Simple Sketches #22!

Hi there!

Simple Sketches is back with a new 3-picture sketch today! 

I made a layout about our visit to Flora Holland last summer, the biggest auction seller of flowers in the world. It's a huge place... an area equivalent to 400 soccer fields! They sell over 20,000 varieties of flowers and plants, and sell 12.5 billion of them every year! We visited while they were auctioning off flowers and preparing them to ship everywhere... it was very cool to see! (not the most scenic pictures though! ;) The title means: Flowers in Transit by the Milions!

Go check out the rest of the DT reveal for sketch #22 here! I hope you'll join us and try this sketch out!

Have a scrappy week!


Simple Skeches #20!


Sketch #20 is up at Simple Sketches today! It's a 3-photo sketch featuring square photos.

I used three photos but changed their format. I also changed up the paper layering a bit. I went for some Basic Grey again, this time using the "Curio" collection for a vintage look. I added some pleated ribbon and lace, metal embellies colored with alcohol inks, a vintage-looking button from Making Memories, flowers and a beaded pin (actually a cocktail pin from the dollar store!).

These are photos of my dad and his brother, along with four cousins. The original photo was taken in 1940 (my dad was two years old; the one at the right on the picture). They recreated it in 1976, then again in 2013, at a family reunion celebrating the year when three of them turned 75. There were a lot of laughs while we directed this "recreation"!

Go check out what the other DT members did for sketch #20 here and link up your layout if you want to give the sketch a try! We'd love to see your take on it!

Happy scrapping!
