Elle's 3.21 Sketch

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Hey, y'all!  We're just hanging out, doing some cleaning and clearing out today.  But I wanted to quick pop in to share a fun page of my tan babies.  Enjoy!
I started this layout by piecing together the yellow sun; die-cut, scalloped, black "today"; and turquoise, star, patterned papers and machine stitching, with black-threaded, straight stitches around the edges of the top piece, after folding a doily, which was later dressed up with a vintage Flatback, "Today" tag, and a red button, laced with white string, over its top edge, and, with black-threaded, zig-zag stitches, between the connections of the papers.
A handful of pennants were then tucked under the scalloped edge and stamped, in Jet Black ink, with a number of little sentiments and filled in with the date.
The vellum sheet was Cameo-cut with the trellis motif and stacked beneath a red, chevron, pattered paper; a couple of journaling sheets; and my photos, which were matted with Whisper White cardstock.  The left photo also had its top left corner rounded to mimic the curve in the journaling card; was flanked with a little, yellow star, trimmed off the yellow pennant above; and grounded with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on vellum, "SNAPSHOT DETAILS:" label, filled in with, "date:" August 10, 2012, "place:" our backyard.

A "love these snapshots" pennant was adhered to a turquoise, leaf, stick pin; embellished with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow; and tucked in behind that left photo, too.
The right photo was trimmed with a kraft envelope, as well as a "remember this" tag...
and an "oh so much FUN!" journaling circle, which was used to journal, We couldn't camp @ the lake, because we had tickets to the soccer game, but camping in the backyard turned out to be so much fun!, was anchored in its top corner.  A little stamped, in Jet Black ink, "YOU'RE INVITED" was added to its bottom right edge.  I also created the "gone camping" title, from black, ABC stickers, around the journaling bit's edges and hung a stamped, in Daffodil Delight ink, on White cardstock, hand cut, and glittered moon from a stamped, in Jet Black ink, string to reflect the night sky when paired with the starry background and complete the look.
Inspiration for this layout came from Elle's Studio's 3.21 Sketch Thursday.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
