Hello! Happy July!
Hello sunny days, late nights, flowers, enjoying the outdoors, BBQ, suntans, smiles, time to relax, shorts, sandals, fireflies, fireworks, vacations, staycations, road trips…
It’s Sketch-y Friday time, and Team A is up again at ScrapMuch? with a new sketch challenge. Of course with the start of the month, that also means we’re working with a 2 page layout.
And here is my take on the sketch:
Supplies used: Cardstock – American Crafts; Patterned Paper – Teresa Collins; Sequins – Teresa Collins; Chipboard Tag – Bazzill Basics; Pearls – Melissa Frances; Chipboard Cutouts – Pink Paislee; Buttons – Pink Paislee, American Crafts; Embroidery Floss – Bazzill Basics; Ink – Tim Holtz for Ranger Distress Ink; Mist – Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist; Ribbon – stash ; Rosette Die – Tim Holtz for Sizzix, cut with Vagabond; Title – Silhouette Cameo
As always I made a few of my own little modifications. Instead of journaling I used a part of the patterned paper with a phrase I really liked – “Cherish every moment”. I may add some hidden journaling later.
This layout is from New Year’s Eve a few years ago when we spent it at my favourite resort, Le Blanc Spa in Mexico. It was a beautiful, swanky evening. Think caviar and foie gras. For the record, I don’t like caviar nor foie gras. I loved the dress I bought special for the night, and got the salon to do my hair for me too. Canapes and cocktails were served on the terrace with a beautiful view across the lagoon in Cancun. We shared many laughs with friends we’d just met that week, and keep in touch with many of them still. It was my first fancy New Years Eve party. I wore open toed shoes because I didn’t have to worry about traipsing through snow and ice. That night is one of many reasons I have to be thankful for so many amazing things in my life, and one of many reasons to love my life. That was my second trip to Le Blanc (there have been 3 or 4 since) and I truly feel like it is my home away from home. It’s a very very special place. I can’t wait to go back.
I would love for you to visit the ScrapMuch? blog and see the rest of the amazing design team reveal for this week. And then of course you need to play along with the sketch too! 😉 Make sure you link up and share with us what you create for a chance to win an amazing ScrapMuch? prize. I can’t wait to see what you create!
Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for stopping by! And Happy Independence Day to all my visitors from south of the 49th parallel!
