Falling For You and the ScrapRoom's September Sketch

This is my 2nd layout using The ScrapRoom's September Doubleshot Kit. Matthew made a new friend on our trip to Big Dan's for some apple picking last fall. The neighbor's dog thought he was the next best thing to a big bone or maybe something stinky to roll in :)

My friend and fellow ScrapRoom Design Team member Aphra Boyler created this sketch for the September sketch challenge on the ScrapRoom blog.

Visit the ScrapRoom Blog to see more takes on Aphra's sketch.

Loving those Jillibean alphas. Outlined them with Sharpie to help them stand out. The "you" stickers are the new "Do It Yourself" Thickers with a layer of yellow Doodlebug glitter.

Foam squares are my friend :)

More layered diecuts, so versatile!

I have to confess...this layout was a comedy of errors :P  First I fingerprinted it and had to hide the marks with distress ink. I mean, a little distressing goes well with a fall theme...right!? Then I dropped a chalk ink pad right on the bottom and it bounced! I hate those ink pads that don't stay adhered to their base! Grrr. So out came the chevron and yellow cardstock strips to hide the damage. Moral to the story, cover your layout when working with ink and wash your hands frequently or embrace your mistakes :)

Love this, Beth!! Great use of all of the patterns and I love the larger photo with the two smaller ones. The title looks awesome on your photo and you would never know there were any "mistakes" on this page!!

This is awesome. I saved this one to my harddrive to study later in case it gets pulled for publication! ;)...I love the way you put the title on the photo.
