Happy Diwali

Hi Friends, I know it is not Diwali yet. But I wanted to create a LO using pictures of Shikha (My friend's daughter)- from last year's Diwali Celebration.

 1) As soon as I saw the Sketchy Thursday 6-23 Sketch, I knew these pictures were perfect for that layout.

2) I am entering this LO in the My Unity Place - Scrapbook challenge - To use Banners on your page.

3) I am also submitting this LO for Nichol Magouirk's challenge on Two Peas in a Bucket - to Use paint/ink/etc. to customize your own embellishments on your next layout!

These are the pictures of my friend's daughter Shikha - when she was all dressed up for the last year Diwali Festival. I had to create a LO with these pictures.

I used the Happy Banner image from the June 2009 Unity KOTM - Perfect in Every Way for the title along with some American Crafts Thickers. I colored the banner image with some copic markers to keep it within my color theme.

The border at the bottom is Tim Holtz Grunge board that I cut with the edgers die and then inked it with some Ranger Acrylic Paint. I also colored the brads with copic markers to get a matching color for my LO.

The layout is simple, but I liked how it turned out. Here is the Sketchy Thursday sketch,
