Artastic March and Feeling Sketchy

Good day to you all! I hope your Monday is going wonderfully well!!

The latest inspiration challenge over at ARTASTIC is to be inspired by this painting..

Well when I saw that I thought it reminded me so much of my youngest.. and I found a serious photo of her and went with that..

She is so ... seriously cute..

 and a bit closer...

I was also inspired by the purplish back ground.. I have used old kaiser papers and flowers that I have had for years...I know the added criteria was to use a portrait photo, well mine was until I put it into the round frame!! I took it as a portrait photo is a photo of a face...

The Monday sketch is up at FEELING SKETCHY and I have created a card for it..

The sketch..
  and my card..

Well I have to get my skates on and get some other things done this afternoon!
Thanks for coming by and your comments are always appreciated!!

  3. Lizzy I love your purple page and doesn't it make you feel good to be able to use up some of the older things in your stash. I love to try and make use of older things or it seems such a waste to let them sit in the cupboard. I particularly like the way the photo is framed and goes diagonally across the page.
