flowers (Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die)
In the Main Kit there comes a Clear stampset by BoBunny which I used quit a lot on this page.
I just love the small detailed stamps. The crackle in the background is made with Art Anthologie stencil and the Dimensional Paint that came in the Mediums AddOn. I sprinkled gold glitter on it while it was still wet. After it dried I sanded it a little.

Just for You
I just adore these BFS Sanctuary papers. This card opens up like a regular card, but on the front I made an extra flip up element and when you open it up, it reveals a tag/giftcard pocket.
At the top you see 2 different shades of the lace, which comes in the Main Kit, I colored mine by soaking it in cold coffee.
I hope that you liked my projects. This Kit is to die for!!!!!!

Everything is wonderful but the first page is beautiful. Love the round circle in the middle, the light bulb to carry on the theme.
The baby peeking out of the blanket is precious.
