Elle's Studio Sketch Thursday

My first official appearance on the Elle's Studio blog is today. Along with Kimberly I worked on this week's sketch challenge which is presented every Thursday by Waleska. (You can see the sketch based on one of Keshet's pages right here.) I made 2 pages - the first one - wasn't sure if I liked it...this is attempt #2:
My page is made mostly with materials from the Studio Calico Glee Club kit from a few months ago. I added the white cardstock, the Amy Tan washi tape & the October Afternoon Flower Sack shapes from another kit's add on. I turned the sketch to use a vertical photo but wound up using 3 small horizontals.

Here are my close ups. On this one you can see the blue striped border of the Winter Large Journaling Card I used and a small pennant from Handmade Layers Birthday set. Also, the white tag that the title is from Little Snippets:
Here I layered 2 smaller tags on top of that big journaling card mentioned above. I typed my journaling onto strips because I know me - writing in a wide open space like that was bound to be a great big mess:
I swore off butterflies a few months ago - and here's one now with a small date tag:
My favorite things about these tags is how they add the illusion of stitching & dimension without the bulk. You can check out the sketch and Kimberly's page on the Elle's Studio blog today.If you link up an inspired project you could win a gift certificate to shope Elle's!

fyi...Here are all the Elle's items I used on this page:

It's the 12th - are you taking your pictures for Ella's Take Twelve? It is pouring here so that means it will be the point & shoot for my January 12 photos. I'll share my dozen over the weekend.
