SSD #53 and another crazy sale!


Well helloooooooo my dear sweet blog peeps!! It feels like so long since I’ve been here. I almost forget what to do!

So, how was your Thanksgiving week, assuming you celebrated it, that is? Ours was so fabulous! The weather in Georgia was perfect, the kids all had a great time, and us adults talked until the wee hours of the morning and laughed until we cried. Fun memories!!
The only thing that was bad was the traffic. Uugghh!!! A trip that would normally take 12 hours tops took us 14 hours one way and 15 the other! we vowed to never travel the day before Thanksgiving or the Sunday after ever again! Ever!!!

So today is Tuesday, but of course you already knew that, but anyway. That means it’s time for another fun and fabulous sketch from Skipping Stones Design.

Today we have this sketch by the talented Shannan Teubner.

Since the sketch this time was more square I decided I’d do a scrapbook page with the sketch instead of a card. Here’s my take.

I took a few liberties with this sketch and stretched it a bit, but hopefully you can tell that I used the sketch as my starting point. I used the Garden Stamp Kiss set from Skipping Stones Design for this page.

The color scheme on this layout was inspired by a photo in a magazine I was paging through at Barnes & Noble recently. I didn’t have my idea book with me at the time so I quickly jotted down the idea in a shopping list I still had in my purse from a recent trip to the grocery store. I liked the addition of the gold with the melon and aqua because it had such a fun vintage feel to it.

Now on to the rest of the design team girls. Check out their blogs to see what each of them have in store for you today.

    Your traffic story reminded me of the year it took 4 hours (in ice and snow) to drive the last hour of a five hour trip. It was the Sunday after Thanksgiving, and we’ve never traveled on that day since! Great layout.

I love hearing from my readers! Thanks for your comment!
