Friday Focus

Today I'm in scrapbboking mode and playing along with Stuck Sketches?! first July Challenge.

And I'm really excited to let you all know that I've been asked to Guest Design with them for their August 1st Challenge. How brilliant is that!!! Check out how that came about HERE.

Anyhow enough of bigging myself up, here's the new sketch:

I kept looking at the sketch but couldn't make up my mind whether the frame round the sketch was part of the layout or not and looking at the DT samples there seemed to be a mix of opinions. But I decided to go with a frame and cut down the plain green and matted it on top of the diagonal paper.

I almost used this bright diagonal paper as my background but it was so in your face and distracting and I like it much better as a border.

This page will sit in my album next to this one here which has the same background paper. I don't always match facing pages, but sometimes it just feel right to and as both pages have photos taken out in the garden It seemed appropriate.

I'd been wanting to put out a tray of oats for him to explore for some time, but waited for an outside day - too much mess for indoors! So we buried the dinosaurs and looked for treasure and had a fun time. And the best bit of this play was watching my husband vacuum the lawn to pick up all the bits - no photo of that though, shame!

I made a cluster for each side of the page from three pieces of scrap paper bits and added a dinosaur and two matt sprinkle dots to each.

The title was created from die cut letters and I added a trio of stars around to further draw the eye in.

Papers: Doodlebug, Dragon Tails + scraps from my stash
Die: Lawn Fawn, Louie's ABCs
Embellishments: Doodlebug, Dragon Tails - stickers, die cuts and sprinkle dots

Thanks for looking today, it's been fun having you visit my blog.  And keep crafting!
