08/01/16 - MIM #67

Hi and Happy August!
Last month "The Memory Nest" had 4 sketches instead of the usual 2.
The same will happen this month.
Today I bring you "Make it Monday" Sketch #67.
Last day for entries = August 30th 2016.


"Our 15th" 
Journaling: "Our fifteenth anniversary included our traditional trip to Vegas.
We saw "Carrot Top" for the 2nd time, the 1st was for our 11th anniversary, and
ate at a new-to-us restaurant called "Rice and Company". Both were at the Luxor
and both were great! 7.17.16 /Anniversary = 7.16.16"

As you can see I didn't use many triangles on my layout.
I am not a triangle person...circles are my favorite shape and you have seen/will see them a lot on my layouts!
Incorporating the triangles into my layout was difficult for me, but I did include the large one on the bottom right, which doubles as a place to hold our tickets from the show, and I punched some smaller triangles that I added to the opposite corner to balance out the layout.

Fun fact: I bought the triangle punch a couple of years ago and this is the first time I've used it!                                           


  1. Love those hot colours and papers! Fab idea to use the bottom triangle as a pocket.

  2. Love this layout! The bright colors are just so fun, and I love your take on the sketch!

  3. Loveeeeeeeeeeee this! LOVING the colors (perfect for Carrot Top!) and loving the photos!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. The colors are wonderful! I love the way you used the large triangle as a pocket as well as the two on the top. Sounds like a perfect way to spend your anniversary!

  5. I'm not a triangle person either, at least not when it comes to layouts. The asymmetry is tough for me too. I would have struggled with this sketch for sure. You nailed it!

  6. Fabulous take on the sketch!! LOVE the yellow and orange papers!! So fun!! xo


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
