Stuck on U sketches

While most of the ladies on this design team at Stuck on U sketches are scrapping mid winter layouts, I'm sitting here sweltering with mid 30s centigrade temperatures. That is nearly 100 on the farenheit scale!
So, I've used a Cosmo Cricket paper from my Counterfeit Kit, plus a packet of Kaisercraft Collectables named Tropical Punch.

That took me to this photo, taken on a holiday last year.
I've matted on old bookpaper first then run a strip of floral washi tape underneath the photo.
Next I started layering the collectables and used pop dots for height on some items.
The quote and the word, BLISS sum up that holiday.

We are having sleet right now -- 100 degrees sounds pretty good to me! I hate to be cold! Sweltering hots not great either - but brrrr,...I'm cold.
Looks like a terrific holiday! Love the way you translated the sketch, (to a warmer scene!) and gave it dimension.

Fabulous take on the sketch!! I must say that I am a bit jealous of the weather there, it's well below freezing her in north west Texas today and I would gladly trade that for some nice HOT weather!!!
