Two Layouts on the Menu for Today

Hi there,

Had good intentions today, but didn't accomplish much.  Blah!!

Today I'm only posting two layouts.
The first one was a submission to Sketch Inspiration (Sketch #340)

These photos were taken during the Boy Scouts Winterama.  Winter events and
challenges held outside in the snow!  Boys have so much fun... if they're dressed for
the weather.  Some boys never quite get the meaning of "BE PREPARED."

In the first photo was a water boil competition.  Andrew was checking if the water
was hot enough to make hot chocolate for a "victim" that was on the verge of

Since Linda and I were judging this competition, Andrew got to take a break, when he
finished his competitions, and spend some time with our grandson, who was enjoying the
festivities also.  In order for him to see better, Andrew plopped him down on this
huge tree stump.  Then he was happy and content to watch from above.

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Colorbok, Momenta
Folk Art Paint
Smooch Spritz
Stickers: Me & My Big Ideas
Font: Cricut Opposites Attract

I used a ruler to mark where the ribbon would go before adhering on the layout.  This was
the only way I could ensure even lines!  The title letters were added on top of this.

The edges of the tags were brushed with paint using a cotton ball.  Spritz was also added.
For the "stars" I used the tip of the sponge brush and created the lines.
I cut two thin strips of cheesecloth and smeared it wish Spritz before tying it
through the tags.

These stickers fit in so well with the theme.

A closer look at the ribbon and title letters.

This layout was a submission at Colorful Creations
for their Guest Designer Sketch Challenge (gdtsept).

Andrew sure had fun for the short time he was on this trampoline.  He tried very
hard to get as high as he could!

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV
Circles: Traced w/Random objects & hand cut
Sanding Block
Star Brads
Circle Brads
Leaf Die: Sizzix
Big Shot
Magic Mesh
Self-adhesive Cork Board
Font: Cricut Stamped
Pop Dots

Twine was wrapped around the circle.  It ended up being so bulky from all that

On top of the circle I layered mesh, cork board, leaves, cheesecloth and then the tag.

The leftover mesh was cut to fit in the corner of the photo.

Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
Libby  :)
