sketch thursday at Elle's studio.

so today being Thursday is sketch day on the Elle's studio blog.  Guess what?!  My layout was chosen as the inspiration for the sketch--I was beyond excited and surprised!  So without further ado here is the sketch and the layout it was based on:
my layout:

 closeups:
 if you have followed my blog at all you know that I am a linear scrapbooker--everything is straight.  I decided just to tilt it a bit and was HAPPY with the result, I even snuck in some washi tape a long the top!  I am BOUND and determined to use up my stash (I've got some cute stuff!)  Loved that I could make a 4th of July page without the traditional red, white, and blue.  My FAVORITE tag on this page is the summer snapshot details--it's a very large tag making it almost a perfect matte for smaller photos.  So if you want to play a long with the sketch the details are HERE.  Your layout could be chosen to win an Elle's studio gift certificate!

Today has been again--BUSY.  Freshmen had a tour of the school & a physical to play sports, boys are playing at the cousin's house (I'm coming now!) and I've been to the gym.  I'm also pretty exhausted being woken up at 4:30am by a doggie who was SUPPOSED to be in her kennel but that SOMEONE let out to sleep with them.  Once I'm awake that's it, I'm awake! The rest of the day is relatively quiet THANK goodness maybe I'll sneak in a power nap! :)
Thanks for the visit, make it a good one today!

Love your layout and the sketch!
