{Sketch Saturday Challenge #46 & Cute Card Thursday #56}
I promised Marko's Mom that I would let them have a DVD with the photo shoot I took of Marko when he was only 11 days old. Marko, being such a precious and beautiful little baby boy, inspired me to decorate and embellish the DVD holder with his photo shoot's DVD .
Sketch no.46 over at Sketch Saturday, got me going with the layout for the front of DVD. Of course all the cardstock are once again from my favourite Basic Grey ranges. The fancy journaling squares were stamped with Making Memories acrylic stamps. The chipboard I received from Tracy as encouragement for my BOM challenge. The paper flowers were created with a Fold-it Swirls template from Paper Pizazz. The rest of the embellishments are from stash. Cute Card Thursday's challenge this week is Flower Fantasy and seeing that I have created my own flowers here I have also entered it for the CCTC challenge.

We are commemorating my late sister, Hiletje's wedding anniversary tomorrow, with her husband Jens and we will be seeing Marko's family and hopefully hand them this DVD holder.
Its quite satisfying covering and decorating a DVD holder and making it a bit more special. Thanks again for taking some time out to pop in here. Wishing you all a wonderful and hopefully more relaxed weekend than Easter weekend.
