Sketch Week-Using Gossamer Blue's September Kit

Holy moly, the weekend flew by!  I cannot say that I did much.  I mainly worked on this layout for the entire weekend.  I had part of it done fairly quick and then I hit a wall.

It's Sketch Week again over on Allison Davis' blog and I thought I would jump in again.  I loved the sketch (even though I changed it) and knew that I wanted to try a two page this time around. 

Here is my take on it.  Love these random shots of Sheldon.  I changed the photos from 6 to 4, because a few of my shots were too similar to tell a difference.

Plant Sprigs (I have looked and look and it's not in the Sil. store, so????)

Here is the sketch that I worked from.  This will be available for download on Scrapbook Generations website on Tuesday for FREE!  It will include the cuts sizes of the papers.

Here is my favorite part of the entire layout!  The Dear Lizzy file isn't really made for cutting.  So, I sketched it onto some of the new lightweight Chipboard from WorldWin Papers that cuts great in the Cameo!  I did an offset after I sketched it, to be able to cut it out. 

The plant springs that I cannot figure out where I got them from!
