Love & Happiness – dt layout for Sketchabilities sketch #99

***(HINT HINT)READ TO THE END***I’m so excited to share my first layout as part of the Sketchabilities team! I’m honored to be working with such talented crafters! Please be sure to stop by the Sketchabilities challenge blog to see all the fabulous examples they’ve created for sketch #99. 😀

For my page I just HAD to use Webster’s Pages. I think everyone has their favorite manu’s and their standbys. For me, WP is my go to manu. Whether I’m looking for their gorgeous classic papers, a soft pattern or a bold one, I’m sure to find just the right combination with their collections. I have to admit though, I’m totally guilty of HOARDING my WP. They’re so beautiful that sometimes it’s really hard to make myself USE them, cut into them, layer and not just admire them. lol Here’s what I came up with for sketch #99 using a combination of WP’s Palm Beach and Everyday Poetry:

The incredible sketch I got to work with:

Materials:

Webster’s Pages papers, sparklers, cameo, frame, journaling card, fabric ticket and flower
October Afternoon stickers and flower sack bits
Freckled Fawn polaroid frames
Prima wood pieces
Tim Holtz distress stains, paints and washi tape
jute
gesso
acrylic paint
Pitt big brush pen
doily
sizzix die cut flourish

Buried Treasure – Layout for Dusty Attic’s June Challenge

Though I’ve known for quite some time that Dusty Attic runs monthly challenges, this is my first time playing along there.

We recently went on our first family vacation…it was a weekend at the beach at the end of March. Most of the kids had never been to the beach before and we all had a great time. 😀 Christian was in heaven…though we went at a less than ideal time of year to enter the water, he kept trying to run right in…shoes and all! 😀 For my take on the June sketch, I went with pics of him after he’d buried himself in the sand.

WP trim (Spring Market)
WP Fabric ribbon (Palm Beach)
