Cousins *Scrap Africa* - Basic Grey Cappella

Hi friends, I hope you are doing well and creating beautiful projects.  It is time for the next sketch challenge on Scrap Africa.  I loved working with this sketch because it challenged me with it's two circles.  Here is my take on the sketch.

 Supply list:  Cardstock:  Bazzill; Printed papers: Basic Grey Cappella; Blooms: Flora Doodles; Buttefly: K&Co; Journal spot: Melissa Francis; Pearls: Melissa Francis; Rub on quote: Kaiser Scrapbook; Alpha: American Craft and Memory Makers tiny alpha; Other: Silhouette, Martha Stewart Punch, Prima Stencil and gesso.

I cut my two doily circles as well as the arrows with the Silhouette.  The page still didn't look quite right so I used the Prima stencil and gesso ( yes last :-) to stencil the bricks onto the background.  The photo of B and her two girl cousins were taken at a wedding in Cape Town in June this year.  They adore each other, it is sad that they see so little of each other.

Here is a close up:
...and another of the flower and pearl cluster.

Here is Evgenia's sketch:
