I Love Summer

Happy April Fool's Day! Hope it's been a fun one for you! Well, I'm not fooling around when I say that I'm way behind in the scrapping department. But good news is that the March 27th sketch done by Leah was just the one to do this layout of the grandkids in the pool last summer.

It sure was fun tearing up some paper. I hadn't done that for awhile, so when I look at a sketch and it's included, it's a good reminder for me to try it again. I love the look of torn paper.  I used a fun line from Carta Bella called Summer Lovin' to do this layout.  I really liked the fun patterns in this line.

Hope you have some time to give the sketch a try. Make sure to link up on the side bar!  Until next time....

Valley of the Temples

Good morning friends: it's Eli from Scrap-colors. Today I show you the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I have no other words to define it. Warm colors, steeped in magic, absolute silence. It seems to go back in time.
We could not but make us a photo together in a place so!
And here we are, we three women of the family, in one of the rare photos all together. A little untrimmed for hot but happy.
The sketch is that by Leah, you can find HERE. I liked very much and I wanted to use a different style but this image came to my hand and then I decided for the classic.

I worked the background with a stamp Florilèges, repeated along the length. The same brand the other stamps (written and tickets). The papers instead are by Carta Bella to which I added some old scraps.

I also reused the circles forward by edge processing to which I added sequins and drops Glimmer Glaze.

 Finally, just some wood embellishments that were fine.

Every Summer...

Hello and thanks for joining me, Rosie, for the latest sketch reveal. There is sooo much inspiration in this fabulous sketch!

{Patterned paper, die cut pages, overlay, brads, chipboard, stickers-Simple Stories "Good Day Sunshine"; paper clip Simple Stories "I Am"; ledger paper-unknown; grey print-Studio Calico Basics; card stock-Bazzill}

I loved the lined paper in the sketch and found this ledger pattern in my stash, I placed it on a piece of Bazzill dotted card stock. It was great to pull out a punch I haven't used in awhile, that's the EK Success notebook edge punch. The die cut page I used for the layout title is one of the SN@P die cut pages in the Good Day Sunshine collection along with the woodgrain pattern.
This 'holepunched' paper is also a die cut page from the same collection. You have a good look at the overlay I used with the hexagons layered over the woodgrain page.
I handcut a tag to hold my journaling and finished it off with a brad. The also punched the edge on the tag which creates a visual triangle with the other punched edges.

I hope you'll find some time to give this sketch a try and link us up by clicking on the current sketch on the sidebar!

Thanks for stopping by :)
