This week at The Studio we got to work with a sketch - with a little twist - the page had to have a monochrome color scheme. Here's what I made:
I love to work with a sketch. It makes life so much easier when you don't have to worry about where to put the parts. You can compound the ease-factor if you throw in a club kit. Then you don't have to worry about what the parts are (besides photos, of course!) Most of the materials here are from a Studio Calico kit from a few months ago - with a couple of extra items thrown in for good measure. The layout tells the story of the day our friend came to pick up some cookies he ordered from me in his airplane. We met him at our local commuter airport. The kids got to sit in the cockpit and good fun was had by all. Oh, and it was the first time anyone ever picked up a cookie order by plane. Here's a close up:
supplies: patterned cardstock: Basic Grey, Studio Calico, Girls Paperie; letters: Making Memories; frames: K & Co.; rub ons: Basic Grey; die cuts: Girls Paperie; stamp: Studio Calico; tab punch: McGill

Got a little happy 'Royal' mail this week. First up - Amanda knows I'm a little fascinated by the royal family. (I can trace this back to the wedding of Diana & Charles - I was 13 at the time and got up at the crack of dawn to watch.) With the announcement of the impending royal wedding she thought I might appreciate these little ditties:
How awesome is this? Vintage programs from the coronation of Queen Elizabeth. (Vintage + British Royals...you can't go wrong with this combo!) I am struck by the ceremony and level of detail that goes into these royal events. I am fascinated with this:
the family tree page of the royal family...cool stuff. Thank you Amanda!!!!
Also from Amanda - this time via her Scrap Rat shop - these:
2 of her newly-released, super cool stamps. I LOVE these and plan to use them today!!
