Merry Christmas from us to you, you, you and you!! May this holiday season sparkle and shine. May all your wishes and dreams come true and may you feel this happiness all year round. #throwbackThursday Pic from 2007
I have a layout up on the October Afternoon blog today. If you need a little break from the festivities, I say why don't you play along with my sketch? :)
I kept pretty close to the sketch, cutting strips of Story Time pp from Public Library and arranging them towards the top portion of the layout. I adore that patterned paper, I guess I will always have a soft spot for papers with text on them. I'm a bookworm if you can't tell. :D
Then I took two banner shapes from this Sew Fun Banners pack, used one of them to draw attention to the number 15 (we've been married 15 years this year!) and another as some sort of a mat for my journaling strips. I also added a stamped tab underneath one of the paper strips before I machine stitched everything in place.
And oh! I absolutely think that Just sayin' tin pin is perfect for my layout! Don't you think so? That's just how we roll. In fact, if you follow me on Instagram, you'd have known that I dropped Sam on his butt right after this picture was taken. LOL.
I added a chipboard heart and my last strip of journaling on the lower part of my layout because I really love how it looks. I consider that my own spin on the sketch even when I was the one who created the sketch in the first place.
Do share with us on Instagram. Use the hashtag #octoberafternoon and tag me @sashafarina as I'd love to see your take on this sketch.
