Mood Designer Fabrics

Hello scrappy friends and happy Monday to you!
Today I have my last DT layout for Nuts About Sketches.  My term has come to an end.  Its a bittersweet feeling but I'm ready to enjoy the rest of my summer without the stress of completing my sketches.  It was a fun run!

I am a HUGE fan of Project Runway and when visiting NYC last fall it was a must to visit Mood Designer Fabrics!  Oh my goodness, the moment I entered I was just full of excitement and I instantly got the chills!  It was such a cool experience!
For this layout the background paper is by Studio Calico and most of the embellishments are from the Mood store!  The shipping tag, black business card, mini rewards card, the buttons, the piece of fabric under the top photo and "designer fabrics" was cut from their shopping bag!  That's one way to use it all up! 

Here are a couple close ups...

When putting this layout together it brought me back to that day!  Ohh so much fun!!
Before I forget, here is this weeks sketch I followed.  Join in if you can!

Well, that is it for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Enjoy your day!
Happy scrapping!

Chicago Willis Tower

Hello scrappy friends and happy Monday to you!

Today I have my DT layout for Nuts About Sketches...

This is my daughter and I in Chicago braving 'The Ledge' at the Willis Tower (aka Sears Tower).  It looks scarier than it is.  Its such an awesome site!  If you have never been, I highly recommend it whenever you are in Chicago.  You will not regret it, but make sure its a clear day.

For this layout I used a mix of items from my monthly scrapbook kits that I subscriber to.  One being Little Red Scrapbook and the other, Studio Calico.  Both kit clubs are fantastic!  So many fun goodies!

Lets take a closer look for more detail...

Like I said, so many fun goodies to play!

Before I forget, here is this weeks sketch to follow at Nuts About Sketches.  It challenges you to use a large photo!  It has been a long time since I've scrapped a photo this size.  If you can, give it a try!

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!
