Sketchy Thursdays September Guest Design Team Challenge

>> Thursday, August 19, 2010

Well, my temporary lull lasted a bit longer than I had anticipated due to having to wait almost three weeks for the installation of our internet services.  Oh well, it was probably better that I didn't have the distraction of my blog and Crop Chocolate to prevent me from actually unpacking.  I am happy to announce that we are safely and happily installed in our new home; most of the boxes are unpacked and hopefully I only have to wait another week or so until the rest of my new furniture gets delivered.  And who knows, maybe someday I'll even get around to hanging some pictures on the wall.  In the meantime, I am just happy to be done with the heavy lifting and back to fun things, like scrapbooking.

I am really thankful that my internet was finally hooked up this morning so that I can post my layout for the Sketchy Thursdays September Guest Design Team Challenge.

I wasn't actually going to make a layout based on this sketch because, honestly, when I first saw it I really, really disliked it.  I guess you can say I am not a circle scrapper.  But after a particularly long day of unpacking I felt like I needed to do something creative or I was going to snap, so I sat down (on the floor) in my (completely disorganized) scraproom and decided to go for it.  And after I started playing with a photo and pretty papers I discovered that I actually *love* this sketch. 

Cosmo Cricket patterned paper
Recollections kraft paper, rhinestones
