Sketch Challenge at Ruby Rock-it (and my reveal!)

I'm up on the Ruby Rock-it today! This week we are playing along a sketch challenge that Amanda posted on Sunday. You can see her post: HERE.  We were asked to create a project using her sketches that she created using the NEW Nostalgia Collection (LOVE THIS!), and you know how much I love sketches!  I first chose the layout sketch:

and this is what I came up with:

Love this picture of my niece. She is a budding actress in Toronto, and really LOVES it! She even has a seasame street gig soon! (thanks to my friend Deanna for the photo too!)  Here are a few close ups of the layout:

I am in LOVE with banner stickers that Ruby Rock-it creates! So super cute! And the cute little flowers are to die for! I seriously couldn't stop feeling them (crazy, I know!)

 Another border sticker at the top that I shortened, and tied the PAPER twine! Yes, you heard me PAPER twine! ITS AWESOME. You can manipulate and its thick BUT workable! Chipboard stores, that are part of the FUNDAMENTALS line (you are going to LOVE these!) Seriously, Ruby Rock-it has BLOWN it out of the park with this collection! It is my all time favorite collection, and so super versatile, you will be seeing lots more of this line from me soon!

The next project I used this sketch:

And instead of making a card, I created a mini clipboard photo frame, where you can change the picture any time you want! Easy Peasy!

Here is the project with a picture:

And without:

Love how this turned out!.... Guess what! You have a chance to win the entire collection of NOSTALGIA!  All you have to do is play along and link to one of the posts on the Ruby Rock-it blog, from this past week! Trust me, you are going to want to get on this, because this collection is AMAZING (yes I know I am going on, and on... and on about it, but it is awesome!)

On a final note, I am so missing the warm weather, and hilly mountains of New Zealand! The holiday went by too fast... so I leave you with this photo I took while we were there:

Crazy beautiful, right?
