Fun Stuff

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

This month really did not go as planned. I was really excited to be a part of LOAD. It's the only one this year I would be able to do. I quickly got side tracked and have found it hard to recover.  What I mean is, I found it hard to get back to a LO a day.  The good thing is, I've been able to scrap. I've even had large chunks of time to do multiple pages, just not a LO a day.  I decided that my goal was to still complete 28 LO's this month, and I will actually meet this goal.

One reason I will meet this goal is Sketches in Thyme.  I used all 3 sketches this month!  Here I used Sketch #103.  I had laid these photos out in 57 different designs, and never even thought to try them this way.


I used my standard 4x6 photos, so I chose to use photos in place of the multiple blocks of PP on the left side of the LO.  The last panel on the right became my journaling block.  I used some very old PP (some so old they have no manufacturer name on them) and my new banner die to create the banner under the photos.  I'm not a great sports photographer.  There were lots of busy photos and patterns, so I chose to leave the embellishing to a minimum.

Supplies:
PP-Echo Park, paper Pizzazz, Karen Foster, unknown
Title Sticker-Sports Company
Banner Die-Sizzix
die cut-Echo Park
CS-Bazzill


This LO is the Club CK Jan/Feb Issue Challenge #9-Shapes are Everywhere.  My shape to show is Stars.  I use stars all the time, but when presented with the challenge, I froze.  I had already decided to use Sketches in Thyme Sketch #101, but with my standard 4x6 photos.  I just had to figure out the rest.  Well, washi tape to the rescue.  I bought the coordinating tape that went with these papers, so the colors were perfect.  Not only that, the stars on the tape brought all the colors together.

These photos make me laugh.  He's always been curious, and a bit mischievous as well.
