Good morning! In the summertime, blogging gets away from me---I actually have things to blog about, but never seem to get to them :) While I have a quiet moment, I wanted to share a layout I did based on a sketch over at Sketches with a Twist---
I mostly used Crate Paper, the Maggie Holmes collection. I love the bright blue polka dots with splashes of hot pink. Lucie was clowning around in her "fedora"---fedoras arent just for little guys anymore---so I took a few instagrams in the car.
The "twist" was to use a safety pin somewhere on your layout. I used a pin that came on some outfit or another, and added some tiny royal seed beads to it.
You can also see one of my new favorite stamps from Stampin' Up---a grid pattern. Here are some closeups:
And just one more---using a little arrow stamp I love and an Elle's Studio tag.
This was so much fun to do! Here is the sketch I was inspired by:
There is still lots of time to participate in this challenge. Check it out here.
Oh, and a question for you veteran bloggers---I would really like to increase the number of followers I have---I have been stuck at 104 forever :) Does anyone have advice for me? The last boost I saw was with a RAK giveaway I did...what should I do? What do you think? Thanks!
thanks so much for stopping by today...
