Always Together – Sketchy Thursdays 9.15 sketch and ScrapFIT

Sketchy Thursdays has partnered up with ScrapFIT this week for their challenge! Simply combine sketch 9.15 from Sketchy Thursdays with the theme “Friendship” for twice the chance to win. Full details are on their blogs.

For my take on the sketch, I went with the fab Max and Mollie line by Nikki Sivils. I added some stitching to accentuate the sunrays that are part of the paper’s design, fussy cut a few details to layer (the sun and 2 of the flowers) and cut out the cutie Max and Mollie characters from the cut apart page. Then, all it needed was an MME (My Mind’s Eye) Stella and Rose journal spot, the packaging from some Prima bling and a little Cosmo Cricket sticker for the journaling area. 😀 The rhinestones are by Queen and Co. The journaling reads, “Just 13 mths apart, you two do everything together & are the best of friends. We were so worried you 2 would have trouble adjusting to being separated that we started Matthew in PreK early.” Here’s the layout I created based on the theme from ScrapFIT and sketch 9.15 from Sketchy Thursdays:

Adhesives:
