ATV Adventure

Thursday already?! Where has this week gone?! Well, since it is Thurday, we have a new challenge for you at Sketches in Thyme! Here is the LO I made about our ATV adventure while we were in Cabo!

This is the sketch we were working with this week. It is from Sketchabilities and I loved it! As you can tell, I had to flip it so it worked better with my photos. When I first saw the sketch I thought it looked girly but I had no problems grunging this one up!
Here is the title... appropriately named  since it was an adventure! A lot of dust, a few cows, and a few stories go along with this adventure! I used Tim Holtz grungeboard letters that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist to match my LO. The other letters are from Making Memories. I put some white paint under the rub ons so that they would show up better!

I had fun with this tag... it is canvas so I took my Tim Holtz distresser on the edges. I inked it, added brads, a little lace and flowers and couldn't help but adding a little bling too! The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.

A little detail from the top of the LO! I added a little lace so it would be a little feminine! After all, I was on one of thos ATVs!!  ;)

I am really trying hard to use my scraps when I am done with LOs to make a card. I figure even if I only do this 50% of the time, I am still ahead in the card department when I need one fast!! (Isn't it amazing what lighting can do when taken photos?! The LO photos were taken inside and the card outside... they don't even look like they were made with the same papers!!)

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop by Sketches in Thyme to see what the other Mavens have done with this sketch! All of the LOs are pretty amazing! Enjoy your day!

Great layout and card, Barb! I love how you "grunged" up the layout while allowing feminine bits to show through at the same time. Also love the close-up shots that you took of all your gorgeous detail work - great job!
