SIT #65

Welcome to our first Sketches in Thyme sketch for 2012, specifically Challenge #65!
I just couldn't LOVE the CAS design of this sketch, with the potential to grow and build upon, any more!  Delish!  Here's what I came up with.
I started this layout by using a polka dot stencil to paint little spots of white over that gorgeous, texty, kraft base.  I then added three strips of patterned paper, cut as though they were banners, vertically, to pull in additional color...
tucked a hot pink, journaling card, which had been distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, under the far right strip; and used that card to journal, Just a sweet pic of another, little accident, while BJ was in charge none-the-less.  That literally never happens!  Your accidents always seem to occur on my watch.  Anyway, Daddy was trying to get things cleaned up, when I walked around the corner and found this.  Too cute!
The photograph was matted with Whisper White cardstock and used to anchor my "accidents happen" title, which was made from Blueberry, Scratch 'n Sniff letters and orange, mini alphas.
A "Best of Times" tab...
and a few, hand cut, from lace cardstock, hot pink doilies, embellished with color-coordinating buttons, laced with white string, complete the design.
Color inspiration for this layout came from The Color Room's Palette #91: {Sun Room}.
Now, it's your turn!  You have until the close of the month, on Tuesday, January 31, 2012, to link up your takes over in the right hand column of the Sketches in Thyme Blog.  Please be sure to use the challenge link above to see what the rest of Team A, as well as our talented Guest Mavens, Karen and Rita, have cooked up with the sketch and to find out what you're playing for this month.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a truly wonderful day!

I don't think I've ever mentioned it before, but I LOVE your handwriting!!! You should offer it to a font company and sell it!! Or design for a stamp company to create a line of handwritten sentiments/quotes(pitch the idea to Dawn maybe). Seriously! Oh, and your layout is too darn cute!
