SOS 2nd Sept Challenge - Sketch and 3 School items "Date Night"

In the spirit of "September" being a "Back to School" month - This month's Sketch Challenge at Scrap Our Stash has a little "extra assignment" for you.  Not only do you have a GREAT Sketch to work with - we've added the requirement that you have to "ADD 3 School Items."

Here is the SKETCH  - so put your THINKING CAPS on - as we'd love for you to play along with us!

I've been wanting to use these photos of my husband and I, from a "Date Night" we enjoyed back on September 8th, 2013!!  We went out to dinner and then to a club with a bunch of his friends from work.

Here is my DT Inspiration Layout for you....

I LOVE this paper line from Paper House - Color Ways: Sapphire Collection!!
Blue is one of my favorite colors and I thought it went great with my 2 photos 
from our "Night on the Town!"  

You can see all of the school supply items I used for the challenge in this photo.
They are:
(1) Staples - I used my big EK Success Fastenater Stapler with white and black polka dot staples
(2) Graph Paper for the journaling tag
(3) Black Paper Clip
and an extra (4) Note book edge punch

Here are a few more close ups for you:

One of my favorite necklaces broke, and I couldn't part with it, so I put the beads in my scrappy stash and pulled a few out for this layout.  You can see one of them here - I affixed it to the corner of the photo with an enameled brad.  I love the Silver letters - and decided to make the title "#NEVER2OLD2 Party" since we were the "oldest" couple in the group that night!!
Here is the rest of the title  and another bead from my broken necklace, along with some silver star washi tape and some more "bling!"

We really had a great night! Lots of laughs, good food, a train ride with more laughs on the way home  - and even if we were the oldest ones in the group - I don't think we look that bad for a couple married 31 years!

This is the tag (made with graph patterned paper,) that was tucked behind the photo on the right.  I added the photo with 3D Foam Tape on the bottom and sides, so I could slip the journaling tag behind it.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will play along with us at the SCRAP OUR STASH BLOG!!
