Sassy Lil' Sketches - July 7th sketch :: My boys

It's the 7th of the month, which means it's time for another sketch over at Sassy Lil' Sketches!!

As always, we have a couple of generous sponsors this month, who have given SLS some prizes to give away. To be in with a chance to win a prize, just play along with us this month - link up your layout using any of July's sketches on the main blog!

This month we are being sponsored by  






Now for my layout for this month....



Yes, these are my boys!!! Big and Little....LOL.  I took Cherie's sketch, and rotated it 90 degrees, and then adjusted the elements until it looked just right LOL. I love this photo of Mark and Tom, taken in the summer of 2004. They are sat on the roundabout at the park in Syston - the village where Mark grew up. It was pretty cool to see the kids playing on the park we played on as kids (Mark more than I, as I lived in the next village. But we did stop there sometimes on the way back from the Doctor's Surgery...)

I used a dinner plate as a template for the stitched circle, and scraps of Jillibean Soup and Fancy Pants papers. The spiral arrow is from Maya Road, and I coloured it in with a ProMarker before coating it in Glossy Accents to give it a shiny appearance. The other two chipboard elements are also from Maya Road, and I added Stickles to those after coloring them in with ProMarkers. The loopy cardstock border is from Bazzill Basics, as is the kraft cardstock. The title is a mix of American Crafts Thickers, and Scenic Route chipboard alphas. I Stickled the chipboard... I don't know what came over me that day, all this glitter on a boys page LOL.


Please head over to the blog to see what the other 7th Sassies have done with the sketch - lots of inspiration from the girls this month!
