Scrapbook Circle Challenge 17 & Sketchy Thursdays 10.13

Combined two journaling challenges this week- one from Scrapbook Circle and another from the sketch at Sketchy Thursdays! My little niece is just such a sweet little girl that I had to use Scrapbook Circle's August kit- You Are My Sunshine to make this layout about her because the colors and patterns in the kit were perfect for this photo of her. My printer is acting a little wacky, so the colors in the photo are a way off and not exactly the look I was going for but it works!

Anyway, I journaled about how much I love this little kiddo and a quick little story about the ribbons in her hair and the wristband she's wearing. She wanted a little tutu from the Dollar Tree which I told her was way too small for her, but she insisted that it would fit. Since it was just a dollar I got it anyway and of course 5 minutes after wearing it....it split! So I cut it into pieces and made a some flowers to embellish her 'Dollar Tree' headbands, tied some of the fabric to the ends of her braids and used the left over piece to tie a wristband- talk about fashion design on a dime!  It's a good thing that this little girl does not belong to me because we would be some crazy dollar store craftin' nuts every weekend! Anyway, like I said the majority of the layout is made with my August Scrapbook Circle kit but I also added a few things like the 'you are here'/ arrow stamp and the stamp around the journaling block are Studio Calico as well as the buttons,  a heart doilie from my stash, and Thickers. Well, that's it for today! Oh, yeah and if you're interested....my Random Crate Paper giveaway a couple of posts below is still open until Wednesday morning!
