Canadian Scrapbooker November Sketch

Two posts in one day! Wowsers! I am on a roll!  I am just too excited to share with you my take on the sketch this month over at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine!  Here is my layout:

Supplies Used: Pattern Paper, Buttons, Chipboard, Stamps, Chipboard Letters, Letter Stickers: Fancy Pants Designs; Chipboard Bird Post: Fab Scraps; Ink: Colorbox Ink from Clearsnap & Stampin' Up! Ink. Twine: The Twinery; Marker: Sharpie; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesive EZ Runner by 3L; Best Creations Inc Foam Tape. Glossy Accents by Ranger; Tool: Prima Distressing Tool; Stampin' up 3/4 Inch Circle Punch

Here is the sketch I based it on:

 I really switched things up on this sketch, but that's why I LOVE working with sketches!  I decided to make my layout into a single page layout, but I immediately thought of banners, so I turned the left side of the sketch upside down.  I didn't have enough photos in the "photo spot" of the sketch so I added two photos, and framed them with a chipboard frame.   I simple ADORE the stamp set in the GOOD LIFE collection by Fancy Pants! I stamped on my layout and then punched out stamped circles and placed them in the centre of the stamped scalloped circles. I added some Fancy Pants Heart buttons for added interest:

 When I added the title I distressed it, and LOVED the look!

 Finally, I have been thinking that my layout was "missing something"... do you ever get that feeling?  Dug into my box of supplies to find some FAB SCRAPS  bird post! I thought that would make a great easel, and a perfect embellishment for the layout!  I painted it, and  cut the top off to look more like an easel; added a subtitle and a cute little sticker banner:

I liked the birdie too, so I added that to the corner of my chipboard frame! 

Hope you have a chance to play along this month with us!
