The August sketches at My Sketch World went "live" on Monday. I paired the layout sketch with the Crate Paper Portrait Collection and some photos of granddaughter Anna feeding leaves to the giraffes at the zoo:
I used some papers from Scrap Within Reach for my version of the card sketch:
I created this layout for a "Blue Plate Special" challenge that I presented at Cookin' Up Creations. It's a simplified scraplift of my "Take Time to Smell the Flower" layout from last week, which in turn was based on a sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches. Everything except the rhinestones came from the Burlap & Buttercups June kit.
I signed up for the August sketch class at Inspired 2 Scrap, and it's great fun! Stacey designed all the sketches to include only 4 x 6 photos, so we can use our pictures "as is" or make changes to accommodate our preferences. I used The Sweet Peach Crop Shop's July Juicy kit, including papers by October Afternoon (that's what I used to cut those cute round "embellishments), Crate Paper and Cosmo Cricket. I added the polka dot paper from my stash.
This is another Sassy Lil' Sketches sketch; the papers are Echo Park For the Record. The photo includes my husband's maternal grandparents (on the right) when they were "courting". The photo was taken in about 1914 at a local swimming lake.
I have a double layout in progress for the I2S class that I started at last night's crop at Scrap That Moment, our local scrapbooking store, We have a wedding reception to attend this evening so I'm not sure how much scrap time I'll get, but hey -- there's always tomorrow, right? Thanks for stopping by; have a great weekend!
