A Layout For Karen

Good Evening Yall! I finished up this layout today and wanted to share. This one is doing double duty for me. First, I am using it for this week's sketch challenge on Unscripted Sketches. I used their sketch as my jumping off point, but it really kinda took on a life of it's own as I scrapped. If you would like to jump in on this fun sketch challenge, visit the US blog:

Second, I am using it for Cristal's Cinco De Mayo Challenge on Treasured Scrapbooking. She asked us to do a layout and use 'fives' in it. I have numbers 1-5, 5 rub-ons, a 5 letter title, 5 brads, 5 different sheets of paper, and my ribbon loops up 5 times. Also, this layout is a tribute to on of my bff's, KarenB. She is such a sweetheart and I am so glad we finally got to meet at the Just Scrappin' Scrappy Retreat this past April. I also included some stitching, chipboard, Stickles glitter glue, and used my Fiskars Apron Lace punch. I used the Cricut Storybook cartridge for my title. Here it is:

I tried to turn up the opening of the pleats for some extra dimension. I hope you can tell.


Thanks for droppin' by! I hope you all have a fabulous week! Take care! Hugs!
Pin It!
