Nuts About Sketches latest sketch is another two pager. I had so much fun with this one. It always helps when you’ve got a cute furbaby to scrap too! 😉
Here’s my layout – featuring Jeffrey James 2 years ago. He had taken a rawhide outside and started chewing on it. A second later, he got bored with that and ended up chewing on a piece of dead grass. He did that for a few minutes. So if Jeffrey could talk and give someone advice, its that “Chewing on dead grass is more FUN than chewing on rawhide”. LOL!
Here’s close ups of the two pages
Since I went with a long title, I used Cricut cartridge “Opposites Attract” to cut it out.
And here’s the awesome two page sketch:
I absolutely fell in LOVE with the banner! And since I used about 90% of the Bo Bunny “Happy Tails”, the chipboard pieces were perfect to make a banner!
Using more chipboard pieces, I decorated the polaroid frame with stars:
“Lazy Days” sticker with the little heart is from Simple Stories SN@P “Dog” collection and the washi at the bottom of the pages is by Queen & Co.
I decided to scrap some older photos of my step-son with his cat Mischa. These are dated February 2000.
And here the sketch:
I only had these two photos, so I went with replacing the smaller 2×2 photos on the right side with pattern paper squares from DCWV. I pulled out (okay, dusted off!) my deco scissors and made them pretty. I then continued to use the scraps and make a couple of arrows. I didn’t have alot of journaling (as I didn’t know him or his daddy at that time), so I went with a large title – using my Cricut and the CCR to weld some of the letters together.
And I loved the hanging tags that was supposed to be the title, so I kept that and instead use my Cricut cartridge “Opposites Attract” to cut out the alpha tags. I loved that they were both circle and oval in shape. The thread is by WRMKs.
I was going to put one last arrow, pointing up, but instead fussy cut a cute little kitty from a sticker sheet by Pebbles.
The “pretty kitty” chipboard piece is by Bella Blvd. My cardstock is Bazzill. The large ring is from my stash, and I used Tattered Angels Mist in “It’s Red!” to go with my layout.
