Week 30 : 52 week sketch challenge

Welcome to another week of this challenge.
I was dreading making this layout but once I found my photos and had them cropped. They fit perfectly and I knew just what paper to use. I had to use Echo Park's Summertime and Playground collections. They go perfectly together for summertime projects.

Using some kraft paper as a base, I then decided to accent the layout with the designer paper. Something I haven't done quite like this before and I'm thrilled on how it turned out.

Week 29: 52 week sketch challenge

I'm falling behind a day this summer. Kind of ok kind of not. lol Ok because I'm spending the weekends at camp and not ok because I didn't know what to do and kind of did this weeks pretty fast.
Hope you give it a try and if you do please leave a comment of where I can see it :)

I decided to use some Cosmo Cricket paper. I want to use it up to clear out since it's not my favorite. Girl Friday & everafter paperstack that is.

I also used the purple polkadot paper from Echo Park's summer time collection. I also used some pink paper from a birthday paper I got at walmart. I believe it's from ATD or something like that.

I used some rub ons from a dollar store to spell out "So Cute"

Buttons are from Basic Grey and a handmade flower using lace and a cabochon flower.

Halloween In Wonderland Mini Album!

I finally have another mini album to share with you.  I'm so excited! I know it's the middle of summer and nowhere near Halloween but I just had to get my hands busy with this paper collection by Graphic 45.

As soon I saw saw Regan's December Daily mini album on YouTube (Emora Designs) I knew I wanted to take her recycled concept and make a mini almost like it. With this paper, and getting my hands on binding wires I knew I had to make my idea come to life. Another reason I wanted to do this now and not in October is because I had this door knob from 7 Gypsies I purchased just for this album!.

For this album I gathered old cardboard pieces from the recycling bin and from scrapbooking packaging. I also included pages from chipboard albums you find in the 1.50$ section in Michaels.
