Love 2 Fly Page for Another Freaking Scrappy

Sometimes a challenge comes in two different ways! I started with the latest sketch at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.

I personally thought this sketch was challenging but I was also making myself finish up the very snippets of a kit I had been hoarding!

Which meant I had to make my own background! 

Started with this layout as my base. Those circles I had cut out of nice cream colored paper when I was making my Christmas cards and had to be used up. 

Next, added plaster over a clock stencil I had. Sorry about the weird angle, but it's hard to see! Thankfully the plaster is a smidge purple. 

Then, inked up the plaster raised clocks once dry and added gesso over the whole thing lightly. 

Then started adding all my fun stuff like the bits and pieces I had left over from my kit and this amazing tag that Jeanie made. Added those buttons on a card for Lizzy Hill as we had been discussing using these as a whole. This happens to be the bottom half as I used the top half already!

Here is another close up of my photos and the little bits and pieces I used up. 

How do you like THOSE pictures!? My kids sprawled all over the seats as our flight back from Vegas did not have a lot of travelers so they were allowed to use all three seats! Luke took a very long happy nap under THE MAN'S coat so awoke all happy and refreshed! Sometimes it's hard work being a kid!

I could get used to flying that way. I guess I had better hurry up and win lotto!

If you get a chance, play along with us! It would be awesome! 

Happy Nearly Hump Day! ;-)
