Car Seat Diva - Sketchy Thursdays 7.21

Playing along with Sketchy Thursdays again - I love their sketches!! Even if I can't complete a layout in time to post it on their blog, I always print the sketches out for future use.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my layout:

When I saw this sketch I knew right away that I was going to 1. flip it and 2. replace the strips of photos with patterned paper. I also knew I wanted to use this picture of my niece McKenna on her way to the cottage. I just love this pic! With her sunglasses, bracelet, barbie, drink, hat and of course her "sousie" she is all set! I've had this layout finished since Friday and finally was able to run out tonight and print the picture.

The details:

Paper - background Early Expresso from Stampin'Up, green from bazill and all patterned paper My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist". The banner is punched using the Pennant Parade punch from SU and strung along Jillibean Soup Twine.

Flowers: I've temporarily misplaced the packaging for the white flower, but will update when I find it. The pink centre flower is Prima "Delightful Day Col Glory".

Letters: Pink letters are from Bella Blvd "Simply Simona Peep" and the small brown letters are MME Lime Twist Fly a Kite "Genuine" Alphabet.

Thanks for peekin'!

Photo Bomb...Veronica Style!!

I'm back with another layout I started at Memories Manor . I believe it is based on a Page Maps sketch, but I gave my copy of the sketch away to a table mate at MM so I can't be 100% sure. Sam, Lori & I had no idea that Veronica had snuck into our picture!

Anyhow, this layout is of my scrappy friends and I and the tag contains hidden journalling. The journalling says: Scrappy Friends forever! We met on National Scrapbooking Day 2009 and have been getting together to scrap ever since! We always have a great time when we get together!


Paper: Background paper - early expresso from Stampin' Up; patterned paper Echo Park "A Walk in the Park".
Embellishments: miscellaneous from my stash. I made the pink rik rak flower and the bomb for the O is a clip art picture from the 'net.
