Friday Moxxie Sketch and Good Times

Happy Friday!
Today is bittersweet for me.  It is my last day of summer vacation.  I am very very sad about this. Usually I am ready to go back to work but this is my first year that I am not excited.   Monday I am back to work.  This will be year 25 for me.  Wow!  Time sure does fly!

Today I have a new sketch and layout to share with you using some yummy Moxxxie, Core'dinations and Some Odd Girl cut file!!  So let's get right to it!

First the sketch!
And now the layout!
For my layout I used the Midway collection from Moxxie.  I made my strips of paper from the sketch into banners.   Next I took my Core Cardstock and scored a border around the edges and then sanded them.  I then took my Sand It gadget and sanded the entire piece to give the paper a more distressed look.  I like how it turned out.   I then used my Some Odd Girl Cut File with the arrows and then used the arrows in my layout.  I love the use of the negative space!  Finally I added some tags from Elle's Studio and Moxxie.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back on Monday with a Back to School project from Imaginisce.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
