Sketch #46, Unscripted Sketches


I have been totally loving the new sketch designs we have at Unscripted Sketches!!! They can certainly be adapted to a card or, in my case, a layout.

The starting point was the sketch. In trying to keep up with my goal of 2 layouts a month, this week I really wanted to scrap. Next came the photos. These were taken in 2008, and my girls had an absolute blast down at the ocean (hon). We hadn't been since DD was 3- many years have passed and little did I realize that the beach was only 1 hour away from our home. And.... we have been here almost 11 years. How sad am I?

I really wanted to capture her contemplation at the shore line. When I see the ocean, all of my problems go away. Why? Well, how big is the ocean? How many grains of sand on the beach? My problem is put into perspective, just when I hear the waves and smell the salt. Ahhh.....

I created my own background with 2 sets of stamps: Bobunny and CTMH. The circles are colored to match the sand and the water. I used CTMH cardstock: black and desert sand. BoBunny patterned paper, stickers and Anna Griffin seashell. Jolees fish stickers too.
