I decided to use sketch 5 from the 28 Sketches workshop for this layout, thus combining some inspiration this weekend!
Journaling reads: I love it when I'm scrapbooking or blogging and Robbie comes in bringing me a little snack.
Crate Paper Random Collection Textile (background paper)
Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk Collection (paper strip with girl drinking)
Simple Stories Year-O-Graphy (paper strip with days of week)
Cosmo Crick Odds & Ends (abc sticker strip) & Tiny Type
Bazzill red cards, chipboard letters, Coca-Cola truck sticker (from my stash)
Round Coca-Cola embellishment cut from the box that held a collectible card set Robbie purchased recently (he, of course, knew I would want it for my stash)
So, you see, the easy part was combining different collections - because that's what I always do!
And lest you think I skipped sketch 4 in the 28 Sketches workshop, here's the two-page 8 1/2x 11 layout I created before heading to bed late last night. These late 1980s photos are of Robbie's first apartment. Notice the Grinch he painted on his window that Christmas - pretty good artist, isn't he?
