Usually when I'm scrapbooking I start with pictures and then find some patterned paper, figure out my layout and finally add the bling. But once in a while, when I'm super busy (which happens sometimes) or when I just can't get started, I go to the web. I look for sketch ideas or challenges or even other layouts. Today was one such day :)
So, I surfed. I came across OnceUponaSketch and found a fun and simple sketch.
Well, it was a bit more layered than I wanted for my little man's birthday but the basic idea got me going. Then I went to SoulScrappers and found a Cookin' Up Creations challenge that required the use of banners, buttons and twine. I put them together and...voila!
OK, I didn't have twine because it got used at camp but I had gold thread. I'm an improviser :)
Have a great weekend!
