Double DT Reveal

This is the first time I've had this happen, with being on multiple DT's!!  :)  So I will be sharing a layout for today's Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs and my layout for Sketch Support based on this week's One Page Sketch #19.

Our challenge this week at Frosted Designs is a really fun one...Recycle/Upcycle!  This basically means finding something to use on your layout or project, that you typically wouldn't think about using as scrapbook supplies.  For example, you could use packaging, clothing tags, household items, etc., etc., etc.!!  Let your imagination take over for this one and have fun!  I'll share my layout and then tell you what I used for my Recycle/Upcycle elements:

I LOVE to save the cardboard pieces that come in the packages that I receive when I order Scrapbook supplies.  Sometimes I use it behind an element I fussy cut from patterned paper to give it more dimension on my page.  In this case, I just peeled the top layer off of the cardboard piece to reveal the corrugated look underneath.  I thought it would be a great texture to go along with the theme of the October Afternoon Sasparilla line that I used on my layout.  A second Recycle/Upcycle element on this page, is the tag on which I placed my title.  It is the back side of a tag from the Dry Cleaners.  Fun, huh??!!  So get creative this week and see what you can find laying around, that would make for some fun scrapping!  By playing along this week, you have the chance to win a great prize from our sponsor, Karlas Kreative Korner.

I hope you have been checking in everyday this week at Sketch Support, because the DT Ladies have been doing some amazing work.  I loved this sketch and decided to change it up a little bit for my photo.  If you've seen a lot of my work, then you probably have realized that I work with portrait photos 95% of the time compared to landscape photos.  So usually, when I come across a sketch with a photo spot for landscape photos, I flip it...which is what I did with this one too!!  :)  The sketch uses some cute patterned paper banner strips behind the photo, and I thought it would be great to change those to arrows, to go along with the theme of my page.

Since I turned the sketch, I moved the title underneath the photo, in place of the journaling area and then I just shifted my journaling down a little bit on the page.  Come over and see what's been going on this week at Sketch Support, and look for a new sketch this Sunday afternoon!
