Stuck?! Sketches

Happy Friday! I can't believe it's already July...our summer has really been flying by! I haven't had as much time as I would like to scrapbook, but I've been having fun with the kids swimming in the pool, doing crafts and teaching them to do some cooking & baking. We've also had a dear friend, who is moving to our area, stay with us while he found a house and as he waits for the movers to arrive. Good times!

Maybe some of you are having a less hectic summer and are itching to get busy in your craft area. Lucky for you, Stuck?! Sketches has a brand new sketch up on the blog to provide you with some scrappy inspiration...

And here is my interpretation...

When I saw this sketch I immediately thought of a filmstrip diecut that my mom cut for me a few years ago with one of her diecutting machines. For what ever reason I have been hoarding it, but this sketch made me decide to finally put it to use. I've also been hoarding that cute little tricycle embellishment ever since we bought Santiago his trike. And as you can see by the date on the layout, that means it's been in my stash for about five years. Seriously, am I the only one who has such horrible hoarding tendencies with my scrapbooking supplies? The rest of my life does not reflect that...I'm constantly purging and giving to charity, selling or throwing away. But those scrappy goodies just accumulate. I digress...

Back to the awesome sketch! As you can see you are not constricted to using all photos. I replaced the line of three small photos with the filmstrip diecut. If you would like to see more inspiration as to how to use the sketch, I encourage you to check out the Stuck?! Sketches blog. I also hope you will decide to join in. If you link up your layout by July 29th you will have an opportunity to win an amazing prize from this month's sponsor.

Thanks for looking...have a fabulous weekend!
