Basic Grey Challenge #20—Sketch.

This week it is the a sketch challenge at basic Grey challenge blog.
Here is the sketch.

It is basically a card sketch but I wanted to make a layout using this card sketch.
Wanted to do something different.lol!!!
I always want to do something different.
I hate repetition unless it is on a layout or on the wall or garden, which creates an impact.
Thats why I hate ironing. Such boring repetitive job!!

Anyway, Here is my take on the sketch

I have used red card stock as the base and
other papers used here are from Basic Grey –Recess, Bittersweet and Stella Ruby papers
All of them are matted with black paper to highlight their colors.
I normally do not matt papers for a layout
but there is no right or wrong in scrap booking.
And I think it look good!
I have used lots of stamped images on the layout as embellishments.
I stamped the clock stamp from Heidi Stamp on the layout
but the start, arrow and text are stamped on pattern paper and cutout.
Chipboard brackets and tag pieces are inked.
Alphas from Basic Grey Bittersweet range.

Thanks for the sketch.
I loved making this layout using this sketch.
One of my favorite layout.

Vicki Bailey had passed on this challenge from her blog.
I have to publish the 6th photo from the 6th folder on my computer.
OMG!!! was a bit nervous when looking for it.

This photo was taken by Siddarth at Baha’i Temple in chicago using mobile phone.
So the photo is not very clear. there is myself, my DH and my BIL in the photo.

Thanks Vicki. Had fun.lol!!
