SiT # 118 and a SMASH Page!

Helloooooo, out there in the blogosphere, anyone hear me?  Either everyone's on summer holidays without computers, or I've lost a lot of followers with the whole Google reader closure thing, but I'm awfully lonely over here!  I miss all my loyal commenters!!!  Well, for those of you still reading my blog, here is a page I put together featuring a new sketch from Sketches in Thyme and some lovely Everyday Eclectic papers and stickers from Echo Park:
 And here's sketch #118 for your usage:

I seem to have taken some liberties with this sketch, probably more so than usual, but hopefully you can see where I was inspired with the strips of paper behind the three photos.  Here are some close-ups of the journaling and banner:



I thought I was over the banner craze, but apparently not!  The whole amusement park theme seemed to call for some banners!  I also went a bit crazy with the inking around the base paper, something I haven't done for a while.  I was going for an instagram-ish look, but not really sure I succeeded.  Meh, maybe next time!

And for those of you waiting with bated breath for a glimpse of our new home, here it is in all it's loggy glory:
 My mom took this photo when she came up for a visit, and so far it's the only one of the outside.  I paired it up in a SMASH page featuring a housewarming card from my mom and the letter we received from our realtor.  I made the pocket and flower using one of the oldest pieces of paper in my stash and my Silhouette.  I also used the Silhouette to cut the letters with our address.  I have to tell ya, it feels good to use up some older product and finally get SMASHin' again!

I hope you'll join us at Sketches in Thyme with any of our three sketches this month, and thanks for looking!

  1. Hi Roxy :) I'm so sorry that I haven't stopped by your blog for a while, you know how it is, before you know it, it's bedtime and you haven't done half what you thought you might/hoped to do that day! I'm here now though, and love your page and your Smash pages too! Your new house looks absolutely amazing, would love to see more photos!

    Big hugs
