Sketches in Thyme Thursday Takes #56

Hello Blog Land!! I’ve been seriously behind on my blog lately! Back to school has definitely kicked my butt, and we also had company for 4 or 5 days (and they slept in my scrap room, so totally no time for scrappin lately!) But we had such a great time catching up with hubby’s lifelong best friend and his family! They have a brand new little 3 month old baby and I was in heaven playing with him! He totally made me think that I’m not done having babies yet!

Anyhoo, it’s Thursday, so you know what that means! Another fab sketch from Sketches In Thyme!! I am soooo lovin this one!!

I love how many pics you can fit into this sketch, or if you just want to use one, you could totally use some fun embellies on the side!! The versatility of this sketch rocks!!

Sorry for the horrible picture. I tried to get my photo done in daylight today, but I ran out of time and before I knew it, it was dark…so flash I went and tried not to shine on my photos!

I channelled my inner Tim Holtz for this layout and made some super fun and grungy tags! I put a few different colors of distress ink on my splat matt and sprayed some water on it to make droplets. Then I smushed the tags onto them to see what happened, dried them with my heat gun, stamped them with my (autographed Tim Holtz stamp set hehehe) and this is how they turned out! Pretty sweet eh?!  I must say that I’m pretty happy with the way this layout turned out! Now it’s your turn!! Take this sketch and run with it and see what you come up with!! You have until the end of the month and our sponsor this month is Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker!!!

Also, don’t forget to head over to Creative Accents Challenges and join our 1,2,3 challenge!!

Super, fantastic tags, Sarah! And your layout is fantastic! I LOVED that there were so many pics (or a few less, if desired) on this one, too! Woohoo!
