28 Sketches - Days 4 and 5

The sketch for Day 4 lent itself well to a grouping of photos of Mallory at one month old. I used cardstock from Club Scrap's Lotus Pond kit with accents from another oldie kit called Tiny Treasures. 
And here's a close up photo of some of the details: inked doily and buttons. Inspiration for these clusters goes to May Flaum and Shimelle Laine. All cardstock edged with Adirondack SnowCap Dabber.

For the Day 5 sketch, I continued my journey in New Zealand with photos from our first day in that country. The layout is built on a Recollections paper collection called Union Square which I believe is unique to Michael's. I was tickled to find the sheet which says Great Southern since this is just about as far south as I'll ever be. I am really enjoying the scrapping of this trip from long ago. Reading the diary and looking at the photos is bringing back so many good memories. This layout had enough going on, being so text-heavy and with all that sparkle, that I didn't feel any further embellishment was necessary. Thanks for looking.

The layout for Day 6 is on my table awaiting text and a bit of embellishment. I still can't believe I'm keeping up with this, although I'm a piker compared to other students of this class who will have layouts for Day 7 up already before I even get out of bed in the morning. Oh, I should repeat here that it's a class from Big Picture Classes called 28 Days of Sketches. And for my friend who asked what I listen to when scraping, here's a link.


  1. You are really keeping up! The baby layout is so sweet, and buttons? Buttons! And doilies, just the thing for a baby girl.
    The paper for New Zealand is great, just the right touch.
    Of course you listen to that ;-)

  2. Loving the LOs Jen. The doily and buttons are so sweet for Mal's LO. How fun the NZ scrapping is bringing back memories of what must have been an awesome trip. Can't wait to see #6:)

    I'm impressed with your keeping up like this. I'd still be looking at #1 on my desk, LOL.
