Sketchy Thursday... On A Wednesday

Hi everyone,
I am feeling a bit under the weather today. Body aches and exhausted... possibly building into a cold or flu. Hope not but everyone around me has been sick so it would be a miracle otherwise. So I came home from work a bit earlier and decided to work on a challenge while having some relaxation time.

I only just saw this weeks Sketchy Thursday's sketch... which is due in tonight. I thought it was great and decided to give it a go. Its another wedding layout (surprise!) and its got a lot of me on it! I will do something similar with photos of my hubby from the big day when I find another great sketch so they can go together as a double layout.

On this layout I have included my very first hand made flower, which I made a few weeks ago. It was really just a practice one but I decided it might be nice to include it on a layout. The colour scheme worked well. I also have a couple of silver heart 3D embellishments and some cardstock stickers. The shape behind the central photo is actually two Tim Holtz sizzix dies... Baroque... stuck together to create a bigger shape. It was one of the items in my latest Scrapbooking Haven purchase.

Whenever I finish a layout, I always go show my husband and he always says something typically male like 'It's good'. Today he asked where all the layouts are going to go. I thought that was kind of obvious since he's seen me working on travel albums in the past... but obviously not lol I asked him if he wanted them all over the wall and he didn't say no LOL I think the basketball was distracting him though. One of these days I should do a layout based on his extremely time consuming and sometimes expensive hobby... his band. I bet he'll have more to say about that one.

Thanks for visiting :-)

It's another stunning LO, Holly. Your photos are so beautiful I'm not surprised you want to scrap them all.
Love the flower.

Oh yah...Mr Dunnit loves what I do because I love what I do. He doesn't love my lack of straight edges, jaunty angles and uncontrolled placement. But it's OK, after he's been forced to admire, I put it in an album and he never has to look agaiN! Gorgeous LO, beautiful pic. Hope you feel better quickly!

Thank you all for your very lovely comments. This was such a great sketch so the inspiration came easy. I wonder what will inpsire me today... since I'm having a sick day from work but feeling quite a bit better already. Oops!

Great page! I love the little hearts! And I'd love to see a 'band' layout. I have many friends in bands, I know how expensive and busy they are, but never seen them in a layout. It would be cool! :)

Lovely flower you made :D, wonderful layout. I have a couple of 12 x 12 picture frames so I can swap out layouts from the book and onto the wall. It's fun to see them out and about. TFS :D #67

Holly, you look stunning! Beautiful layout too, lots of lovely elements on there. I look forward to seeing the husband page now :-)

HarmonySweetpea said...

Thanks everyone. So true about the band layouts Diana. Not sure I've seen one before either.

Ciara, that's so sweet. My husband looked quite spunky too so deserves some scrapbook attention hehe

A 12 x 12 frame sounds like a good investment. Can have a different layout in it each week :-D
