New Sketches With Color Challenge

Hey everybody!  Now that I'm done with work for the summer, I can actually spend more time posting to the blog!  We just had our June 15 reveal at the Sketches With Color blog.  Another gorgeous color combination and beautiful sketch!

My take on the sketch is a little more streamlined, simply because I'm more a "graphic" scrapper.  The flourishes in the sketch are gorgeous, but I would never be able to make it look right!  LOL

Another London Eye Photo

When my ex and I went to London a couple of years ago, I went a bit snap happy with the camera (as did she) and took soooooo many pictures.  I then got prints of all of them.  I'm still working on bits and pieces of that trip...at least of the photos that don't make me too sad.  I've already done like 3 or 4 layouts of the London Eye, but found this lone straggler amongst my pictures and had to use it for yet another layout.  

This is a complete mish-mash of manufacturers and products, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Supplies:  patterned paper - American Crafts, Basic Grey, Lily Bee Design, Studio Calico; letter stickers - Crater Paper, Lily Bee Design; cork arrows - Studio Calico; stars - Basic Grey; brad - Cosmo Cricket; die cut & chipboard sticker - Crate Paper; tab & adventure stickers - Lily Bee Design; washi stickers - Basic Grey; spray ink - Mister Huey's (Studio Calico)

A couple of notes:  I think I might have mentioned this before - I got a Canon Rebel TS3 just before the holidays last year and while my actual photos look SO much better, I find I have a mush harder time photographing my layouts with it than with my old point and shoot.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Also...this isn't so much a note, as it is a brag - we're leaving on Friday for a week at Walt Disney World, my very favorite place!  I'm going with my parents, my sister, and my almost 3 year old niece.  It will be her first trip, so we're all super excited to see the place through a child's eyes after numerous all-adults trips over the past few years!

What's your favorite travel destination?
