"Trouble" for NSD and Sketch 'n' Scrap

Most people reading this blog probably realize that last Saturday was (inter)National Scrapbook Day, but just in case you didn't, yeah, it is a thing!  I had kind of forgotten about it (I know, bad scrapbooker!) until I started reading my blog roll in the morning, and then shouted out to my family, "It's NSD, I am going to scrapbook ALL.  Day!"  You can imagine how well that went over.  So my ambitions were somewhat downgraded to, "Okay fine, but I want to make at least one page."  And here you have it:
I've been wanting to scrap these photos for a while, and finally I found the perfect sketch to go with them:
It's from Sketch 'N' Scrap, and as you can see, I didn't deviate much.  Papers are from Simple Stories, twine and wood veneer by Close to My Heart, glitter tape from Michael's, and a ticket stub from Tim Holtz.

A couple close ups of the journaling:

I'm quite happy with how this page turned out, and the fact that I finished it in one day!  I even had time to start another layout, but haven't touched it since.  Maybe tomorrow...
