Two Sketches One Layout

I have been using sketches to boost my productivity this week. I saw this sketch on Shimelle's website today (it is quite an old one but new to me) and it reminded me of this week's Sunday Sketch at Studio Calico.

Below is the Studio Calico Sketch.

I decided to kind of mix and match them a bit to create something fun.

This is almost entirely my, fresh off the plane, Studio Calico Elmwood Park kit with a few bits from add on 2, Twisty Slide. The only non kit additions are the sequin style Thickers from American Craft, the Basic Grey flair and the Freckled Fawn hemp thread. Oh and the Elle's Studio journalling and date spots.

My daughter would admit that her favourite food in the world is not cupcakes but in fact Chewbaba (cucumber) but cupcakes are a very close second. Well, to be honest, the icing on the cupcakes is what she likes. She can take or leave the cake part. We have rather a large collection of pictures of  Scarlett and cupcakes but these are two of my favourites.

I am totally in love with those Thickers. I also bought them in blue but I can see I may need to get a couple more packs as they will not last long.

Have a wonderful Thursday!
