Well, another week has come and gone ... and it's time for today's reveal at Stuck on U Sketches. We used a Pagemaps sketch once again this week and it was a great one.
I had such a great time working on this layout of my ggd Peyton, affectionately know as "P" or "Peanut." I used some more of my Basic Grey Capella papers and since this was the end of my stash, I ordered 2 more packs! I just love it and don't think I will ever tire of it! I did quite a bit of distressing to my paper edges and hit them with my Chestnut ink. In the center there is a piece of blue Anna Griffin paper.
Because I had this matching journaling embellishment, I used it instead of the rectangular journaling piece noted on the original sketch. It comes with a decorative transparency which added alot to the page I thought.
In this photo you can see the brown ribbon that I used once again .. and I believe that was the last of it. I bought it at Joanns Fabric .. time for another trip down there! On top of the brown ribbon I placed some adhesive backed pearls just to dress things up a bit and in keeping with the pearls that Peyton is wearing in the photo. I also used a Prima brown Swirl which I cut and pieced together like I wanted. The blue ribbon was also from my stash and really helped to bring out the teal in the papers. My photo mat was cut with the Sentimentals cart and using my Cricut.
Here is my little floral cluster .. all Prima. The yellow one is a gift from Floren at Generations Crafting. She also carries the blue Tea Rose. Love the hint of pale yellow in this sheet of paper too!
Just one final photo of my title .. didn't have much room here .. and didn't want to cover up the rose on the paper .. so I split the word peanut .. then I used some old Loopy Lou brown letters that I had on hand. I did this layout one evening when it was pouring down rain outside .. and just thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It's one of my all time favorites!
Thanks for coming by and hope that you make it around to visit my DT sistas at SOUS! We so appreciate you! And I join them in saying a sad farewell to Sandy W who is stepping down from SOUS to pursue some much needed rest and attention to things at home. Miss you, sweet Sandy!
