Where Are You? - My Scraps & More Sketch #104

Friday is here!  And it's the 3rd Friday in April which means I get to share another layout for the My Scraps & More sketch blog.  Today's reveal is a sketch by the extremely talented Nicole Nowasad!  I love her work, and I really had fun with it.  See my layout below and then go check out all the other layouts from the sketch design team!

Cats are such fun creatures, and my two love to play their version of hide and seek...which means one pretends to hide and the other knows where, but wants to surprise the other one by jumping on them when they emerge from their hiding spot.  Silly kitties!

For my layout, I used Simple Stories Life Documented with a base of kraft cardstock.  I flipped the layout on its side for a bit of fun.  I cut strips of various widths and lengths and inked the edges with dark blue ink.  Instead of laying them all down parallel with each other, I decided to put them at slight angles.  Once I had them where I wanted them, I sewed along each one to create the sense of movement.  For the largest strip, I sewed three shorter lines on each side.  

I matted the photos using the blue polka dot paper, and then placed them over a wood grain strip.  I wanted the photos to have some dimension, so I popped them up with 3D foam tape.

Next I placed a corner embellishment area using the striped paper, one of the Bits & Pieces and an enamel dot.

I created the title with Freckled Fawn Wood Chip Alphas and Simple Stories Sn@p! alphas. I could *NOT* find a question mark that worked, so I created one using the same technique as I used on this fun "Who's Who?" layout

I created some journaling spots using more Life Documented Bits & Pieces and enamel dots.

That's it for today!  I hope you use this sketch and play along with My Scraps & More.  If you do, remember to post it for a chance at the April prize, a pack of Pinkfresh Studios Up in the Clouds collection.
