Schools out! Schools Out! Teachers let the monkeys out!!!
Am I the only one that remembers that chant from school? I'm showing my age huh? Well, yesterday was officially the last day of school for my kiddos........let the summer begin!!! And can you believe that my 2 youngest were up at 7:30 this morning???? WHY?????? Geeze guys, it's summer!!! You are supposed to sleep in!!! Leave it to my kids to be abnormal!!
I'm gonna try to keep this quick today.......I created a LO last night using the May sketch at Artful Delight! And I am so happy the rain held off long enough for me to get an outdoor shot of my layout! The sketch features one of my fave things.......grid based design!!! I have so much fun turning these kinda sketches into my own :)
And my take on it......I kinda veered off course because I couldn't find any photos I could chop down to a small square.....lol. But I am really happy with how it turned out!!
My base paper is an oldie from Cosmo Cricket. The clouds I fussy cut from a sheet of American Crafts, the rest of the patterned papers are Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer. I used a bunch of chipboard on this one....mosty of which hyou can't even see....all the squares are on chipboard to give it some oomph :) The sun and ball are also from American Crafts as are the Thickers.....also chipboard. Rest of the chipboard is from the same Pink Paislee collection as the DP's. You can't really see it but I did spray it down with some yellow tattered angels mist, it's in the corners where it looks like green splatters of paint. And my chipboard banner is attached to bakers twine stapled to the layout.
The cute kid is, of course, my youngest Jesse. Doesn't he look like a stinker here???
In addition to the monthly sketch challenge at Artful Delight I am playing along with. ScrapFIT Workout 68 Misting, The Paper Girls Use your chipboard stash, and Paper Secrets where the challenge is to use 75 % Pink Paislee product. I suck at math so I am hoping this qualifies....lol.
