Leisure suit

I've completed another Sketchy Thursday sketch after taking last week off because of school - I had a test and assignment due. 2 more weeks then I am done! Seriously, I can't wait!

This past weekend I got together with my sister to scrap and we had a blast!! She completed 4 double page layouts and one single page and I completed 2 single page layouts. I am such a slow scrapbooker!! The photos are of my niece McKenna who is 19 months old.

Here's the Sketchy Thursdays sketch:

And here's my take:

I love how this turned out and I still have enough pictures of her to do another page so it will eventually end up as a double! Miss McKenna is such a cutie!

The recipe - background paper is from Close to my Heart; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Cinder and Tea Rose; Canvas flower, button, flower & stem stickers and pink paper strip are all from Stampin' Up. The other flower paper strip and the miscellaneous butterfly button are from my sister's stash. The letters are cut using my cricut using the Learning Curve font & melon mambo paper from SU paper. The mini letters are from my stash. The title was placed on white paper from SU that was glimmer misted with the same 2 colours I used on the background paper and the edges were inked with SU melon mambo. The title background was cut using a nestability die in my cuttlebug.

Sketchy Thursdays - 3.03

Here is the 3.03 Sketchy Thursdays sketch:

And here is my take:

I am happy with how this turned out. I had finished another layout with the same sketch, but I wasn't happy with it so I started over with new pictures. Oh, and check out my assistant...

He obviously wanted attention because he was sitting right on top of both my layout and my paper trimmer.

If I keep playing along with Sketchy Thursday's I will have my wedding album and our London/Paris trip scrapped in no time!

The background paper is from Close to my heart, the striped square paper is from 7 gypsies "Barcelona", the film strip paper is from Jillibean soup, "blended beans and the camera's are also Jillibean, "Italian seasoning". The letters for the title are from Mind Mind's Eye "Lush" Collection and the 2010 was from the Echo Park Merry Christmas Collection.

Sketchy Thursday Challenge

I found the Sketchy Thursday blog from Darcy`s blog and have admired their sketches for a while now. This is my first time playing along with the Sketchy Thursday challenge. I loved this sketch and I used my favourite colour combo.

The background paper is from Karen Foster designs, the flower from Bazill and the heart jewel stickers are from white blossom. The black paper is American crafts, but I am unsure what the other papers are as I used scraps from my stash.

On a different note, can you believe it`s MARCH already?!?
