Be the Light of the World!

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful Tuesday!  We are getting some much needed rain today, so I had a perfect evening to scrap!!! YAY!  So far this year, I have stuck to my NY resolution of trying a new scrapbook challenge each month this year! But I always seem to wait until the last  minute - Yikes!

♥  ♥  

This month I found an amazing sketch challenge blog called  Let's Get Sketchy!



 They actually have FOUR sketches each month and I absolutely loved week 4's sketch:


♥  ♥  

And I couldn't decide on just one, so I am combining the sketch with this month's challenge at the awesome Pixels and Paper Challenge blog:

This month's CRITERIA is distressing in some form:


♥  ♥  

So without further ado, here is my layout:


With some close-ups:



I really loved the simple sketch and was instantly inspired by a photo that I took of Anne a couple of years ago.  I also wanted to use some of my new Bo Bunny paper.  And I totally loved distressing my edges for this layout, too!

Thank you, Lets Get Sketchy and Pixels and Paper for the wonderful inspiration to help me stick to my NY's resolution!

And thank YOU for stopping by my blog today!  Hugs to you!
