My Creative Sketches - October Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

My Creative Sketches have another stunning sketch to be creative with for October - details can be found 'HERE'.  Above is my interpretation of the October Sketch.  Over on the My Creative Sketch blog you can find some amazing inspiration from the design team, as well as entries, just gorgeous!

In my layout I used an embossed cardstock that has been in my stash since 'forever'.  There is no brand, but it really has amazing, beautiful detail.  Lots of Cheery Lynn Designs dies, and I am Roses flowers (which I re-coloured to match the layout). I also included Prima's Say it in Crystals, from a prize I won in a blog hop with My Creative Sketches not too long ago. 
The photograph is me as a child (priceless look really lol).  I was sitting on my Grandmothers front porch, and had scattered rocks and sand all over it - I guess this is the 'Uh Oh, I'm sprung' look?
...and a few close up photographs of all the flowers, and die-cuts.
Thanks for visiting...
Sandie
