Two to Share

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Well, school ended, Bar Mitzvah was incredible, family has come and gone.  That means I get to begin to find a summer vacation routine.  I had two things on my list to do. First, create my page for Sketches in Thyme.  Second, submit a page to Scrap Our Stash for the About Our Guys challenge.  Wow, I haven't participated in a challenge in over a month. Sure feels good to be back!

Here is Sketches in Thyme Sketch #115

and here is my LO:

I chose to turn it into a single page LO.  I had the idea to use these photos when I saw this sketch. Actually, this sketch lends itself to a lot of photos that I have. It's a great sketch for sequential photos.  i don't usually use the little 3x4 cards on one side of a PP, but this time I did. They worked great with this sketch.

Supplies: PP-Crate Paper, MME, Alphas-Thickers, thread-DMC, Tape-MME, Recollections, buttons-SEI, wood veneer-Studio Calico

This next LO is what I created for Scrap Our Stash.  About our guys with a twist to use 5 or more brads.  Pretty sure I aced this one...

I'm getting around to our 2008 spring break trip to St. Louis.  We were just hanging out in the hotel room watching bad TV.  Sometimes I think that is half the fun for the kids anyway....

I kept this LO pretty simple.  I thought the brads added a bit of texture and some details. Oh, and there are definitely more than 5!

Supplies-CS-Bazzill, PP-Lily Bee, Buttons-AC, Brads-Making Memories, Alphas-Thickers, Echo Park

Thanks for stopping today.  Be sure and check out this week's sketch at Sketches in Thyme.  There's still some time left to enter your LO at Scrap Our Stash too!
