08/08/13 SIT Sketch #119 - "Last Day of 5th Grade"

The new sketch is up at "Sketches in Thyme"!
Today we have sketch #119:  
And here is my layout:
"Last Day of 5th Grade" 
Journaling: "Madison and her BFF, Emily, on the last day of 5th grade"
This layout came together really quick! For the most part I followed the sketch... the only differences is on mine is I used 2 pics and instead of the circle I used a square. I kept the matting of the pics simple, Black on White, because the BG paper is was so busy!  I'm actually not too big a fan of the BG paper but I used it because it was in an old "Elementary School" paper pad I have had for years and I am still trying to get rid of my stash! Also this would be one of the last times I could use "Elementary" school paper, ::sniff, sniff::. I threw in some stickers and washi tape for added embellishment but for the most part I didn't put too many extras because, again, the BG paper is so busy! I DO like that the BG paper says "Last Day of School" and "Friends" on it... helps me feel I made the right choice!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by SIT and share your take on the sketch! 


  1. I have a REALLY hard time with busy papers like that. I should just get rid of them all since any time I try, I end up replacing it with something less bold. You did a great job with it.

  2. This is soooooooooooo fun!! LOVING that background paper!!!

  3. I love how you follow these sketches and make everything look super easy! I can't follow a challenge or sketch unless I tweak it A LOT, and it ends up not looking like it at all, LOL! :) GREAT job!

  4. I absolutely love the background paper that you used. You're right! It's just perfect for the theme of your page.


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