Together Time- Stuck? Sketch Challenge

I am here to show you my very 1st layout EVER for a Stuck? Sketch Challenge. Fellow A2Z DT Bel Wood entered the challenge and I just loved her take on the sketch sooo much I had to do one as well.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I just love this photo (but hey, don't I say that about all of them lol ) Its of my hubby and our 3 girls on a beach in Port Denison, W.A. Its 'our' spot. We live a short drive from this town and when we just want a morning off the farm this is where we go to.

For the background I took a My Mind Eye paper and painted on (in a shape of L) Shimmerz Paints Dazzelerz( Gummy Berry Blue). Then on top of that Shimmerz Bling, (Under the sea), which gives it a glitter look. Once dried I painted over that with Shimmerz, (Sunny) .Once the L was finished I lightly painted over the page using the colours sunny and under the sea. Then with a Prima Spot Stamp i stamped heavy in the L area and lightly over the page.

Now for the embellishments. The flowers are Prima, D'Lish Scraps and Mad About Scrappin (as is the Doily) The Flair is Flutterbys

The Frame and Banner's are A2Z. The frame was gessoed and then painted with Shimmerz (Aqua Marine) and then heat dry to get that bumpy texture look. The Banners where gessoed with Gelatos on top. While still wet I stamped over them with the Prima spot Stamp. The paper is from Echo Park. The word Time is from Prima, painted with Shimmerz (sunny).

Here is the sketch:
