Sisters and a doily

I created this layout for 2 challenges firstly  #2 at Scrap our stash (the  Birthday stash a thon) is to create a new layout with a doily or cake liner and secondly I  used the sketch at Scrap Africa. 

I have misted my doily and also added borders made with the MS doily lace punch.

The photos show me having fun with my sister Dawn on her last visit to SA.
For some reason my inking of the gesso around the edge of the layout shows up as rather messy as I dusted it with perfect pearls and the shimmer seems to blur on the photo.

Never the less , I hope you can see its good points.

  14. Great page Wendy and super,fun photo's of you and your sis! Love the punched borders and those cute little tickets...the title chippie is lovely too! If I may give a little bit of advice with regards to taking photo's, especially of white background layouts...is always best to take them outside, not in direct sunlight and against a darker background scene...as it then shows up the white page nicely and you also get a better clarity on the gesso, mists and shimmers used...I always also use prestick to keep it in place. ;-) Thanks so much for playing along with our sketch challenge at Scrap Africa...we really do appreciate your support! ;-)
