Sketches in Thyme #198

Good morning all! Sketches in Thyme this week is showcasing a sketch by the very talented Bev Code:

Team 2 Sketch

And here is my version of this sketch:

May 9th Layout

These pics are of Lady Lou, who some of ya might remember passed away a couple of years ago. These pics were perfect for this sketch. I have always scrapped Lady in pink and felt the yellow really popped.


I added washi to match my colors, pairing them with some chevron bling from my April Use It or Lose It Challenge, using it this month as a second chance item.


The veneers are from Crate Paper, which I colored using a Watermelon gelato. The yellow doily is from Doodlebug. The pink pattern paper and silver bone paper is by Anna Griffin.


My journaling reads:
When Lady Lou was younger, she used to never play with toys or chew on bones. But one day, when she was about 12 yrs old, she picked up a rawhide chip and started chewing!

TFL! 🙂

Sketches in Thyme Sketch #193

Good morning everyone! Today is my turn to showcase the newest SIT sketch, created by the very talented Sara Mishler!

Team 2

Just check out all those rings! And layers! You could totally use stamping, mixed media, die cuts, doilies, the possibilities are endless!

And here is my take on it:

Brandy - April 9th

I chose Simple Stories “I {heart} Summer” collection for this sweet photo of Bella and Max, just “sittin’ on a porch swing”! This collection is one of my absolute faves, and so I’ve got lots of little bits and pieces. Those scraps came in handy as I was able to make different size/width rings and even through in a circle!


I fussy cut the tag out of pattern paper, and same with that heart. Then I just used little stickers and that puffy arrow is from CTMH, which I pulled for my April Use It Or Lose It Challenge.


Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check out Sketches in Thyme! Hope you can join us this month!

Sketches in Thyme Sketch #176 Reveal

Good morning all! Today is my turn to share with you Sketch #176 by Bev Code:

Team 2 December Sketch

And here is my take on it:

Team 2 - Brandy

Just look at Miss Penny, chewing away on a toy! I used mostly Bella Blvd’s “Rover” collection, and some old Cosmo Cricket mini alphas, and smudged brown mist by Inkadinkado. I fussy cut the bone paper and just added little embellies here and there from the Bella Blvd sticker sheet.


TFL and as always, make sure you stop by and check out the other reveals on Sketches in Thyme’s blog!

Sketches in Thyme #172

Today it’s my turn to showcase sketch #172.

Team 2 November Sketch

Lovely isn’t it?

When I saw this sketch, I had just gotten the new Bella Blvd “ROVER” collection. I knew I wanted to use those papers. Looking thru my photos, I stumbled upon Penny back in Feb 2013, snoozing away on the couch, cuddling with a toy.

Brandy - Team 2 - November

Can we say Adorable? Everything is Bella Blvd, except the scallopped circle (Bo bunny) and mist droplets (Tattered angels).

Hope you can hop over to Sketches in Thyme and play along!

TFL! 🙂

Miss Penny Lane at about 9 months old. Just check out that cute little face! Love her!


The papers are from 7 Papers and the little flair is from Pink Paislee. The “love you” die cut is from Anna Griffin.


The title is cut from a siloutte, and by my friend Sara. She made die cuts for each of my furbabies! ❤
