Sketches in Thyme #57

I got a chance to do some scrapbooking last night :0) Life has been really full on recently and whilst it is lovely to be so trip to see Backbeat (excellent, go if you can!) my cousin's wedding (a fabulous day) general family stuff (always a pleasure) it was great to be able to retreat for a few hours.

Sketches in Thyme have come up with some awesome sketches this month using multiple photos. I used to shy away from using more than one photo on a layout but now I love it - in fact, I will deliberately take a series of photos with a scrapbook page in mind!

The photos on this layout were all of the same day and are of me (very unusual for me to scrap myself) it was such a lovely day and DH has captured my mood perfectly!

Here is the sketch:

and here is my layout:

The background paper is Basic Grey. I have stitched round the edge using the Sew and Stitch gizmo from WRMK with some of their floss. The patterned papers are old Basic Grey from a pad I found in my stash with just a few sheets left in it (I am on a mission to use up my odds and sods!) The stars are something I picked up in Hobbycraft that I was going to use on my christmas cake last year but changed my mind when I realised they had glue dots on the back! The chipboard letters are old K and Co ones and the rosette is from American Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by, I shall be back in a bit with SiT #58!
