11/08/12 - SIT Sketch #92

Good Morning!

Today Sketches in Thyme is revealing their first sketch for the Month of November.

 Here is the sketch:

And here is what I did w/ it:


Since it was assigned to us during October, I was in the "Halloween" mood so I decided to scrap a couple of pics of my daughter from Halloween of last year
I didn't really have a story to tell about these pics, but I made sure to include the important stuff:
  • the year
  • her name (especially since w/ the mask on you can't tell who it is!)
I am a big advocate of journaling, but I think it's okay to skip it every once in a while.
And I made my title small so it wouldn't over power the pictures. It's in the lower left hand corner overlapping the double paper strip border and corner of the pic :  "Boo-yah!"
That wasn't actually the title I had in mind.
In fact I didn't have a title in mind! But I came across a "monster" sticker sheet in my stash and thought that "Boo-yah" was as good a title as any!
I used up some scraps and old product too:
The polka dot paper is a scrap piece and the yellow circle, light blue "chain" border, and circle clown hat embellie are all from that 8x8 pad of paper I shared w/ you last week; if you remember, they are approximately 10 years old. The letters used for "Madi" are over 2 years old.
And lately I have been in love w/ twine!!! I usually use it by tying it in a bow, but this time, because of the flourish in the sketch, I decided to kinda just let it coil itself around my layout. Just a little glue here and there helped to hold the shape and keep the twine from falling of the layout.
I think it came out pretty good, if I do say so myself!!!

Well, enough about me!
It's your turn!
