this is my layout for this month's scrapbook sketch challenge at the store. we used a sketch that cosmo cricket had on their blog a little while back, and incidentally i ended up using a whole bunch of cosmo, with some thickers thrown in obviously, because when are they not present? just 4 of the items i'm currently lusting after at anthro. who else puts stuff on their wish list and then stalks it 'til it's on sale? just a little trick cheiron taught me. you have to act fast once it's on sale, but it definitely helps the wallet.
this layout was inspired by an ad i saw on fat quarter shop for a quilt pattern, so it just goes to show, you always have to keep an eye out for inspiration everywhere you go. i combined the "eve" and "indian summer" 6x6 paper pads from basic grey to make up all the little squares.
this one, all about one of my favorite people in the world, is also made using a 6x6 paper pad, "earth love" from cosmo cricket. i was a little stuck for this, so i flat out scrapjacked a layout from one of cosmo cricket's design team members, sorry i suck and forgot which girl it was and i can't find the layout now. : ( let me know if you know who it was, she did it using "joy ride"
and lastly, i've been saving this silk rose ribbon for a little while now, and with this paper it just seemed like perfection. everything is american crafts except for the pink polka dot from october afternoon and the "to go cup" stamp from a muse, which i like to use a white glaze pen with to make the top look like a plastic lid!
hopefully i'll be working on some post-birthday scrappies soon, especially now that i'm done with my whirlwind "max & whiskers class and the store yard sale! eep!
