The Scrappiest Sketch & Apron Strings Challenge Layout

I finished a layout today about dinner in Sonoma.  I used a the Scrappiest Sketch #112 and the Apron Strings: Birthday Party Day #14 Challenge.  The Day #14 Challenge is to do something new to you on your layout:  mists, paint, sewing, decoupage ;), chipboard, hand cutting, building your own embellishments, etc.  I used my new Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Nestabilities Eyelet Circles for my journaling block.  I have had this for about 2 weeks and was a little leary about using it.  This challenge gave me the nudge to try it out and I loved it!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my layout:

Here is a detailed photo of the spellbinders journaling block:

Materials Used: paper - Flair Designs, Deja Views, and misc. scraps; journaling block - Spellbinders Eyelet Circles; title - Making Memories, Sandylion Essentials; wine tag - Creative Imaginations; embellishments - Jolee's by You Cheese bskt, French bread, Wine.

Thanks for visiting!
