the Mad Hatters...

This was so much fun! I go several times a year with my girls to different hat stores...this trip was when we were away in Hawaii this past Christmas with my husband's adorable nieces are so photogenic anyway, but little Sadie was really enjoying this store AND Auntie Kristine taking so many photos of her too! It was nice to see my son Matthew getting into it too, seeing as he's usually not interested in joining me and the girls for our shopping trips throughout the year!

This week's sketch from Let's Scrap was a great fit for all these photos...and all the embellishments from my package of Pink Paislee 'Portfolio' collection worked great to jazz this page up!

I love to use my Sizzix to cut felt! and these bits are a perfect addition to add some more texture to this layout!

I added some more of those Close To My Heart wooden shapes from the 'garden collection' because I like these kinds of flowers...not the other kinds ;) and if you noticed, I had to 'make' a second letter 't' from a 'L'...pretty sneaky of me huh?!!!

Here's the sketch:

You might have also have noticed that I made this sketch work for me...make sure you use your sketches as starting off points and don't worry about every little detail...these sketches are here to help you get creative, not for you to worry about following perfectly! that is if you don't want too!!!

Thanks so much for stopping in today, I hope you have a crafty day!
