Hi there,

My layout for today was submitted at ScapMuch? for their sketch challenge.  It looked like such a fun sketch so I decided to play along.  Here's the sketch:

This is what I created:
These photos are of Linda and I on one of the many hikes we went on to prepare for climbing the "monster" mountain - Katahdin.  I don't think I've ever hiked so much in several months!  We sure had lots of fun too!

 Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Colorbok
Washi Tape: Hand Made
Bling: Recollections
EK Success Corner Rounder
Nestabilities Die (used for tracing)
Seam Binding Rosette: Hand Made
Gems: Forever in Time
Font: Cricut Opposites Attract

 I used a strip of washi tape under the photos.  The edges of the background paper were distressed.
 The tag was covered with washi tape also.  I tied a bow at the top and added bling.

A closer look at my flower grouping with gem centers.
Here's a better look at my glittery washi tape .  I used double stick tape, tissue paper, glitter paint, inks and stamps.  
The background paper was sanded  a bit.  Swirly bling was tucked under the brown flower.  Under the flowers and title is a "frame" which was traced using my Nestabilities dies.  There are lots more choices in sizes by tracing them!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
