3 Can Be a Lonely Number {CS Sketch 169}

This week's sketch at Creative Scrappers was so much fun to play with:

I used Studio Calico's Paper Moon kit, along with a few odds and ends from my stash to make my page.

This is a makeover of this layout I made about 5 years ago. Call me crazy, but I like to re-do pages that I hate. Here's the journaling that's on the back (I just took a screen shot of the journaling on the old page):

Here are some details. How cool is that paper that looks like old computer punch cards? It's by October Afternoon from their Rocket Age collection--the specific paper is called Docking Maneuver. The bit that says "Travel Nightmare" is from a Smash pad (the travel one, obviously).

The border stickers (the red triangle, the train, and the circle numbers at the top) are by Crate Paper, from their Toy Box collection. That bit that says "Seriously" is an old woven tab by Making Memories--remember those? I've been making a conscious effort lately to include some of my "oldies-but-goodies" on my pages.

Here's another bit of old stash--a brass concho. I was trying to highlight the number 3 on my page. As you can see, I framed the 3 on that border sticker with the concho, and I cut out the 3's on the Studio Calico number paper. If you look back, you can see that I adhered some of the 3's that I punched out of the October Afternoon to the photograph.

The rest of the DT made some gorgeous stuff, so you'll have to pop over and see what they did. And I hope you'll play along--you may just win a prize from our sponsor, Crop Chocolate. You can read details about the requirements on the Creative Scrappers blog.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and reading about my page!

Fantastic take on the sketch Debbie! I like both your original layout and your new makeover layout.. :) Love the way you cut your 3 out of your paper, and how you framed the 3 on your sticker with that brass concho. I love all your layering and the great mix of patterns. You're right...the October Afternoon paper that looks like old computer punch cards is awesome!
Thank you for all your incredibly sweet comments on my blog and over at CCG. So appreciate it!
Have a stunning weekend.. :)
