Scrap Happy Sketch

Happy Friday, all! Kelly and Laurie are off to their weekend crop! I can't wait to see everything that they get done. I am sure they will be sharing with us when they get back.

In the meantime, my friend, Lain of Scrap Happy, had a challenge to use a sketch that I decided to try. I loved using this sketch for this picture of my family on the Expedition Everest ride. We are the four in the back of the car. Notice how tightly I am hanging on to my poor little guy - I didn't want him flying out of the seat! The little journaling flags worked great for listing out bullet points about the ride and what we thought of it. I replaced the title circles with little tags from Leaving Prints that I have had in my stash forever. (I am trying so hard to use some stuff up and not buy!) The gears were from Oriental Trading and the metal snowflake is Tim Holtz.. I even found some Making Memories rub on letters in my stash for the word "Expedition"! 

If you have a chance, check out Lain's other site, Layout A Day. She has a great event coming up in February called LOAD213 (LayOut A Day - Feb 2013). It is a no-pressure, fun month where Lain gives a prompt every morning to get you scrapping. You can use the prompt to kick off a LO or go in whatever direction you want. No pressure to actually get a LO done every day, but if you do, there are usually some fun things in store! I did part of her LOAD512 last year in May, but couldn't finish it because of a family emergency. I determined to get a boat LOAD of LOs done this time! Come join us, if you can!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
