That third layout...

Hello again! This is my second post for the day so if you came looking for my altered notebook, please see the post below. ;) I wanted to share the third layout I did using the awesome sketch posted over at the Authentique blog that I posted about yesterday. This one is definitely my favorite!

Supplies: Authentique Journey Paper - Promenade & Jaunt; My Mind's Eye Bohemia Bluebird "All Boy" Paper - Blue; American Crafts Cream Cardstock; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Studio G Stamp; Papertrey Ink Stamp Set - Happy Trails; Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches; I-Rock; I-Rock Clear Gems

I am soooooo loving the way this turned out. So much so that I kind of wish it was for me, lol! I'm making an album for my mother-in law (shhhh, it's a secret...thankfully she doesn't read my blog!) full of layouts about each of her three kids and their families. This page will be either the first page in the album or the last one...I haven't decided yet. She is such an amazing grandmother and absolutely LOVES her grandbabies. It's tough on her too because she lives in Texas and they are spread out from Washington to NC. I'm making this album for her so that when she's missing us all, she can look through it and hopefully feel a little closer to us. :)

Anyway, sorry that turned into a book! I'm very chatty today so you can feel free to ignore me, lol. I'll be back tomorrow with a new card for sassy Lil' Sketches so see you then!


I'm entering this project in the following challenges...
