Frosted Designs # 38

Good Morning!

Today's layout is another sketch from Frosted Designs.

For some reason this one was really hard for me to do. I just couldn't come up with any ideas using a large star shape. When I finally came up with a shape I wanted to use, everything else fell into place. That is part of the reason I started using sketches in the first place, to challenge myself to do something different and to catch up on my photos! I'm happy to say I am finally caught up!! Of course I have new photo's to pick up again, but only 25 or so. :) Another surprise... this layout is NOT of my Grandson! It was of my Nephew and Dad at last year's family reunion. We've done color scheme's ever since my kids were little... so much easier to keep track of who belongs to us at the camp ground.

Planting Schoolbook: ribbon (minus the tails!) was cut @ 12.30 and decorated with stickles. Oops, I forgot to get a picture of that, sorry!

Sentimentals: both tags, the largest being cut @ 3, and then 1/4 smaller for the next sizes.

The insides of both tags were inked in sky blue pearlescent ink.
and all together...

The frame was cut from Fancy Frames, cut @ 5.58

I used my white gel pen to add "stitching"...

For my background paper I used DCWV, the Tradewinds Stack.

Some of the detailed pictures...

The finished layout...
