Sketchy Thursdays #1.12 , The Play Date Cafe #114

This week's sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:

Plus these colors from the Play Date Cafe:

Equals this page from me:

I obviously didn't follow the sketch exactly, I flipped it...and made few other changes. I am usually a 8.5 x 11 pager, so I always feel a bit awkward doing larger pages.  The only reason I ever do larger pages is for this:

I do an album for every year of my 5 kid's life.  From birthday to birthday... that's a lot of albums. So, to cut cost down, I buy regular 3 ring albums and page protectors - which is why I scrap 8.5 x 11 :)  Anyway, it's great because I get to decorate the album itself, as well.

supply list:
patterned paper - Prima ( purple and gold); October Afternoon (Kitchen Cupboard)
cardstock - Stampin' Up!(Cherry Cobbler)
flowers - Prima
ribbon - May Arts
rhinestones - Stampin' Up!
letter stickers - American Crafts (Honey puffy letter stickers)
other stickers - 7Gypsies
embossing folder - Cuttlebug
punch - Stampin' Up! (notebook edge)
jounaler - Zig
buttons - unknown

Thanks for looking!

Pin It!
