2Sketches4You, #20 - Laura
I discovered 2 Sketches 4 You a couple of weeks ago and I’m hooked! Here’s my take on this sketch:
More fun than a barrel of monkeys!
As a former CTMH consultant, 3/4 of my product at home is all CTMH… this card is no different! The stamps are by CTMH, Chipboard from CTMH, the embossing powder is Crystal Blue by CTMH, the cardstocks are Cocoa, Crystal Blue, Barn Red and Taffy by CTMH. The patterned paper is by Love, Elsie. As for embellies, I love the little Bitty Brads by CTMH; ribbon is from the Dollar Spot at Target and I’ve used a button with Waxy Flax. I colored in my monkey with inexpensive colored pencils — which work great until I can afford those Copics!
Had fun at my semi-annual scrapbooking retreat this past weekend… Here are a couple of my creations. I made some Thanksgiving cards with leftover Target Dollar Spot paper, vintage images from Crafty Secrets, cute mini-folders from Rusty Pickle and Stamps and Cardstock from Close To My Heart. I also pulled a vintage button and ribbons from my stash.
I scanned these and the buttons popped the cards up enough from the scanner to make them a little blurry but the images are crisper IRL! Thanks for looking 🙂
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it is a pretty big deal when you get to travel from Minnesota to Salt Lake City to attend General Conference. It’s not something most folks get to do very often, and it was the first time for me. Kind of comparable to going to Rome or Mecca! What made it especially nice aside from the spiritual feast, is that I got to attend with my husband Peter, my daughter Shannon and son-in-law Daren, and my eldest son Josh. Shannon and Daren live about 4 hours away from Salt Lake, outside of Idaho Falls. Josh attends university at BYU.

When I made this layout I did something I never do — I bought paper and chipboard embellishments at the Dollar Spot at Target! I really liked the Leaf paper so I thought I’d give it a try — I don’t know why I waited so long to take advantage of a bargain! Everything is Target, with the exception of Tulip CS from Close To My Heart, and the titling is stamped with Charm Lowercase Alphabet and Delightful Alphabet, also from Close To My Heart, in Chocolate, Tulip and Juniper. I also used some ribbon from my stash.
Don’t be like me and turn your nose up at the Target Dollar Spot — big mistake!
