Scrap Our Stash June Sketch Challenge

Not only does Scrap Our Stash Challenges have a great sketch for you to try this month, but there's the additional challenge of incorporating a premade tag or journaling card AND jute or twine on your layout!
I decided to use this sketch for the title page for my 2013 family album.  (Each month I make a "highlights" layout.)  I choose three pictures that represent the first half of this year, and then when I printed them, I decided that the For Always paper pack was a great match.
Since I had to use a premade tag, as I dug through my stash, I found a box of old bank ledger paper from my late father-in-law.  It is perfect on the layout!  (I love how patterned paper shows through.)  The little rolodex card is also from my stash from a pack that I found for only $0.50.  I used Whisper, Slate, and Ruby inks with the Family Love, A Journey, and Approved stamp sets.  The cool glitter numbers are from the Glamour glitter alphabet set, and they tie in well with the (retired) glitter brads.  Finally, I couldn't find my gray baker's twine, but the black hemp is close enough to jute or twine (I hope!).  It's all about scrapping your stash, right?

I am sad to share that this will be my final post as a member of the SOS Design Team. (Notice that I didn't say that this is my final SOS post; I will still be playing along for fun as time allows!)  Life is just so overwhelming right now with our home remodel that I needed to clear off my busy plate a bit.  It has been a pleasure working with the entire SOS DT, and I know that the new group will continue to inspire and challenge us all!  Be sure to visit the SOS blog often!
