I am really glad it is Wednesday again, closer to our office closure for the year and time for our annual Christmas holiday to begin. Then again, over at Let's Scrap it is time for a new sketch.
Here is my take on the sketch.
When I received the sketch a while back and started with the planning, I printed some pictures that I took during my recent conference in the Kruger National Park. However, when I started the layout, I realised that I did not feel like scrapping the pictures that I printed. So I went through my stash, I decided to scrap some pictures of Sherlock instead. This is only the second layout I have done of the little pup, and he almost isn't a pup anymore :-) These pictures were taken on the 8th of May 2011, a few days after we got Sherlock.
I battled a bit to match paper to my pictures, but in the end I found the Homemade Collection designed by Kaisercraft and used the bits and pieces I had left for this layout. The embellishing I kept to a minimum.
For the title and used chipboard letters which I inked with a brown cats eye and then applied Tim Holtz' Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint over each of the letters. For the second half of the title I used some wooden scrabble blocks that I had in my stash. Here are some close-ups of the title.
And some more detail pictures.
And now for some information on this week's sponsor.
