Have you seen......

.....issue 56 of the Scrapbook magazine, out this week?  
  My contribution was to the activity pack.
I was asked to design a sketch and create 2 layouts to show how different they can be when the starting point is the same. The task didn't come too easily, however I enjoyed the challenge and used some of my favourite papers!

" Cute in Boots" uses October afternoon, and I did some hand stitching with Bakers Twine. 
I didn't use a single piece of Bazzill cardstock, which is very unusual for me.

I didn't have the right colours to match the photo in the " All Aboard"  layout, so tried a different approach.
I simply chose all black and white patterns from Echo Park, and added some small kraft coloured accents, instead of converting the photo to black and white - which is what I would normally do !

Here's the magazine and article showing the sketch,

All the supplies are available at my local scrapbook shop, which is also on line at

Thanks for stopping by
