June SOS - Sketch +3 Our "Fabulous Escape"

Hi everyone!  It is time for the Sketch + 3 Challenge over at the SCRAP OUR STASH BLOG!

If you don't know how it works - just use the sketch below for your inspiration, and also pick ONE item or color from each of the 3 different lists!

When I was looking through photos, I found this one from our 2014 Disney Westbound Trans Atlantic Cruise.  When I saw the colors, the Purple frame, Minnie's Red dress, bow, heart and purse, and my hubby's Black shorts, I decided to search my "STASH" to see what I had in those colors and BINGO!  I found American Crafts Red Chevron paper ( I used the heart side ) and their Purple Dots paper (I used the squiggly line side) and a scrap of Black and white polka dot paper - I think was from Simple Stories "Say Cheese."  

I love how this layout of our "Fabulous Escape" came out! I'll have to remember to use this sketch again - as the 3 different background papers really make it "FUN!"

Thanks to my friend Janice, who has an amazing STASH of flowers!  We were at a crop together and she let me dig through her stash.... I love how the different colors look layered together, and the heart button in the center just went perfectly!

Minnie is so much fun!

I love these chipboard heart arrows!  I painted them with Silver Distress Paint and the inked them with purple distress ink here and there, and added some purple tickles to some of the hearts.  Here you can see where I punched holes and sewed on the layout by hand.  Someday I hope to have a sewing machine (when I move into my new craft room maybe!)

Here is a close up of the stitching and some of them embellishments!  The "fabulous" title is a clear sticker that I have had forever! The white "escape" goes great with it - don't you think?

I made a tag, and stamped the date on it. I added some cool washi tape in all the colors - and some little embellies.  My favorite part of the tag are all the funky fibers I tied through the hole!  Thanks again to my friend Janice!  They go perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a chance to play along with us at Scrap Our Stash, using this super fun sketch!
