Layout #27 - Sketches in Thyme and Scrapbooker's Anonymous





You know why I love playing along with Scrapbooker's Anonymous? Whenever I do a project for their challenges, EVERYONE from the DT stops by my blog to leave a comment (well, maybe not everyone, I've never actually counted, but it's probably pretty close)! That makes a lady feel pretty nice, and appreciated! Their challenge this month is to use 6 or more patterned papers from a mini deck. Well, I honestly didn't think I'd be able to play along this month because I only have one mini deck (Basic Grey Sugared) and I used pretty much all of it on a couple of mini albums. Once I tracked down my scraps (and this opened up my eyes to just how much of a hoarder I am, because I had some pretty tiny scraps), I realized I had enough to join in, as long as I was a bit creative. I think at last count I had 11 different patterns on this page, and I even used EYELETS!!! I know, I didn't think I had any at all, but I found 'em and used 'em! (Now if I could only find my sewing machine!) Oh, I also got to break out my BRAND NEW Hero Arts background stamp I won from Creative Accents, just for commenting on their blog - thanks, ladies!

I also decided to use this sketch from Sketches in Thyme:

I really like it, I think it's very unique. Seems like I can only scrap using a sketch these days, but I'm cool with that!

I know the photos aren't the best quality, but I had to make a page about this, it was too cute! Ailis really worked up a sweat, running and doing a modified long jump, over and over and over. Brenna was there, too, watching, cheering, and learning how to stand (in her own safe area of the rec room)! And I got to scrap, so how much better could it be?

Supplies: CTMH White Daisy cardstock (for base), Blush and Garnet ink pads, and Hemp, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Hero Arts stamp, Hampton Arts tiny alpha stamps, Tim Holtz Grungeboard and Distress Inks (Fired Brick and Walnut Stain), Ranger Perfect Pearls (Heirloom Gold), Basic Grey patterned paper, Creative Memories pen, Sakura white gel pen, eyelets and buttons from my stash

  3. This is awesome! I especially love the heart and wings!
    I know what you mean about DTs leaving comments... I thought I was the only one having that problem. lol When I was on my DTs they told us to try to comment to a certain number of people each week... I would try to comment on more though. But after I got back into blogging I joined three or four challenges and not ONE person on the DTs stopped by to look at my layout and leave a comment. I went and checked and some of them had about 10 DT members and about 4 people playing along. No wonder if you ask me...
    Oh well... I didn't mean to go into all of that, but is sure isn't an encourager to join in again. lol
    I will have to check this challenge site out. I think I am following it already, will have to make sure. :)
    Oh, and please don't think I am whining or anything.. its just a lot different then what I was once used too. :)

    p.s. the baby on my last blogged card is a Sizzix die cut, for the boy I made the outfit blue shorts and a white top, but left it as a onesie for the girl baby!

  7. I love it!!! and we love Ice Age at our house so we know the song (: Even if the pics aren't always the best it's the memory that counts!! I love how you used the grungeboard!! It looks fabulous. Thanks for hooking me up with the sketch too!!! I'm with you on using a sketch, I almost always use one, even if it's just a starting point.
