Snapshot of You.....and a Sketch!

Hi there's how's it going so far?

I'm having a busy one, lots of creative stuff I'm trying to get done, but just enough time to hop on here.

I'm sort of killing two birds with one stone today.

First up.......a continuation of my latest Two Scrapbook Friends DT reveal using Echo Parks 'Today's Story.


Second, it happens to be my turn for this weeks Sketch Challenge over on the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum, so there'll be a little 'sketchy goodness' at the end of my post.

So, for today's layout I used the 12"x12" sleeve included in the above pack, which gives you the opportunity to create a 'regular' type of scrapbook page.  That's the beauty of this kit.......it really does provide a nice variety of layout options.

Here's today's page:


I loved this simple little shot of my daughter as we were dining out one night, and the included sticker sheet provided the perfect title!


The solitary 12"x12" sheet of patterned paper I had remaining in the kit, together with a few scraps sort of determined the pastel colour scheme, so I continued with the elegant 'chintzy' style........doilies and crochet........what more can I say?!



The birdcage die fits in quite nicely with that, and the fact that it was a yard sale bargain makes it all the more sweet.



Finally, the wide vertical strip was actually the starting point for this page, however I decided to divide it into two using my Mini 8 punch and create the 'bracket' edge.  Another sticker fits nicely here.


Well that's about it for this page but I did promise a sketch, so killing two birds with one stone and all that, here's my sketch taken from today's layout.





I hope you can use it and maybe even join in with this weeks challenge over on the Forum.

Have a great day and I'll see you Friday,
Jayne.x.
