Hello, hello! Good Thursday morning to you. I hope you all had a good Christmas. Since we have been on Christmas break, I am having a hard time keeping up with what day of the week it is!
I do know that today is my day to be featured over at Scrap Our Stash with my take on the December Blend - A - Sketch challenge. Along with blending the two sketches, we have an additional challenge to use 3 or more of the same kind of embellishment. Here's a look at the sketches:
For my layout, I used the 2 square photos and title placement from the first sketch. From the second sketch, I used the photo placement, layers behind the photos, circles, and the journaling placement. For the added challenge of using 3 or more of the same embellishment, I have used 3 die cut hearts, 3 puffy hearts, and three stamped word phrases.
Here are a couple of close-ups of my title and embellishment clusters:
I did some splatters across my layout. I'm not a fan of the spray mist that I used, but looking at it now it doesn't look so bad!
These photos are of Miss Ada sneaking a taste of some chocolate chip cookie dough on the 4th of July. She loves to help me bake cookies and the dough was just looking too tempting!
I didn't really mean to make a red, white, and blue layout...I guess I was just thinking about it being on the 4th of July when I was picking out the papers. I used some old papers from my stash - My Mind's Eye - Confetti - collection from 2007. I love this collection and it was hard to cut into the papers, but I am so glad that I did! I love the way this layout turned out!
Head on over to Scrap Our Stash for more design team inspiration. We would love to see you playing along with us!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have wonderful day!
