ATDML 'sketch it' challenge-Babies

I've noticed that a few of the bloggers I visit took part in the ATDML Weekend Cyber Crop.......sadly I didn't have time......but have popped over to check out the gallery.......and last night I had time to take part in the 'sketch it' challenge. I just couldn't resist this lovely sketch.

I've used it to document Little A's love of baby dolls........she's loved them since she was a few months old.......and always heads straight for any.......in fact, when she came round yesterday her first words were "where's the baby?".........so no surprise that she quickly grabbed one that was almost as big as her at the summer fair last year at her great-nan's care home.
I love that scrapbooking can open up new colour ideas to me.....I'd never have thought of using these 2 greens together.......but came across the bottom sheet when looking through my stash for something that would match the photo.....and,hey presto,I think they work perfectly together.

That doll is almost as big as Little A. I think the green colors really enhance the layout.

Nice sketch, and you did a great job with it. Clara loved baby dolls, too! I think it's a great trait.

She sounds like my kind of girl! Baby dolls were always a favourite with me too.

A really lovely interpretation of the sketch - the paper with the birds on is beautiful. I haven't seen it before
