Teachers Open Our Eyes to the World

It's Thursday....sketch day at Sketches in Thyme! Here's what I came up with for this week:

My little trick for this layout? The PP I used is double sided, light blue on one side, crazy pattern on the other. I used my Creative Memories to cut out a circle just where I wanted it, then flipped the circle over and used good old Scotch tape on the back to keep it in place. A cool way to use both sides of the double sided PP on one layout! I also stitched Xs all around the circle- just for fun, but it does strengthen it a bit too. See the strip of notebook edge on the top? That's just a sheet ripped out of my handy-dandy journaling notebook. I used the edge along the top, and the rest of the sheet was used for my journal strips and title.

I hope you'll go visit the rest of the Sketches in Thyme DT and see how they put the sketch to good use, oh and don't forget about my blog candy giveaway here. =) T
