FAMILY CHeeR - Stuck?! Sketches + SATW Mood Board

Hi there!

I am back playing along with 
with a chance to GUEST DESIGN with Laura's talented team
I had this old photo, it's in mint condition (not a crack or tear - although a little stain
 that can easily be covered * she winks)
of my Daddy (as a child), my Baba, her mother (my Double Baba), 
her father (my Double Gigi), and her brother (my Uncle Mike)
I really needed to scrap this photo but wanted to do a non-traditional holiday
layout.  The SATW mood board helped me with that!

 Here are some close ups:
 My title is a mix of Carta Bella Element Stickers and Thickers (altered)
I love how they kept the rustic feel of this treasured photo
 This is where I pulled in the snowflake feel of the mood board
and little splash of colour ~ circa 1959
(and covered a stain)
I fussy cut and added the clock for this timeless photo
(if you look close the newsprint is the dictionary: Cheer and Love so fitting for my photo)

Here is the sketch by Laura Whitaker:
Stuck?! Sketches Dec 15
With this sketch, they are partnering with Scrap Around the World  and this gorgeous mood board to play along with!
SATW Mood Board
I choose the colour scheme (teal and red) along with the antique feel of the afghan in the middle
The delicate feel of the board is why I chose to use My Mind's Eye velum
and my first time playing along with SATW

I hope you find time to play along with these great challenges!

Thank you for stopping by
~ Danie ~
