Here's a double challenge!

Wow I can't believe how many amazing challenge blogs there are!! Love it:)
I combined the Sketch challenge @ Sketchabilities and @  Scrapbookaholic BY Abby. Choose a National Day for the Month of March challenge #1.
I first went through my pictures and came across some really old photos that I have to admit are a little dark, but not as dark as they photograph. You know I just can't throw out those old photo's or choose not to dig into them too! I keep trying to work on all the new photos that I take and dig into those that have been stored in a photo box. So with that said here is the sketch!

Here is my take on the sketch!

I cut the bird freehand to match the paper! 

 I don't have the Large Cricut so I traced a large bowl to get my circle shape! I had made my own sewing  template before for another project and placed it around my circle and punched holes with my trusty thumb tack and mouse pad that I turned over! Instead of sewing I decided to just lightly follow the stitching holes with glitter glue! I really like the effect!

The Holiday I choose for the month was March 30 "Take a Walk in the Park!"  The picture was taken in the park at Myakkahatchee Creek. 

DCWV - The Green Stack
Glue Zots
Glitter Glue
Colorbok Vellum Quotes
Die Cuts with a View - Metal Accents
Hand made Yo-Yo Flower!

I'm happy with the results! I just wish we had Digital Cameras back then so you could see right away how your pictures turned out!
