Drive

Let me start this post by wishing my wonderful husband of 24 years a Happy Anniversary today. I know it is not always easy, and sometimes we are a pain in each others ass, but, I love you always!!! You truly are my best friend. :)

Okay, enough of the sappy crap.

Today's layout is courtesy of an Allison Davis sketch. I don't use sketches often because I have a hard time deviating from the basic idea that is put in front of me. But, just wanting to get something done this weekend, I pulled out my sketchbook and went to work. Not much was changed from the original sketch, except a few shifts in paper and embellishments.


I distressed the edges of the embellishments and the journaling tag to give some much needed dimension, otherwise, the layout was really flat looking. While it is not my most favorite layout, it is a complete layout, which in turn jumped started my creativity and I was able to work on something else for later this week.
