LCTS sketch #149

Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We had the most beautiful weather here in Ohio, so I spent most of the weekend soaking up the sunny days with the fam and away from my craft desk.  I did however, squeak out a page for the latest Let's Capture These Sketches, sketch #149, that was revealed on Friday.  Here's the sketch...


I bet you'd never guess that that amount of white space, in the sketch, scared me a bit (wink!).  It's so very different from my own personal scrapping style -  I like to fill up my page with pictures, product and journaling!  But that is definitely part of the fun of working with sketches since it presents a bit of a challenge and jump start to your creativity!  So, to make the sketch work for me, I flipped it on it's side to accommodate my vertical photo and made a LARGE matting for said picture.

Supplies used: Echo Park Be Mine collection patterned papers, letter and phrase stickers, Tattered Angels - glimmer mist, Technique Tuesday stamps by Ali Edwards, Doodlebug doodletwine and brads, Making Memories flowers, Stampin Up - decorative label punch, Fiskars - circle punch, MAMBI - heart shaped gem, Other: machine stitching, computer font (2peas Chestnuts), buttons, embroidery floss, ribbon.

My journaling was printed out on a plain white tag.  I dressed it up with an Ali Edwards phrase, some twine and tucked it under the photo and large folded flower embellishment.

A few buttons, brads and a little bit of bling finished off the page.


Thanks for stopping by to check out my interpretation of the sketch.  I hope you'll pop on over the the LCTS blog to check out the work from the rest of the girls!
