Keeping the Best - Sketch #51

 

Wooohoooo...finally I have some scrapping I can share :) :) :)
I have been scrapping up a storm this week, but this is the first one I can share.  Now that I have all of next months DT commitments out of the way, I can finally do a challenge or 2.

Just one for today though....for sketch #51 at Keeping the Best

Here is what I've come up with.....



 
Using some fabulous 7Gypsies "Postale" papers that I bought forever ago from Paper Stories in a kit...some 2crafty chipboard pieces & a few other bits n' bobs.

  
This is the fabulous sketch
 
 
 
 
And now for some close ups :)
 
 
 
I love this piece of 2crafty chipboard...I think I could use a piece on just about every outdoorsy type of layout I create.  It's the Summer Leaf Stems...and comes in a pack of 3 different sizes.
Oooops...just noticed that the glue under the red button isn't dry yet...I think I must have been super keen to get my layout up!
 
 
 
The 2crafty piece under the photo is actually a scrap piece that I cut from Ornate Fence for a layout a few months ago....as you can see, I never throw anything out! :)
 
 
 
Tucked in under the photo is a piece of the Bracket Frames...that I've cut in half & used the other piece on the opposite side of the photo (as you can see in the photo below)
 
 
And finally...my journaling :)
I LOVE it when a sketch allows for lots of journaling!
 
Well that's all for now folks
Thanks so much for dropping by...xx

Linda, I am so glad that you are playing with us at Keeping the best. Moreover I like to watch your trip photos, so many interesting info. First I thought it was a fish, then a bear, and now I see it is an anchor.
Love your work on the background and of course with 2Crafty.
