Friends - Sketch N Scrap - My Minds Eye Lost and Found

All my time away has really eaten into my scrappy time.  I nearly missed the deadline for the design team reveal on Sketch N Scrap.  Thankfully Lisa, the owner of the site, graciously forgave me for only uploading my layout late on the last night.  Thank you Lisa.  With my time away with Shayne and Cat still fresh in my memory, I decided to scrap the photo of us being silly on the beach.  We had such a fantastic time together that I would love to see this becoming an annual "kuier" (visit).  Here is my layout based on Lisa's sketch.

The colours of this layout was inspired by Linda's layout.

Supply list:  Cardstock: American Craft; Patterned papers: My Minds Eye Lost and Found, Glitz; Flowers: Prima and Pettaloo; Brads: Basic Grey; Title Rub on: Kaiser Scrapbook; Bling: Prima; Other: Texture paste and a Crafters Workshop stencil; Twine.

The pebbles on the beach of San Lameer was greyish black and I used these mother of pearl buttons from my stash to remember the pebbles.

A little cluster of flowers, brads and bling.  Not too much because I like the focus to be on my photo.  I also opted to use one large photo rather than the four small ones.

I love using Kaiser Scrapbook rubons as titles.  I cut the chevrons with my Silhouette.  The "Happy" tag was cut from a piece of pattern paper.

I never imagined that I would become so addicted to using texture paste...I love the effect it gives.

Here is the sketch by Lisa:
