Think Inside the Box (& a Design Team Call!)

Happy Sunday, friends!  It's going to be a rainy day's already gloomy and wet outside.  But that's okay because we haven't had rain in forever.  We need it!  I honestly like sitting at my scrap desk listening to the rain's relaxing.

The layout I'm sharing today is one I created using Sketch #59 from My Scraps and More.  There is a new sketch every Friday, and for December's sketches, you have until January 2nd to upload and play along.  I just love how this page turned was perfect for these Elle's Studio papers!  I got them from the My Scraps should really check it out if you haven't.  Tammi offers some amazing products with great sales, and she ships super quick.  There's a 25% off code (SAVEINDEC13) going on right now!

Even though I only have two daughters, I love to use non-girly colors a lot of times.  Neither one of them are the "princess" type, so any colors will work for pictures of them.  Paige climbed into this diaper box one day, and you know I had to get some photos of it :)

I jazzed up the background with a template, modeling paste and watercolors.  Easy peasy!  The rest is paper layers and bits and pieces.  The left side of the background was already done...I just added a few pieces of washi tape, a few buttons, stamps and floss.  And I love that the journaling space was already there.

I used pop dots for my arrow (cut on my Cameo).  I love the texture of the really looks cool up close!

I tucked this button partly underneath the photo and added a Tim Holtz word sticker.  I'm kind of addicted to floss these days...

Be sure to check out the other sketches HERE on the blog.  Also, did you know there's a DESIGN TEAM CALL going on right now for the Sketch Blog?  Yep!  If you'd like to know more about it, go HERE.  You have until January 26th to apply.  I hope you do!

Thanks so much for visiting me today...have a good one!
