Inkspirations Challenge Guest Designer

Hi everyone.  This week I am very, very excited to be part of Keesh's amazing Design Team!  :)

This week Keesh has a sketch challenge for you to try:-

You can find all the DT's wonderful inspiration pieces & play along here.

Here is my take on the sketch:-

I have squished it up into a square shape & made a little presentation folder to hold some Deb photos & a DVD with video footage.

I have inked the main panel with Versamark ink & then clear embossed, giving a lovely shiny, raised finish.  The DVD (which has a "printable" surface) has been inked with StazOn with the same SU So Swirly Wheel.  The folder is held shut by a ribbon tie.

The photo & black mat have been cut with CM circle patterns & the scallop circle has been created & cut with my Robo.

You can check out the Design Team's work here:-

Thanks for inviting me to join the team Keesh!  :)

This is so beautiful. It is such a wonderful way to present cherished memories. I hope I can make something equally as lovely when my children are older.

LOVE this idea Helen. What a brilliant way to present photos of a special event...I can just see wedding, engagement, milestone b'days, new baby, etc etc. If they're not in an album at least they're all together on a disc :)
