Happy Times 36

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 12, 2013 @ 11:12 AM | , , , , , , , ,

Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a great weekend! Scott and I went to see the movie Captain Phillips yesterday ~ oh my goodness ~ I was on the edge of my seat for nearly the entire movie! If you are up for a great suspense film which is based on a true story, I highly recommend seeing this one.

I had time to play this morning before going to get my eyes examined so I made a layout featuring a photo of Meredith and I that was taken several years ago at the top of the Haleakala Crater on Maui. After creating the background using pretty patterned papers from Prima's Lyric collection, I added some texture and design using the Scallops stencil followed with stamped chicken wire design from Distressed Background Blocks.
Once the background was dry, I embellished with a stamped clock from Timeless and a variety of homemade die cut flowers:
For the title, I stamped a sentiment from Timeless on a die cut piece then layered it on top of a die cut tag made using a Die-namics Pierced Traditional Tag die. 
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with Prima's October BAP (Build A Page) challenge
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

A great page from the sketch Mona - I love how you interpret things! You are making so many wonderful pages using photos of the kids when they were young - love the chicken wire and stenciling - I'm kind of afraid to see Capt Phillps - just the previews make me scared!!
