We Made the Newspaper (Lets Get Sketchy)

Welcome to the first sketch of July over at LGS!  This is my second month of being on the Design Team, and I'm having a blast!  This week's fun sketch was designed by the very talented Jenessa.

My layout features my lovely sister-in-law, and tells the story of the ball that we went to last year.  As my husband was the MC for the evening, Alana and I arrived at the ball together and had our photo taken by one of the local papers.  We totally didn't expect to end up in the paper, but much to our surprise we made the social page (which if you know me is not the attention that I seek lol)!

I made this layout with my May Paper Bakery Kit, and I'm absolutely loving the mix of product that Sarah has put together.  I just adore the Lily Bee Bokeh paper, and really wanted it to feature so I cut it large.  This layout also features Crate Paper's Maggie Holmes paper, and the DIY Ephemera pack.  I added glitter to the flower die cut, and also had a fun messy time glittering-up the frame (from Crate Paper's The Pier).  I also had fun with the heart mask that came with the new subscribers gift, I used gold acrylic paint.  The frame and gold thickers were not from the kit.

And here is the sketch:

Thanks for looking.  I can't wait to see your layouts, so do come and play along.  I love your comments and please follow my blog :)
