Best Trip Ever!

My Creative Sketches' August sketch is a beautiful one by Kim Keane. Here's my take on it.

I decided to give a little twist to this sketch by adding in a punched out frame for the photo. I also used corrugated cardboards for the top left and bottom right square pieces (lightly inked, stickled, and distressed), and added little flowers peeking out from behind the inner frame of the layout.

As usual, there is a great prize to be won, so head on over to the My Creative Sketches blog for the fabulous sketch, and the contest details!
