A Jillibean sketch...

Our whole neighborhood has spotty blackouts today, thanks to that giagantic storm yesterday. Trees are down all over the place and we've got an eye on the rising tide in our crawl space. Luckily, though, electricity has not been an issue for us so far...thank goodness - I can still print photos and sew on my layouts!

Today I took a break from my Studio Calico immersion to work on the  Jillibean sketch challenge. Love the Jillibean! Here's the sketch - simple, clean, nice...
Here's what I made:
 
For this layout, I used Jillibean's Minestrone, Alphabet Soup, Cold Raspberry & Staples lines. I love Jillibean printed kraft cardstock, particularly the one with the white damask-y motif above - I have used it as the  background on several of my layouts. (This was my last sheet, I need to get more!) I shifted the page elements around a bit on this sketch. I relocated the title bar to the bottom, then moved  narrow element up. I also used my Martha Stewart hydrangea punches to punch the little flowers.
I also worked on the Studio Calico Sunday sketch today but not loving the outcome. I was rushing to get it done before the sun went down so I could take a decent picture of it. How lame is that? Need to work on that one some more without the unnecessary pressure!

Beautiful choice of Jillibean products and great take on the sketch. I need to get some of the white damask Kraft papers. TFS.

SO CUTE!! Love how you used the JBS & the sketch!

We were at the Circus yesteday with the CRAZY weather!! We got drenched when we left! Our town is flooded in certain areas (not our part), but they closed school for tomorrow. Guess I'll be scrapping! ;)
