Little Shop of Sketches # 87

This is my first sketch from Little Shop of Sketches (LSS) as a DT.  As soon as Tanya Leigh sent us the Sketch, I didn't waste time to crack my brain out on how to execute the sketch.  Started with the pictures on hand, base cardstock, some coordinating embellishments, a little toss around, up and down. . .  and voila, I got my first sketch with LSS!

I have been staring and examining my creation for days thinking if I got everything right.  I suddenly was unsure of my scrapping potentials.  I wanted my first LO to be perfect and I was uncertain if it already passed the DT standards, if there is such a thing.  Call it beginner's paranoia or something.  To stretch my paranoia a little further, I even made a second LO so I would have something to compare my first LO with. Unfortunately, things just got worse.  I was even more uncertain which LO would I submit that would best pass for a DT work.  Hay! When my exhaustion got the better of me, I just went with my instinct and submitted my LO.

This is Sketch 87

My take:

Title: Always Grateful to Spend Time Together

I just love the October Afternoon Country Fair pages, it provided the cheapest floral embellies.  I did some rolling of ribbon over a raffled orange ribbon.

Supplies: CS Scenic route; October Afternoon Country Fair; Maya Road Sheer Calendar; Maya Road Sheer Journal; AC Thickers; My Little Shoe Box Mini Alpha Sticker; Hambly Studios Kraft Stickers; TH Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade and Broken China; Maya Road Maya Mists Hydrangea Blue; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists Harvest Orange and Pineapple; Kaiserkraft metal key; Tattered Anges Glimmer Glass Regal; Ribbons

And this is my LO that didn't make it:

Please head on to LSS and join us with this wonderful sketch.  Go to LSS ning site to upload your layout with mention on the sketch # you used.  Thank you.
