It's FRIDAY! You know what that means, a great challenge @ the Scrap Your Story Challenge Blog! This week we are working with an awesome sketch! The sketch (as seen on the right), was a fun one to work with! Two photos, a giant circle,and both a vertical and horizontal line. I stayed fairly true to the sketch, but remember, you can flip, rotate, tweak, whatever you need! I hope to see you play along with us this week! I grabbed my June Kit from Scrapbook Circle, a few scraps from my scrap box and this is what I came up with :
This past weekend the three of us attended a concert at the zoo in Apple Valley, MN. We had front row seats at this outdoor, all-ages show. It was Bea's first concert! You will see more photos from this trip at some point; I am currently working on a mini book all about it!
I took the main background paper (Basic Grey :: Bow Ties :: kick the can) and cut a big circle on my Silhouette, then placed another piece of patterned paper (Farmhouse Paper Company :: where ideas take root) behind it. I machine stitched around the circle to define it a bit more, and then added a few stitches in other locations (can never have enough stitches!). The bright orange arrows are all from the kit as well, they are fuzzy rub-ons (part of the Hipster collection by Basic Grey). I also added some wood veneer shapes that I tinted with orange ink. The "hello" is also from the Hipster Collection, and the "cheap trick" is from Recollections. This was a fun layout to make!
Check out Scrap Your Story and play along this week! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
