Best of Times

Good morning!! It is Thursday which means that we have a new sketch for you at Sketches in Thyme!!
My Daughter, Kristin, has been working on some room decorations for her college dorm this summer. She had these pictures of her and her high school friends that she wanted me to put in a LO that she could frame for her room! She picked all the elements like the papers, ribbons, and flowers!! I just put it together!! We decided that the photos needed something to make them stand out a bit but didn't want to double mat them. We decided to add some white paint to the edges and then we did the same thing with all the edges of the layout! She loves it and can't wait to display it in her room!! And since the challenge at Creative Belli blog right now is paint... I thought I would enter it there!!

Here is the sketch for this weeks challenge! We would love to have you play along!! This was a really easy sketch to work with... and you could win a prize!! Everyone who enters a project at Sketches in Thyme during the month of August will be elegible for the prize at the end of the month!! So come play along with us!!


Thanks for stopping by today!! And as always, thank you for your sweet comments!!  Barb  :)

Speaking of white paint. Does it really reduce heat when applied to roof?
