Just Precious

Check this out people...I'm doing another non-morning post! What is this world coming too anyway, lol? ;) I've been scrapping today and finally got a layout done for the sketch challenge over at The Paper Bakery. It's their very first sketch and when I saw it, I knew I wanted to play along and since it's due tonight I had to get my booty in gear!




Supplies: October Afternoon Thrift Shop Paper - Great Find, Near Mint & One-Of-A-Kind; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Scattered Straw; Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch; Fiskars Heart Punch; Fiskars Butterfly Punch; Martha Stewart Heart Confetti Punch; American Crafts Lullaby Thickers - Charcoal; Basic Grey Buttons
* I apologize if the pictures are dark or if the colors are a little off...the sun has already gone down so they're the best I can do for now!

This is actually my third attempt at the sketch this week, lol. Do you ever do that? I knew what pictures I wanted to use right away because I had these from our beach vacation last Summer and looooooove them, and there are just the right number for the sketch so it was perfect! The papers though? Not easy to decide on at ALL. It just took me a little while to find the right ones I guess, although I should have known to pull out my October Afternoon all along! You can never go wrong with some October Afternoon friends, believe me. ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night...
