Feeling Crisp & Cool

Hi everyone, Cathy here with a layout I created using awesome products from The Crafty Pickle!  My layout was inspired by one I saw created by Lilith Eeckels.  I loved the way she cut the large woods paper into 3rds to create interest and divide up the image.  From there I used a variety of embellishments, including flair badges and sequins from the The Crafty Pickle and stamps from Close to my Heart.  I just love how it turned out and I am so happy with my products from The Crafty Pickle.  The flair badges are just fantastic and who doesn't love sequins right?

better late than never!

So I know I'm a bit late, but I've been having a bit of a hectic week!  Anyway, on November 1st the sketch went live from Sketch 'N' Scrap and here it is!

So here is my take on the sketch!

For this layout I delved deep into my stash and grabbed some embellishments dating back to at least 2010, and possibly even older.  I have to say it felt great to use up some of that older stash, especially with all the new stuff I get I sometimes forget to go back into that older stuff.  I know some of it I will never use, and will probably donate, but some of it can be a real treasure!
