Family Game Night Scrap Our Stash October Sketch Challenge

It's time for an awesome Sketch +3 Challenge over at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!!  This one is so versatile and a great way to use up some of your favorite scraps and stuff in your stash!!

I've had theses papers in my stash for some time....waiting for just the right photo(s) and layout.  I love the tag in this sketch - as tags are my favorite way to include a little bit of journaling in my layouts.  For the +3 part of the challenge, I used:
1. Desert - base page
2. Envelop - that I actually made out of one of the papers
3. French Wine - in the pattern paper and embellies

Here is my take on the sketch:

We had a spur of the moment "Family Game Night" with my brothers-in-laws and sister-in-laws. 
We played one of our favorite games "Things!" 
We had lots of fun laughing together!

Here is the envelop I made out of one of the pieces of pattern paper, along with a grouping of embellishments.

I added a strip of Washi tape down the center of the photo the 2 stacks of cards for the game, and a little heart, as my take on the sketch.  I love the PRICELESS piece of Flair!! 

Here you can see where I slipped in the tag with the journaling.

I Love this photo of us!!  Yes, it is a selfie - and I had to angle it like that to fit us all in!  Don't wait for a special occasion to spend time with those you love - get together and laugh and have fun whenever you can.  Life is too short and you never know what tomorrow might bring! 

This is the front of the tag - I used stickers from the sticker sheet of the paper collection, and some real cool fibers.

This is the back of the tag - I love the added Washi - one of my favorite things to use!  Can't believe this was over 2 months ago... I think it is time for another game night soon!!
Hoping you will play along with us this month at the
