It's Monday and that means ...

... another Nuts About Sketches reveal!

This week was another two-page sketch; Shawn's 2-pagers are always awesome. This week though, I used just one side because I wanted to focus on a particular photo. Here's sketch #215:

... and here's my sketch, using (and turning) just the right side:

This was granddaughter Anna's first year with T-ball (she's four) and she was thrilled about having a uniform to wear. According to her mama, she mostly chased butterflies in the field, threw the ball wherever, and ran from first to third base "to save time". (I added a tag with hidden journaling after I took this shot, and all of that is on there so we can embarrass her when she's a teenager) It's fitting that her team is the "Rockhounds", since her paternal great-grandfather is a geologist. I used my last Burlap & Buttercups kit for this one; so sad that B & B is gone but wishing Rachel all the best.

This layout also fit the May 17 challenge on the Scraptastic Club blog to use my stash, along with flowers, buttons and brads. I used two floral embellies with a big brad in the center of one and a button in the other.

Are you scrapping on this Memorial Day? I finished a layout for a Telephone Scraplift challenge, using the Faded Jeans kit from Scraptastic Kit Club; can't show the entire layout yet, but here's a peek:

... and here's an invitation to the upcoming Birthday Bash 3.0 at Cookin' Up Creations. We had a major hardware crash last month that took out the entire forum, but we're back and better than ever! Come celebrate with us ....
