5 Year Anniversary Got Sketch

This week Got Sketch is celebrating it's 5th birthday. Reason enough to celebrate don't you think. Hop on over to Got Sketch's blog and see how you can win a fabulous prize package from Basic Grey's new PB&J collection. You've got until May 13th to submit your work.

Here's what I created using the sketch...using the new Pretty Party collection from Crate Paper. I put it on my wish list, but almost didn't purchase it. I'm so glad I did, because I love how this turned out.

I dipped the bingo chip number into Papertrey Ink's Hibiscus ink so it was no longer red.

I cut the title with my Silhouette Digital Cutter using Cider font from I also moved the title underneath the pictures, since I felt it was to crowded at the top near the cluster of embellishments.

On the original sketch the the strips are on the left hand side, but I chose to move it to the top right.

I love using pop-up dots for embellishments and journaling tags, to give it extra depth.

Hallo Lisette,
Dit is een prachtig en zeer vrolijke LO! Heel mooi en zonnig.

Heb je een nieuwe profielfoto? Je ziet er goed uit! Kan ook haast niet anders als je in zo een geweldig land woont (-;

Groetjes uit een bewolkt Nederland,
