Sketches In Thyme #185

Hi guys! We have made it to Thursday - one day closer to the weekend! This has seemed like a long week to me - probably because I've had a sick boy home from school for the majority of it.

Today is my day to be featured over on the Sketches In Thyme blog. This week we are working with a fantastic double page sketch from the talented Brenda Ragsdale.

I just love Brenda's sketches! They are so easy to work with. I just had a hard time deciding what photos I wanted to scrap. I thought about 4th of July photos with a star, or birthday layouts of my kids from when they were little, using a star or circle. So many possibilities with this great sketch! Finally I decided to go with the heart and scrap these photos of me and my hubby at our 25th anniversary party.

I used what few sheets of Simple Stories' - The Story Of Us - collection, and embellished it with silver sequins, silver glitter hearts and tape, and the 25 years is actually metallic silver - you just can't tell it in the photo. Of course I had to go heavy on the silver since it was our silver anniversary!

Be sure to check out the Sketches In Thyme blog  for this sketch and the first two sketches of the month. If you play along and link up over on the blog, you will be entered for a chance to win this fun prize:

Wouldn't that be a fun prize to play with?!
