Start Your Scrappy Engines

Because Allison's got a new sketch up today at So Sketchy! It's such a fun one with a large arrow, two photos, and a little embellishing in the top corner. Check it out HERE.

Here's my layout, featuring my little speed racer on the go kart track in Gulf Shores.

Supplies: Kraft cardstock: Paper Studio; patterned paper: Chatterbox, Crate Paper, SEI; alphas: American Crafts, Lil Davis; journal strips: Dymo labeler; buttons: stash.

I've been admiring banners such as mine on other people's layouts for a while, so I was excited to add one to this layout. The houndstooth patterned paper reminded me of a checkered flag at the race track. I simply cut out some triangles, inked their edges, added some orange eyelets to the top of each one, and then strung them onto some thin orange ribbon. Fun stuff!

Go by and see the other design team members' takes on the sketch. So inspiring!

Thanks for stopping by!
