You Rock! - Stuck?! Dec 1st reveal

Hello everyone :), this is my 2nd post today (for my Scrap Africa reveal post, please click HERE), with my take on Stuck?! Sketches Dec 1st reveal.
Here's the sketch:
Usually, I don't scrap more than 2 photos at the most. this time I decided to challenge myself and used 4 photos of my oldest:
This time I decided to go on a more clean design, no messy mixed media style :).
For my lo I used some DCWV pp, some scraps from Echo Park, Simple Stories and Webster's Pages. I also used StudioFourteen40' flair buttons.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

We would LOVE to see your takes on this sketch, and don't forget Stuck?! is having a GDT call, so if you're interested, put GDT after your name :).

Warm and cosy

We have a new sketch for you at Scrap Africa, sketch #40:
Isn't it just an awesome sketch?
Here's my take on this sketch:
I used products from 7 Dots, Thoughts Keeper collection by the talented Olda Heldwein, that I got as a giveaway, thank you Tusia Lech for your generousity!
I used 12x12 pp no. 2, and papers from the 6x6 pad, stamps and stickers - all from that fab collection. and I would like to enter it to 7 Dots' challenge, which is 'Warm and Cosy, just like my youngest's photo, taken when he was just a baby. Here's the inspiration circle from the challenge:

I also used modeling paste with some Perfect Pearls over The Crafter's Workshop stencil, and some modeling paste over a doily stencil. 
To go along with the warm and cosy theme, I also adhered felt flowers, made with Die-Namics dies. StudioFourteen40' flairs, splatters of mists, dew drops, micro beads, large rhinestones, sequins and die-cut doily - and my lo is finished.
There's a lot of 3-D in this lo, so it also goes fot the 3-D challenge, exercise #2 at the Mixed Media Place.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Inspired by the sea

Case file # 148 is up at CSI, with gorgeous layouts by the Guest Designers and the DT. Here's case file #148:
And this is my take on it:
My clues to solve the case were:
Scheme - all colors are here. with the gorgeous 7 Dots Studio papers, it was so easy to match the papers with the right colors.
Evidence - flowers, branches, watercolors, tags, strings, pen work.
Testimony - I love the seaside very much. it calms down, inspire and I can spend hours by the sea. so this is what my journaling is all about. I wrote is in a kind of a recipe and used the IW inspiring.
I used the sketch and theme of this month's challenge at Once Upon A... Sketch:
I was also inspired by the current challenge at Scrap Around The World, with this beautiful inspiration moodboard:
I was inspired by the flowers photo, with some of the colors (yellow, pink, pale green and cream).
All pp, stickers and stamps are from 7 Dots Studio. Chipboard is from Creative Embellishments and the flairs are Studio40Fourteen's.
Here are some close ups on the details:
