This is actually a combination of both the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge and the June Stitching Challenge.
I did this layout of Madeline at the pumpkin patch in 2009 - not your regular autumn looking colors, due to Texas' weather, (I'm not complaining). I used a piece of paper from the new DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack. The strips are cut from one sheet of the 12 x 12 paper. I had to split them behind the pictures, (using a Frugal Friday Tip from SOS), in order for the strip to fit diagonally on the page. I then cut the snail, and flowers out of one of the leftover strips. I then pen stitched around the top and bottom of the strips and pictures which gave the layout more pizazz!
This was a fun sketch to work with - I plan to use it again. I really like the circles in the sketch - but just couldn't make them work on this page - maybe next time.
Now it's your turn! Take one or both of the challenges - or combine them into one layout. See details for the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge and the June Challenge on the Scrap Our Stash blog HERE.
