On Sunday I was a scrapping machine! I made 3 layouts in one afternoon, which is unheard of for me… I am usually such a slow scrapper! I decided to try a few sketches, which is something I haven’t tried in a long time, but I really had a lot of fun, and definitely see more sketches in my future! The first one is not from a sketch. I had this record paper that I was dying to use, and when we went to the Chickenburger for Mothers’ Day, I knew I’d get my chance with pics from the event.

I didn’t want to cover much of the paper, so I kept it pretty simple. I used paper from the Mod Retro stack by Die Cuts with a View. I cut out the little phrase embellies from one of the papers in the stack and used border punches to make strips of other papers from the stack. I added a few chipboard circles and a fabric “happy” sticker from my stash (Dollar Store stuff), and a few journalling strips. The layout is simple, but I fussed with the placement of all the elements forever!

My second layout was made using the Get Picky May Challenge #8, which you can find here. I love that the sketch used negative space and I had 3 pics left to scrap of the mothers day outing, so I gave it a go and here’s what I came up with:
|Good Times (from Get Sketchy May Challenge #8)|
I started with a piece of textured cardstock from the American Crafts Neutrals pack. I misted it with SWAK, Tattered Leather, and Jingle Bells Glimmer Mist. I cut the strips (from the Mod-Retro stack by DCWV) in various widths and outlined them in different widths of markers. Layered it all together and threw on a bunch of Basic Grey Bloomers (from a few different collections). Then I sewed on some Stampin Up! buttons using black embroidery floss.

I have one more to post, but I have to go for now! Thanks for stopping by!
