Brims from Ear to Ear

Sunday, January 5, 2014

I'm rolling, 2 posts within the first week of the year. I'm going to continue on my quest to try new places for Scrappy Challenges.  My choice for January is My Scraps and More. I've been following this blog for quite a few months. I've Pinned several of their daily inspiration layouts, as well as sketches which are released on Fridays. I did use a MS&M sketch for one of my LO's. You can find the post for it here .

Well, for the first Friday post this month, they are having a blog hop. I really like their DT, so  I participated in the hop, and this is the LO I created with their sketch.

We were down in So Cal for a family event for the other side of my family. But I couldn't be down there and nit see my Mom!  She was really happy we made brunch plans with her and my Grandma. We didn't expect a 2 hour wait, or a shadeless area to wait in. It didn't matter to Grandma and Grandson. They had their hats to keep the sun off their faces and each other to pass the time.

You know me. I'm a 4x6 gal about 80% of the time.  So, again, I have adjusted a sketch to suit my needs. But hey, they are a jumping off point right?  This is a GREAT sketch! So easy to adapt to just about any way I want. I used 2 different sized 'squares' in order to extend the sketch to accommodate the photo. I added some washi against the papers, then layered a vellum die cut and twine over it.  I'm still experimenting with 'little bits' as embellishments.  I've never been an embellishment guru,  but I'm finding using lots of little things easier to do.  I used more stuff from those 3 Citrus Twist Kits I had too.  I'm truly amazed how far those kits have gone and how much I've enjoyed using them.

It's always fun when the mojo starts going again. Thanks to My Scraps and More, I got this done quickly and I love it!
