I have been trying hard to produce a layout a week since I started scrapping again recently. Once again with the help of Sketchy Thursdays I have whipped up a page that I L-O-V-E!
As my scrappy friends all know my crusade for 2011 & is to dig into those scraps & leftovers in my scrap room to free up some much needed space. So this is exactly what I aim to do with every page I create. This layout I went all out & used up some of those left over rub-ons that I just can't stand anymore. Not because they aren't nice but simply frustrate me to the heavens to use. I also incorporated the strips I trimmed from my main patterned paper to make the flower on the left hand side of the picture & cut out the green panel of card stock from behind the patterned paper to use above. Talk about making your scrap items S-T-R-E-T-C-H.
And... Here is what I came up with.
This is a picture of my brother & his daughter on vacation. The sketch I used was for the April GDT spot at Sketchy Thursdays & the only added specification was to incorporate spring colours into the page. Nothing screams spring to me more than green & pink. Not a conventional colour combo for me so I really enjoyed working with these colours.
