Sketches With A Twist Layout!

Hello lovelies!! Okay so don't forget my blog turns a big 2 this month and to celebrate i am having a GIVEAWAY!!!
If you would like to enter my GIVEAWAY and have a chance to win some goodies
please go --------> here
Here is a picture of what i am giving away!!!!!
 
 



 
Anyway onto my post. It has been so super hot here in Queensland that i decided to turn on my air conditioner and finish a page i started for Sketches With A Twist,  i should be ironing but it is far too hot for that. This is the first time i have decided to play along with them. Here is the sketch....

 
 

And as the name suggests.. the twist is to use chevron.
Here is my page. a nice bright one to match the girls shirts. My sisters did their shirts themselves and i think they turned out magnificent!!! As you can see i prepped the background similar to the sketch and went from there misting and what not. For my chevrons i used the washi tape on the background, some pattern paper to matt my middle photo and if you look closely you can see the title has a chevron pattern.


 
 
 
Okay so that is it from me for sharing, i have a few more pages i need to finish which hopefully i will share tomorrow.
I plan to scrap alot over the next few weeks as Uni doesn't start up until February and i will have no children at home, so other than housework what will i do???? One major thing I plan on is kick starting my New Years scrapping resolution. Do you know what it is??? Actually it is two things: 1. I plan to finish all my unfinished layouts. I was thinking last night as i slept how awful it would be for my children to be left with a heap of unfinished pages, although i plan to be here awhile you never know. 2. Get back to journaling. When i started scrapping i would fill my pages with so much now i am flat out adding a date. I know bad right! Hopefully i will have a little more time to get myself together this year but who knows lets wait and see.
Until next time Blessed Be and TFL!!!
