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'!
