Howdy from Texas! I have some scrapbooking goodies for you today! New goodies used in this layout are marker with an asterisk (*). If you are following the VC-Rocks Blog hop, you should have landed here from Jamie's blog - if not, button above will take you there, plus there's a complete list near the bottom of the post of all 34 stops!
As an avid scrapbooker, I get sketches from a LOT of sources. Some are top secret, some are secret because I just cannot remember where they came from, some really aren't a secret because ethically i have to give credit where credit is due, and some, well, some - I just flat make up, and will be the first to admit that there's a piece from here, one from there, and a few from yonder!
The sketch for this layout is based on one from gotsketch and adapted for Stampin' Up! materials and supplies. It uses: Top Note Die, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch*, Petite Pennants Builder punch*, Lace Ribbon Border
punch*; Garden Green, Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery cardstock, and Garden Green Pattern Paper from the Regals collection, plus a bit of Whisper White cardstock. White Baker's Twine finishes it up, with a supporting cast of Tombow Multi-adhesive, SNAIL and Stampin' Dimensionals.
I must confess, I have as yet NO, as in none, not a single one, of the current alphabet sets (sigh), so I printed the lettering from My Digital Studio in Garden Green, using just a plain old font (ain't it cool!?!).
The pictures in my layout are (from left) 6.5x6.5, 4x3, 3x3, 3x5 over three that are 2x2. The journaling leads into the title. This big playground was built in my daughter and son-in-law's back yard, which I can see from my stamping area (yes, you grandmothers... be jealous... be very jealous - now, if i can just get my other daughter living that close so her babies - once she's married and has any - can just come running over to Gramcy's house, too, I'll be in tall cotton!!!!). If I had known that it only cost $200 to have that sucker assembled for you, I'd have paid it somehow so my honey and SIL didn't have to nearly kill themselves building it!
Anyway, I thank you for stopping by my stop on the hop. Below is a list of ALL the hoppers, and at the bottom a button that should take you to Patrice's blog! Enjoy the rest of the hop - you are just over halfway done now :).
