Sketchabilities Challenge #139

It has been a weekend to spend inside.  It has rained and rained and rained.  So needed.  Up until dinner time last evening we had had almost an inch!!!  It is snowing this morning outside of town.  Our friends who live about 10mi to the east just dropped in and said it was snowing at their place and I am sure it is in the mountains too!  Soccer cancelled for today.
Just an FYI--  here it is 3pm in the afternoon and a whopping 37F!!!!!

So I have been playing in my crafting space.

There is a new challenge up on the Sketchabilites blog.
Here is their sketch.

Here is my end result
I started by stamping the Letter Background in the middle with navy and embossing it with clear embossing powder.  Also a little distressing with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
Droplets of Color Shine and Mr. Huey and misting also.
The paper strips were cut on my Silhouette.

Paper from Fancy pants- Swagger and Beach Bum
Others from my Scrap basket
Penny Black Stamp- Letter Background
Dies from Tim Holtz and Memory Box
Color Shine- Navy and Gold,  Mr. Huey- Pumpkin Spice
MME decorative brad
Title- Crate Paper- Boys Rule
Silver Stars from Impress

You make the best layout takes using sketches, Leslee! They are always "spot on" and so adorable! I wish I could have some of that rain here in California, but I don't envy you those temperatures! Brrr!! I hope it has warmed up a bit and that you enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
