Beach Day layout for Apron Strings

Quick post to get this in before the deadline.
I took full advantage of my day off to laze around in my pj's until noon, lounge around on the couch all afternoon and then zip this off before dinner.


This is for the following challenges over at Apron Strings: their 5 on Friday and Sketch on Wednesday challenges.
This is the sketch we were given (a Sketchy Thursday sketch from June 16th).


The 5 things we were to use were:
1 sheet of cardstock
1 sheet of patterned paper
1 journalling tag
1 set of buttons
something round 


In this close up you can see my buttons (Basic Grey) and one of my 'something round'.
As I was editing the pictures I noticed that I forgot a title. Doh! I will probably add it later. Not sure where though as I kind of like the layout as is. Oh, and I sprayed a little mist on my white cardstock (probably against the rules but the white looked too white!)
Supplies used: White cardstock from Michael's (12x12 Recollections Basics probably); grey and pink patterned paper is American Crafts I Do - Delphinium and Craft Fair - Rose McGrain; blue cardstock circle was from my stash; Basic Grey buttons; Jillibean Soup Journalling Sprouts - circle, brown; and the mist is Tsukineko Walnut Ink in Eucalyptus.

Well, my day off is pretty much over so I'd better post this then get a load of laundry into the dryer so my kids have clothes to wear tomorrow! See ya!

  2. I LOVED this sketch when I first saw it, but I didn't get to use it before the deadline, aww! I love how you changed it up, with the circle behind the photo and the added journaling. I really love the misting, too, it just makes the whole page look beachy. I think if you wanted to add a title, it might look good down on your pink strips at the bottom, but it looks great without, too. The photos are so beautiful, they speak louder than words!

  3. P.S. I just thought of this and rushed over to tell you. I think you should put this in over at Sketches in Thyme (they have an Open challenge where you can use any sketch) and Candy Shoppe Designs (they have a summer challenge going on). I have links on my last two posts, I think. Anyway, who knows, one of us might get a prize!!!
