Simple Sketches #22, Reflections

Hello, Everyone!

I've the latest and greatest sketch from Simple Sketches!  This is a sweet sketch.  To enter the challenge, click on the sketch to visit our home blog.

I didn't use the stitching suggestion on my sketch, as my sewing machine is currently traveling to another country!  I did keep the three areas of elements the same, but I did twist and shift the sketch.  The hearts didn't make it into my post either.  

I've been freezing my butt off and I saw the beachy mood board for Scrap Around the World.  After going through 500 vacation pictures, I decided on these three.  Everyone played on the beach and in the ocean, but I played with my camera (also on the beach).  I was working, not on my tan, but on my reflections.  I captured the sunrise and two of my nieces.  And I didn't use any embarrassing photos.  

Here is the mood board for Scrap Around the World.  As I said, "BEACH!"  I don't think I've been warm since November!  I also used white flowers and tried to keep my colors soft and dreamy.  

The vintage book pages and buttons are from the Zeus and Zoe Etsy shop.  The two images on the book pages are of old swimsuits.
