Look What I Unearthed

While I'm on vacation this week, I thought that I would tackle my monstrous pile of layouts that need to be placed into albums. Yeah, that would be over 100 layouts. Pshhh...ridiculous!

Anyhoo, I found a layout that I never posted here. I completed it as part of a little impromptu challenge at the Treasured Memories Rayne Forest crop in July. My new friend Vera and I decided to challenge each other to create a layout in under an hour using the following elements: masking, metals, and the color orange. Here's mine.

Moment In Time: I just happened to have this vintage photo of my oldest son with me at the crop, so I went with that style layout. A little different for me, I think. I bought a Tim Holtz mask and some Gunmetal Glimmer Mist to create the clock and set the theme of my layout. Then, I piled on some Studio Calico paper; Pink Paislee, Jillibean Soup, My Little Shoebox, and American Crafts alphas; Glitz stickers; vintage sheet music; burlap swatch; and Making Memories metal.

Even though this one isn't quite my usual style, I did like the final result. Especially since I finished it in less than an hour. That's a first!

Thanks for stopping in today. I'll be back tomorrow with another Imaginisce sketch challenge layout. Have a great day!
