Sisters and Friends – DT layout for Let’s Capture These Sketches

I abreviated the title for the post. My layout is actually titled Sisters by Marriage, Friends by Choice.

For my take on sketch #102 on Let’s Capture These Sketches, I went with the gorgeous Vintage Blue papers by Glitz. It was my first time working with their papers…and I am in LOVE! Gorgeous prints, perfect weight and did I mention GORGEOUS?!! 🙂

There is also a mini challenge on Scrapbookers Anonymous to use a long title, so I decided to combine that challenge with my dt work for lcts. Here’s what I came up with:

Just Yawning Layout – Sketchy Thursdays and Get Picky entries

Wow! So many wonderful challenges available this month! There seems to be something for everyone! For this layout, I decided to combine some of them. I started with the awesome 8.4 sketch from Sketchy Thursdays, then added the inspiration challenge from Get Picky, then since I was going with Sassafras papers and embellies, I could also throw in their August challenge criteria…3 or more different alphas. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials: Sassafras Mix and Mend Handmade Hobnob paper
Sassafras Mix and Mend journaling Tags
Sassafras Mix and Mend Sweet Treats (diecut stickers)
Sassafras Kelly Green Glitter Alpha stickers
Sassafras Chocolate Glitter Alpha stickers
Sassafras Yellow Paper Alpha stickers
Sassafras Blue In a Stitch Blossom
Twine from the Twinery
Webster’s Pages storytellers alpha sticker (just the question mark)

This is the Sketchy Thursdays sketch:
