Good morning! Today is a great day! It's reveal day at Stuck?! Sketches as well as my younger son's birthday. So, with out further delay, here is the second July sketch. Remember that playing along gives you a chance to win prizes from our sponsors. See the rules for details.
Would you look at that. I pretty much followed the sketch! I received a contest prize from American Crafts that included this collection. I don't usually buy fall/Thanksgiving themed papers, so it was a nice change to play with these colors. Challenging, but fun. I used a mix of patterns for balance. Then I swapped out one of the photos for a journal card and created an embellishment cluster around the title. Im in a stitching phase right now, so of course I had to add some to my page.
I make Thanksgiving every year, and have for the past 25 years. It's my thing. I love having people over, and my door is open to anyone who has nowhere to go. But, I also haven't lived near family for the past 25 years, so someone has always come to visit me so I am not 'alone'. This year, I invited some friends over, and at the last minute, my sister came as well. We prepped and cooked for two days, without any arguing and had the most amazing Thanksgiving I can remember.
Thanks for taking a look at my creative view today. Come back again soon. I have lots up my sleeve!
