PageMaps' BasicGrey Capture Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone. Here is my entry to the PageMaps' Basic Grey Capture sketch challenge. The pictures are of me and my daughter. I can count on one hand the number of layouts I have created that feature me. When Sam asked what I wanted for Mother's Day this year, I told her I wanted pictures of us. With her schedule and the weather, we didn't get around to it until June. I used Bobunny's 'Prairie Chic' paper line along with some of their Double Dot cardstock. The splatters were made using Faded Jeans and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I dabbed the inks on my craft mat and with a wet brush I picked up some of the color and then flicked it on the cardstock. Didn't completely clean my brushes, so some of the perfect pearls that I used last, were transferred to the splatters!! I embossed some script on to parts of the pattern paper, using a stamp from Hero Arts. The denim and cardstock spiral flowers were hand cut. The denim came from an old pair of jeans of Sam's. I also cut out a few circles and popped them up on the pattern paper. Some stitching, pearls and of course bling, completed the layout. Below is a copy of the sketch and some close ups. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
