Canvas Layout

Hi Crafters! 

Today I am sharing another 12x12 Canvas layout I created using

This layout is about my In-laws celebrating their amazing 50th year anniversary.  They are such an inspiration and something to look forward too!!  

Here's some close ups on my layouts:

I also used Linnie Blooms Stitched Stamp Sets and Mesh. 

Here's what the Linnie Blooms 12x12 page looks like before I started creating on it.  It is two pieces of canvas sewn together with recycle paper in the middle.

Happy Scrappin'! 

Sketches In Thyme sketch #152 reveal! :)

Hello All!!

Today is my sketch reveal over at Sketches In Thyme!   Here's my layout based on my sketch:

and here is the sketch:

I rotated the sketch for a different look.  I used an Echo Park mini kit that I have been wanted to use for a couple of years now. - Yay!!! I love when I dig through my stash and use up something older! :) 

For more information on this sketch challenge and the other June sketch challenges, please see the Sketches In Thyme blog!

Happy Scrapping!
