First and foremost, I want to say congrats and welcome back to Sketches in Thyme! I decided to end my 3 year run with the blog in August, and it has been taking a little rest for a few months. But now it is up and running again as Vanessa breathes new life into it! This is wonderful news because SIT is a great resource for sketches and fabulous design. So, since there is a new sketch to play along with, and since I have finally gotten my scrapping mojo back...here's the latest SIT sketch:
and here's how I interpreted it:
This was a fun sketch to play with, I love a simple single-photo page with lots of white space and room for layers! For my colors I chose the current challenge over at Color Q:
I LOVE the combo of Poppy, Grey, and White with the Indigo and Pool Party! And even though I didn't have ANY of those colors in my photo, I think it works just fine. Besides, life's too short to worry about "do my papers match my pics"...just have fun and scrap!!
I also used 3 other favorite challenges to this layout. 1-They are playing with GLITTER at Child's Play Challenges, so I used fabulous glitter stickers from my stash for the word "cozy". I also sprayed my white background with indigo glimmer mist, but I don't think that really shows in the pic.
2-The challenge this week at Pile it On is WOOD, so I pulled out my wood grain embossing folder and used it on the indigo cardstock behind my photo mat.
3-Finally, at Lasting Memories, their challenge is to use a snowman. I thought this would be the perfect LO to incorporate a snowman embellie, but I searched and searched in my craft room and I had nothing! No snowmen on ribbons, no snowmen stamps, no snowmen stickers, what is a scrapper to do?? Well, I went over to good old Pinterest, searched "snowman embellishment" and found this adorable card with a little Jillibean Soup snowman stamp on it: So...I pulled out the pencil and pens and drew one of my own, thank you Pinterest! And thank YOU for stopping by! =) T
