I love the absolute simplicity of this sketch, with the 2 large photos, and minimal embellishing - just up my alley!!

And now for my layout:

I turned the sketch 90 degrees as I had these 2 portrait orientation photos I really wanted to scrap.  I chose the base paper from Kaisercraft as I thought the woodgrain was a great match with the basketball court.   Did I mention minimal?  Yep, that is exactly what this layout is :)

Why not head on over to Sketches in Thyme and enter the challenge - you have a chance to win a prize pack of American Crafts diecuts and chipboard stickers.

thanks for stopping by today -let me know what you think??

Sunny Day Crafting

Hello Scrappy Friends

My final project for this term at Sunny Day Crafting is live on the blog.  The challenge this week was Z = Zebra, and I found this gorgeous sticker on a Kaisercraft sticker sheet from an old collection - Party Animals.  He is so cute, I just had to fussy cut him and use him :)

I made a card, a very simple card at that!  I used a Martha Stewart doily as the base, added some stickers, enamel dots and a wood veneer butterfly, and embossed my sentiment with Lindy's Stamp Gang  Purely White embossing powder. 

I want to take this opportunity to thank Janis for having me on the DT at Sunny Day Crafting for this term and urge you all to check out the weekly challenges which are loaded each Wednesday

thanks for stopping by today - please let me know what you think :)

I will be back later in the week with a reveal for Scrap Plezier..
