The Scrapbook Store | August Sketch...

Hi Everyone!  Just sharing with you the new August sketch for The Scrapbook Store.  It has been designed by the fabulously talented Melinda Spinks and I think I pretty much followed it exactly!  *grin*  If you would like to join in, share your layouts in the gallery here.





"The Cow & The Car"

products used: cs - Kaisercraft, kraft, DCWV; pp - My Mind's Eye: Collectables; Jillibean Soup/Soup Staples II; alpha - Jillibean Soup; other - Studio Calico wood veneer, Greatest View sequins, MME enamel dots, embroidery thread, vellum, mist, Kaisercraft ink; tools - sewing machine, photo corner die, typewriter.

 


 

I had quite a bit of journaling to go along with this layout but I couldn't really find a suitable area to place it on the front, with all of that hand stitching.  I eventually settled with typing it up on my typewriter and adhering straight to the back of the page.  In hindsight, I should have made a mini file folder to slip under the photos, but having the journaling placed on the back works for me too!  LOL!  At least we will still know the story that goes along with this odd title! *grin*
 
As for the hand stitching... sigh.. It must be a side effect from all the school dance costumes I've been sewing of late!  :)  Thanks for visiting..x

You know, I don't think I've ever joined in the challenge over at the Scrapbook store, but I might try to give it a go if I have time...not that you needed to know that! And hand stitching....blurgghhhh! Dunno how you could be bothered doing so much:):) Looks GREAT, tho!!!! And I just did a page today with a pile of writing on the back for the very same reason!!!!

What an adorable page! Seeing all of your back stitching reminds me of my stitchery days... many hours sitting doing cross stitch projects. I don't do much stitching on my pages and should. I love Melinda's sketch as well. I may have to give this a try.
