Sketch Layout for Bo Bunny! And a Sprinkle of Dusty Attic!

I made this layout with this cool sketch that was provided by Sketchy Thursdays.    The sketch called for 3 photos and I had these pic's I took of our pup when we first got her, I'm sure she thought her name was 'Zoe-No!' because that is what she heard all the time! lol!  Nothing was safe around her, I'm sure she has wrecked hundred of dollars worth of shoes, cloths, rugs, blankets......and **sigh** is still at it....hmmm, might be time for obedience school!)  This was my take on the sketch (I tend to take sketches I work with very literally and pretty much just follow the design without too much improvisation....all I really added was a little corset stitching between the strips of paper)  I used the soft and pretty Bo Bunny 'Country Garden Collection" for this one.... 
I also added one of the lovely new flourishes (Corner Flourish #2) by Dusty Attic.  While I normally add some sort of paint or inks to my chipboard pieces, this time I like the color tone the natural chipboard had so I just kept it unadorned. 

Here is the sketch I worked with from the Sketchy Thursdays blogspot....If you would like to try out this sketch and have a chance and a lovely Bo Bunny Prize be sure to link you layout to this link BO BUNNY SKETCHY THURSDAY~ You have until May 2nd to create your layout and link it!  Hope to see you there!  And hope everyone has an awesome long weekend! xx

I adore how you gapped the vertical papers to include the corset stitching as it adds so much impact and textural elements. Darling tribute to Zoe. I also appreciate how you follow artists' sketch designs to honor their creativity. Your hand work is just devine.

I like the stitched pieces of paper on the background and I love the center tip of the frame with the touch of lace.
