I found myself with some free time(!!!) last week to create after I finished up some DT layouts for ScrapMuch? and I was still feeling inspired to create some more. I was loving the sketch that Laura had posted to Stuck?! Sketches because it was out of my comfort zone. I’m also trying to scrap some of my older photos before I print and move on to the new, but sometimes that’s a challenge after looking at them so much! I also felt the same way about a few of my papers in my stash that I’d been hoarding and now starting to grow bored of.
So here is the sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch:
The paper company, Luxe is no longer in business but they did some really swanky & edgy designs. I even loved that this line was called Cocktail Dress. It was perfect for this layout of a monster sized mango margarita! What I also totally love is the whimsy olive pattern on one of the papers, and the hexagon pattern that was so in not so long ago! The blurring of the outline was a happy accident as I used my Sharpie paint pen and moved the ruler before the paint was dry – and seemingly works with the unfortunately blurry photo of me with that margarita (that’s what happens when you hand off your P&S to someone who isn’t up on the nuances of it!)!
For the record, the margarita, like everything else at Arriba, was fantastic!!!
Stay tuned as I have another reveal for ScrapMuch? going live on Friday, and then it’s time for Inspiration Unlimited. So excited! For those not in the know, Inspiration Unlimited, or IU for short is an event put on by the amazing Teresa Collins every year in Henderson NV. I’ve been fortunate to attend for the last 2 years, and this year will be my third. As far as scrapbook events go this one is a bit on the small and intimate side of ~300 scrappers. It’s been sold out for a few years (if not all) and there is a waitlist to attend. If you want to join the waitlist please email EVENT@TERESACOLLINSSTUDIO.COM! I will do my best to blog regularly while there but the days are so full of fun that I don’t get a lot of blog time! And I love every second of it!!
