A Charming Afternoon - Paper Bakery Sketch #1


It feels like it's been a long, long time since I've made something just for fun and not for an assignment so yesterday and today I decided to ignore the things I need to be doing and just make a layout for fun. If felt really good and not I am so ready to get back on task.

For this page, I used a sketch by Grace Tolman for The Paper Bakery. Have you checked out this kit club? Love the stuff they put together and the fact that they have project kits. Good stuff for sure.


Also tried out some new dies and brand new Design Adhesives - can you see it there on the right side? The glitter is so light you can't really make out the design but it's a bird. The flower is made from pattern paper scraps from the Halloween costume patterns.


The journaling reads "You become terribly bored on the weekends your bro & sis go to visit their other family, so we stay busy by taking trips to the park to play." Very true. She can hardly stand playing by herself anymore. We often head up to the Martensdale park to ride on the bike trail, swing and play on the equipment.

Also used the sketch to take care of a few leftover paper scraps. Grids just make life easier don't they?


Here's the sketch in case you want to play along too. Have a spooky Halloween weekend! The hubs is taking me to a haunted house tonight - my favorite!

Fantastic projects- love the color palette in the first and the small details like the paper ribbon and 2 staples attaching the heart punch in the card.
