beautiful day at the park

Hey all, I'm still on my 8.5x11 kick.  Not by choice necessarily because I really struggle with it, but I'm having to redo two of my old albums that were damaged and if I want to be able to salvage the layouts that survived then I need to keep with that size for the rest.

This 2pager is brought to you by Stuck?! Sketches.  They posted two sketches this month and I used one for each page.  Sure hope that's not against the rules to post them together.  The left side is the February 1st sketch flipped horizontally and the right side is the February 15th sketch.

All the paper is Fancy Pants 'At Summers End' and the letters are all Thickers.  The golden ones are plain white glittery thickers that I inked up.  That's my favorite thing to do...probably EVER!  You can make them any color at all that you can find ink in.  Though I have found that it really only works with the glittery ones because the glitter seems to prevent the ink from wiping off, though you probably wouldn't have that problem if you used quality pigment ink.  The diecuts are all from my Create-a-Critter cartridge.  Except the arrows and doilies...those aren't die-cuts.  I fussy cut those from the paper scraps.

Thanks for visiting!
