SOS April Blend-a-Sketch Plus - Challenge -"Beautiful Friends"

Hello Scrappy Friends-  It is time for our Blend-a-Sketch Challenge over at the 

This month's challenge is to blend 2 sketches below, 
and add either  "Polka Dots" or "Enamel Dots" 

Here is how I blended the sketches - I used 3 photos, as in the Sketch on the LEFT, and Circles and the basic layout - (tweaked a bit,) from the layout on the RIGHT.

I used photos from a very special trip into NYC, with my friends Melodie and Kimberly who were visiting from out of state, on Thanksgiving Weekend before their cruise, 
and my friend Marianne from NJ -who kindly drove us into the city that night.   
We had such a fun time, and the play was just “Beautiful!”

As you can see here - not only did I add black, red and yellow enamel dots, I added some red Polka Dot paper Washi Tape, and I used BoBunny's "Double Dot" Yellow Cardstock for the Polka Dot Challenge too!

Okay, so we didn't ride in a Taxi - as Marianne was our wonderful driver, but this sticker and that paper were just so adorable, I had to use them - and who doesn't think of a Yellow Taxi when you think about NYC?!!  (Plus the yellow went perfectly with the Playbill and Billboard colors too!)

Love these ladies - and blessed to call them my friends!

Yup, that is more black and grey Polka Dot paper that I had in my scrap paper bin. It was perfect for my hidden journaling tag - and that little taxi sticker is just so cute!!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you give our Blend-a-Sketch Challenge a try, and invite you to join us this month over at the Scrap Our Stash Blog.
