Sunday Sketch!

I can't believe another week flew by!  We have been enjoying quality family time and lots of craziness around here.  The AC is fixed without having to invest in a whole new unit and we feel calm, cool and collected again!

It was my turn to post over at the Pink Paislee blog today (I still get giddy when I get to type that!) and I shared a sketch.  I have to say that sketches sometimes hang me up.  I get visualizations of pages and imagine how I want to use product far in advance or as I am pushing paper, so looking at a sketch can throw me off.  But I found many I like over at Sketchy Thursdays.   The circles drew me into the one I picked which is here on the Pink Paislee blog!

Here is my layout:

I made the basic layout and layered the die-cuts like I always did, but then was stuck.  So I thought of the lollipops.  Orginally they were flat and a bit boring, but then I had the thought to make them dimensional.  I just layered two same-sized circles, but I folded the top in half and popped it up.  The layout still looked flat so I decided to make my lollys shiny, like real candy.  A little diamond glaze did the trick!  It looks pretty cool in person!

Being on a team like PP, I always try to think extra creatively.  I knew I wanted journaling, but didn't want to use strips.  Thats when I remembered the rub-ons.  A bit of trimming and I had interesting and bold journaling lines!

Another layout to add to my ever growing pile.  I really need to order some albums.  I have a stack of pages sitting in my bookcase...anyone else do that too!?

Hope your weekend was great and you enjoy the last few minutes!
