Here is the sketch for Opal 5a, done by my friend Cathryn. She did an amazing job!
And here is my page.
I really strayed from the sketch, but I love how the page turned out. I used a lot of mists and chalks to colour the sun and water, and used my SewEasy for most of the stitching. Thanks to my Summer ATC swap girls and Misty's blog posting on ScrapbookSteals today for a lot of the inspiration!
