It's June 1, which means a brand-new challenge is live at Stuck?! Sketches! Here's the layout I made:
Here's the awesome sketch Laura made for us:
And some details. Farzad and I go out to lunch after church every Sunday. For the past year and a half or so, we went on, what I call and "Alphabet Adventure," where we chose restaurants based on letters of the alphabet, which is pretty easy where I live, which is something of a restaurant mecca. (I made a page to document this some time ago. You can see that page here.)
We've been through the alphabet three times, so I thought it was time for a little change. Now we're doing what I call the "Coupon Caper," which is pretty self-explanatory. Anyway, we're putting our savings in a jar, so I knew I wanted to use a jar on my page. I chose to use a Dear Lizzy stamped jar in place of one of the photos on the sketch.
My layout started with some new Jillibean Soup die-cuts I had recently bought. I found lots of scraps of old patterned papers in my stash to match the colors, and I even rescued some very old Pink Paislee letter stickers in just the right yellow.
A few pearls and enamel dots for some added dimension and some flair badges by A Flair for Buttons.
The tabs are by Kaisercraft. Another flair badge from A Flair for Buttons. Believe it or not, but I spent the better part of a day fiddling around with the placement of all these things, but it all came together in the end!
