Moving Forward

Hi you all and yay to the weekend. Since I have blogger I get this wondeful morning informational email of what all my favorite blogger sites are doing and sketchabilities had this super cute sketch that I knew I had to try. So this is my take on the sketch:
and this is the sketch:

Isn't this a fun sketch :) So I had this up for a couple of days on my computer, so I could see what I wanted to do with it and Wednesday night I started digging through my top drawer for some pictures and came across these 2 thought yep they are the ones. I used my current counterfeit kit for the layout other than the holly & berries paper that was from another layout I did this past week.
I painted the right side with Making Memories paint effect kit: Springtime, I liked the effect so much that I painted a border all around the page.
 The pictures are of me and Buddy Christmas Eve 2005, I used the frames in the kit to frame the pictures, the chevrons were punch out with a SU punch and CTMH: Charming Chevrons Flair stamp set was used with perfect pearls to create the metallic look. Added a sticker from the colorbok Antique Paperie collection. The doily was a cut out ad I finished up those negative cut dots on the doily with some glossy accents. The words moving forward thought was fitting cause we moved on from one shot to the next trying to get the perfect picture which didn't happen but got these 2 supper cute pics instead. The heart came from CTMH Florentine sticker pack
 I finished up that scallop tape for one of strips, and included the gold cutout I did one night doing a variety of cuts on my cameo, and the top strip was just punched with EKsuccess  punch scallop scallop. The hearts are the negative cuts from something I cut, to cute to throw out so I finally got a layout it would work on. The variety of sprinkled dots is from stickles: waterfall
 The bow was cut that night too, did a few of these bows in a variety of papers and weights of papers too. The first ones didn't come out so well but after chatting with an online friend found out you have to curve it with a boner first like you would for ribbon to give it the spiral look after that it didn't look to bad, I added stickles to the center piece of the bow. The journaling card was cut in half and came from Simple Stories documented line.
I haven't gotten the jist of the splattered look yet, but I'm enjoying working on it.
