This week the sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog is by one of my fave layout-makers...DT member, Laurie Schmidlin! I am always in awe of how she incorporates such cool elements into her cards so seamlessly!
I really wanted to use My Island this week because that's where I am headed today! We are probably driving to New Jersey as you read this blog post. Off to visit my sister and her family for a week, yippee! There may not be any palm trees on Long Beach Island, but at least there is sand and surf :)
I turned Laurie's sketch so I could make the vertical panels fit.
The blue chevron paper is from My Mind's Eye "Vanity Fair" and the orange dots from Lily Bee's Double Dutch collection.
Stamped the little beach hut, sky, sand dune, palm tree, and sentiment in light colors, cut them out with the Rectangles Small Nesties set, and inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink. See that teeny blue button? I noticed that it had text on it after I glued it down. Guess what it says? B.U.M., hee! Perfect for the beach bum that I am going to turn into this week!
