Sketchy Thursdays 7.1

>> Friday, July 2, 2010

As usual, the ladies at Sketchy Thursdays have put together another great sketch for this week and I couldn't resist putting together a layout based on it.
Actually,I am kind of surprised at myself that I felt the need to play along this week since I really do not like doing double page layouts. I am never happy with how they turn out but I decided to stretch myself (was that a pun?) and resist the urge to adjust the sketch to a single page.

SUPPLIES
October Afternoon patterned paper, flash card
Bazzill cardstock
American Crafts thickers
Pebbles Inc. market tag
Making Memories ribbon
Offray ribbon
Misc. rick rack, vintage label stickers,
thread, dimensional sticker


I absolutely love the Fly a Kit line from October Afternoon that I used for this one. It was hard to bring myself to actually cut into it since my natural tendency is to hoard the supplies that I really love.


I also made a couple
of my own embellishments for this layout - the "100% organically grown" dimensional sticker and the corrugated alphas (cut from a Starbuck's coffee sleeve); and my sister made the adorable strawberry topped pins.
