6-27-12 Sketch

Here is the sketch today over @ Let's Scrap:

And, here is my take on it:

St. Patrick's Day
First...and foremost...don't judge me!  Seems I may have had one too many green beers that evening to even have thought that a giant, green, sequined, clown hat looked cute.  What was I thinking?  Oh well, it was a fun girls night out and the corned beef & cabbage is to die for.

Anyway, as is usual for me, I followed the sketch exactly.  Here are the technical notes for the layout:
  1. The pennant shaped banner was a Lifestyle Crafts cutting die.  Simply ran it through my Epic.  Easy peasy.
  2. The scalloped banner is made by punching scallops and then cutting them in half. 
  3. I downloaded a St. Patrick's Day themed set from the internet ($free.99).  It included the (word) banner on the rh side, the title, the circle embellishments and all of the green patterned paper and so much more!  
  4. The polka-dot paper and the journaling box are from my Creative Memories "CM" stash. 
There you have it.  If I were caught up and current, I would have posted a beautiful summertime layout. not the case.  But, happily here's another two-page layout done and in the books!

  1. I think the sequinned hat is where it's at! love it!!!

  2. That hat is great, Judy, and it tops off this great layout, too. I have made only a couple of banners in over 10 years of scrapping, so thanks for the hints on creating yours! Girls Night Out is always a great theme--I just love seeing adults at play! Thanks for sharing the link to this generous sponsor!
