Black Friday + Little Yellow Bicycle Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone,

Well is everyone full of Turkey and stuffing?  I know I am! but I had a wonderful day.  I had Thanksgiving here at the house and we had my mom over for dinner.  Just perfect!  I also got to go to Michael's.  Didn't go really for scrappin' stuff.  I had to get 2 entry way Christmas trees and some of their candles for the boys' teachers.  I love their candles and they had them 3 for $10 plus 30% off that.  Also got tons of little things for the boys stockings.  My big thing for me is I got an Ott-Lite.  My scrap room is in the basement so the lighting there is pretty bad. 

So today I am just going to my lss for a sale and then I am picking up  my mom and we are going to a couple of stores.  She wants a new coat and blazer.  I don't want or need a thing. So I am just driving her around!


I have to say that this was a  very fun challenge. Usually the sketch challenges are for single page layouts but this one was for a double page spread--hello--thanks! I  love  2 pagers! 
Here is the original sketch:

Indiana Jack

For the title I cut several of the letters with my Silhouette and then layered them on top of each other to get that dimensional effect. I then distressed them with black soot from Tim holtz. 

For the journaling spot I used the Silhouette's print and cut feature and created the cute circle.  you cant see it but around the circle is says Happy Halloween Spooky etc.  Love it!
Cardstock: bazzil
pattern paper:  little yellow bicycle
epoxy embellies:  little yellow bicycle
button and twine: paper trey ink

Well I hope everyone has a great Black Friday-What is everyone buying today?  I can't wait to go to my lss because they are having a sale--got to love that!  and I am in the mood to buy some paper! I will let you know what I get. 

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow with a really easy gift card holder card.  I made if for a project at my LSS, Simply Scrapbooks for the Holiday Open House..  So I will be back tomorrow.Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

No Sales around here. Tell me how you like your OTT light. I am also in the basement, no windows :(

Fun layout - I love that sketch. No shopping for me today...well, maybe some cyber shopping! I'm not brave enough to fight the crowds. I'd rather stay home and scrapbook! :)
