Almost Spring Break!

I have a few minutes before Austin gets home from school and starts Spring Break, Sierra is at track practice. But wanted to share a layout I made for the Birthday Sketch-a-thon going on at My Scraps & More. I combined Missy's sketch and twist to use a stamp on your layout along with Memorable Seasons March Challenge #6: Scrunch it up and came up with this fun layout of the kids watching a movie on our California trip:

 
I stamped the circle a few times using orange paint and a plastic lid. I also used red ink and stamped my chevron arrows. The bright orange scrunched ribbon really draws your eye to the photo!
 
Here are a few close ups:

 
I have seen other scrappers stitching over chipboard letters and love the look, but thought "my old sewing machine will never do that!" Well, I tried it and it was so easy! Guess what? You will be seeing more stitched chipboard alphas on my pages!


Here's Missy's sketch I used:



Gotta run! It's almost that time! Have a great day!
