Last night I sat down to choose a challenge to work on.
I selected this one from The Memory Nest:
There is a great story to the photo - this was the night John (Kathryn's brother) asked Sally to marry him. He had all her friends and family in bleachers there and he did a 'mic' check and had everyone repeat what he was saying. What a big exciting surprise.
Right next to the photo I saw a package of papers that I was trying to finish up that were exactly that color combo.
I rotated the sketch 1/4 turn clockwise.
I used a selection of embossing folders and I embossed (and de-bossed) my triangles. (yes, the de-bossing was an accident - I didn't watch what side up I put the paper in but I thought it would be a good look for a change!)
I added a thankful quote.
And here it is:
I am also entering this layout in a site I just discovered - 3 Scrappy Boys in their 4th Anniversary Celebration sketch challenge which calls for flipping your sketch!
And now - another message - Paper Secrets is having a 45% off sale through November 30, 2013 and a great giveaway of a $20 gift certificate to the shop! Head there and get some great bargains - I did!
Come back later as I plan to be busy creating later today!
