Thought I would do a quick post and let you know that I am back from a quick vacay to Santa Fe. We had a fabulous time .. but it is always nice to be back home. Hopefully, I will be able to catch up on your blog posts in the next few days!
While you are here, I thought I'd share a layout that I did with one of our June sketches at Practical Scrappers. This layout was based on Jannike's (rosejen's) sketch, although I did flip it horizontally due to the orientation of my photo.
Here is the sketch which shows 3 photos. In place of those I just used one photo of my Dad. This is his highschool Senior photo, taken in 1940. I found it last year after my Mom passed away. It was still in its cardboard frame. A real treasure for sure!
I used some things from my June Swirlydoos kit, including the yummy Bo Bunny Timepiece collection with a mix of things from my stash. Because my maiden name was Key, I like to use lots of keys on my heritage pieces when I can. The stopwatches were fussy cut from the papers, then I added my floral, bling and some Tattered Angels overlays that are so cool!
I had planned to post this Thursday with our sketch feature at Practical Scrappers but thought that in honor of Father's Day yesterday. I would post it today.
You will also note Pia's sketch on my left-hand sidebar ... and hopefully you can join in before the 23rd. Just email your layouts to email@example.com for a chance to be featured! Can't wait to show you how I used Pia's!
Have a wonderful, productive week!
