Love You

A layout I made for the March challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch, with this awesome sketch:
The journaling criteria for this challenge is a wonderful quote:
The photo is of my boys, building sand castle, on a perfect day at the beach about 2 years ago. I used a Kaisercraft's rub-on for the saying, and nearby wrote about life's little pleasures. Sometimes we just need to remember to simply enjoy these little moments in life.
My inspiration for the palette was the color challenge at ScrapFriends:
I used Prima pp, stamps, flowers, chalk ink and sugar dots. the background was created using layers upon layers of gesso, mists, distress stain, stamping and masking. I really love how it turned out. I also used Creative Ebmellishments' flourish chipboard, painted roughly with gesso, and doilies cut with Cheery Lynn' die. The frame was made with Nestabilities' die.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.
יש  משהו בשילוב הצבעים של גווני כחול עם גווני חום, ונגיעות של לבן וקרם, שפשוט כובש אותי פעם אחר פעם. אולי כי הוא שילוב הצבעים הטבעי של חוף הים. אז ברור שלא יכולתי להתעלם מאתגר הצבעים הזה, ושילבתי אותו עם אתגר הסקיצה והג'ורנלינג של OUAS. אנחנו חיים רק פעם אחת, ואם נחיה את חיינו כדבעי, מספיקה גם פעם אחת. התמונה הזו, של הבנים בונים ארמון בחול, צולמה ביום קסום לפני כשנתיים. סתם יום של חופשה בחוף הים, עם הנאות קטנות של החיים.
הפעם 'התעצלתי' ולא הכנתי פרחים בעצמי, אלא השתמשתי בפרחים המוכנים של פרימה. גם הדפים המדוגמים הם של פרימה. הרקע הורכב מהרבה שכבות של ג'סו, מיסטים, distress stain, החתמות ומסיכה. הסלסולים הם למעשה צ'יפבורד אחד שנחתך לשניים, וצבעתי אותו צביעה לא אחידה בג'סו, כך שניתן עדיין לראות את הצבע החום המקורי של הצ'יפבורד.  ה'קרעים' עם השוליים המפונצ'צ'ים, מוסיפים למראה הוינטאג'י.

Libeeti your scrapping is just going from strength to strength each time a see a layout there is a new little touch or something and you are just building layer upon layer and I am loving it. I love the colours that you have used for this one and the way you interpreted the sketch. Lovely photo and a wonderful sentiment. We do need to remember that.
