Sketches In Thyme Take #60

My first layout for Sketches in Thyme went live today. Here is this week's sketch:

I found these photos of the Ruby slippers from our DC trip last fall and knew they were perfect for this sketch. I had to make some red glitter words so I die cut some red glitter foam. Here's my take:

Christmas Craft Time

A month or so ago I came across a darling project from Leslie Ashe. I decided I must give it a try. Usually I'm one that sees fun ideas but rarely make them. Well at Memorable Seasons, we are sharing each Wednesday from now until Christmas a Christmas craft to help inspire you. This week it's my turn. So I pulled out last years Echo Park line and got to work. The trick is to figure out the order of your paper and then once you have the length figured out, cut it at that length and the width is 2". Roll up your paper gluing it to seal the paper tube closed and once you have it all laid out the way you want just glue them down to the canvas. I created a dimensional star and popdotted it for the top and then added buttons and brads for my ornaments. I decided I wanted to add a frame using one of my border punches. So if you're like me and see crafts you like but rarely make, give this a try. If you create a project(not a layout or card) using rolled paper your name will go into the monthly draw at Memorable Seasons. I'd love to have you link back here so I can see what you create.

Recipe Challenge at MS

Hi's my turn to issue a challenge over at Memorable Seasons. So with it being close to Thanksgiving I thought a recipe challenge was perfect. So with that in mind here is the recipe for you to follow:

* Scalloped Edge
* 2 Photos
* At least 3 leaves (they can be any kind or size)
* banner
*a pinch of sewing/stitching

Just like with any recipe, you can add any additional "seasonings" to it to spice it up but you must you the ingredients listed above.

Here is my layout using this recipe:

And if you're interested, here is a link to how I made this simple banner using a border punch.

I'm excited to see what you cook up with this recipe!
