I'm going to be super swamped with schoolwork this coming week and the week after, so I'll be taking a little bit of a blogging break during that time. I did sneak in some time today to work on a layout for the February sketch challenge on the Crate blog. The fun sketch was designed by Emily Pitts and I loved seeing all the different ways the DT interpreted it in their examples. Here's my take on it:
afé, we decided to explore the vintage shops in the area. I've never really been vintage shopping before, so seeing all the cool stuff in the stores was really fun. The main picture is of my sister and these cute teapots we found...the mini picture is just one my mom took of me and my sister browsing the store.
I did do some creative interpretation on the sketch, but I still followed its basic design. I decided to pull out the reds and orange shades from the colors of the wall in the picture, and I threw in some blue because of my sister's striped shirt. I wish I had a lot of Restoration to play with, because the vintage feel of the collection would have been perfect, but I don't own much of it. So I dug through my older SC kits and my stash and pulled out some stuff from the Brook, Pink Plum, and School Spirit collections that would complement the two pp sheets of Restoration that I own, lol!
Okay, that was a lot of rambling for one layout, heehee. Hope your weekend has been lovely so far!
