Sketchbook: Sketch #7

As I've mentioned before, I've been taking Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook class at Studio Calico
and, my goal was to keep up with the class and hopefully complete it in May.
Well, Sketch 7 was posted on Tuesday and, since I had the day off yesterday,
I was able to make a layout & a card with it.
I know I probably won't get Sketch 8 done before the end of the month
(we're off in Winnipeg today volunteering at a taekwondo tournament 
and tomorrow, our local theatre is having a Jurassic Park marathon), 
but I'm still pretty pleased with staying as caught up as I have!

I'm not allowed to post the sketch here on my blog,
but here are my projects that I made it.

Here's the layout:

It's not the best quality photo, but I love it! 
I stuck pretty closely to the sketch on this one.
The background cardstock is Bazzill Basics Classic Smooth White.
The aqua woodgrain patterned paper is American Crafts and I created
the music note patterned paper by stamping a Clearly Besotted stamp
over some Echo Park cardstock.

I added a Crate Paper tag and layered a Crate Paper chipboard frame over top.
I stamped the "bon voyage" from Papertrey Ink's Get Lost stamp set.

Here's a close-up of my journaling:

And here's the super quick card that I made using 
all pre-made embellishments & no stamping or diecutting! 
(I know! I'm pretty shocked, too!)

I reversed where the photo & sentiment were placed on the sketch,
but I'm really pleased with how it turned out!
I used a Crate Paper tag that I switched the tie it came
with for some button twine.
The flowers are all Heidi Swapp.

Thanks for looking!
