Sketches in Thyme Thursday Takes #35

Once again today, I am the Guest Designer at Sketches in Thyme and this week's Thursday Takes #35 sketch is from Sketchabilities. I enjoyed using this great sketch to create a layout.

I started with the January 20 LOM Community Challenge which was to "create a Storage Binder layout of an event with more than 10 photos. Use only four on your page. Triage the remaining six photos behind at least three different tabs in your category drawers." I chose the photos from my 38th birthday.

I used four photos on the layout and triaged the remaining six behind the following tabs in my Category Drawers: All About Us/Melissa, Days We Celebrate/Birthdays, Things That Matter/Clothes, Places We've Been, Activities We Enjoy/Eating. This layout will go in our Days We Celebrate LOM album.

Supplies: Patterned Paper - 7gypsies Victoria Paper Walker; Border Strips & Flowers -Stampin'Up Just Delightful Simply Scrappin' kit; Dimensional Stickers with Bling - Jolee's Boutique; Journal Box - We R Memory Keepers Die cut Journal Pad

I hope you'll join in this week over at Sketches in Thyme. I'd love to see what you do with this great sketch.
