Last week we revealed a NEW SKETCH over on the Let's Scrap Sketches Blog and I finally getting around to sharing the layout here.

Like I do often, I combined the two-page sketch into a one-page layout...showcasing 2 of my long-time #besties. You know women, we have a girlfriends that are different things to us but we rarely find one, let alone TWO, that can be EVERYTHING to us. These girls are THOSE kind of one-stop-shop!

Here's my layout using CTMH's Swan Lake Collection

I used a retired chevron bag from CTMH to be my journalling pocket. I love to hide my journalling for several reasons and these PML cards are perfect for noting the small things (or in this instance, a WHOLE BUNCH of things) hidden away so not to take away from the photos and the embellishments!

Merry & Bright City Sidewalks...

I know it's only November but CTMH's new Christmas-themed paper line, City Sidewalks, has me swooning over all things Wintry!

I sat down with City Sidewalks paper & Complements and the NEW City Sidewalks Digital Cricut Collection and created this card!

I cut the car plus separated the images and cut 2 more of just the car base then used my Thin 3D-Foam Tape to create a lot of dimension. The "sun" is actually a silver star from the Complements and I used my Marigold ShinHan Marker to color it a gold color. ****the Willow sun rays*** actually happened by mistake...when I stamped the tree border from Woodland Wishes, my block accidentally got inked up and stamped off on my White Daisy avoid re-cutting the circle and re-stamping, I

I added some layers to the wreath by cutting out the solid wreath 2 times and using some Thin 3-D Foam Tape to adhere the layers. The "J" and the "Y" are cut using the Artistry Cricut Collection...I added a Red Enamel Gem to the center of the bow for some dimension and extra bling...
