I have a fun sketch for you today! Sketch-N-Scrap has their monthly "Inspired by" sketch today and what a beautiful one it is! Don't forget to enter your layout on the SNS blog for a chance to win a prize.
This layout was a lot of fun to put together. I dug through my stash of elements and embellishments and came up with a bunch of fun things to use on this layout. I pulled all of my banner dies and cut them out of a kraft card stock I keep on hand. Using my sewing machine I stitched the banners together then hand drew and paint splattered them for their final effect. The kraft tickets are from Maya Road and they are a lot of fun. They come stark and I stamped the #1 on them in the spirit of Thomas. The same MME stamp set had a wonderful train image so I used that on a heart I had cut out of vintage book paper. Other pieces out of my stash were the title circle which I bought on ebay some years ago and the grungy tag I made using one of Tim Holtz's techniques.
