Thursday Sketch with October Afternoon

Hey all!  How's it going?  Are any of you all getting ready for CHA?  It is right around the corner.  I've been busy working on some things.  I won't be going, but you might see some of my projects there.  :)   

I thought I would come by to share a layout that I made for the October Afternoon blog using a sketch by Jill Sprott.   


I think Jill had designed this sketch around two photos, but what I saw was one large photo with title across the center.  So I ran with that idea.  Here is what I came up with:

I took a photo of the view from my plane ride home from my recent vacation, and I thought it would go perfectly with the Boarding Pass collection.  I decided to push the title down a bit, so it didn't cover up the view in my photo.

I used the Shapes Stickers, Chip 'n Stick chipboard, Alpha Stickers, Mini Market Stickers, Label Stickers, and Tin Pins for the title border. 

I also added a few buttons from the Schoolhouse collection. 

I am totally loving the colors and patterns in this collection, along with all of the fun embellishments!

You can see the awesome layout Jill did with the sketch here at the OA blog.

Well, it is time for me to hit the hay.  But, I will be back soon to share some of my CHA projects with you.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
