Dinosaur Valley - New Layout

We took Maddie to Dinosaur Valley in early June. She loves dinosaurs and we thought it would be great. She really wasn't too interested in the dinosaur tracks, but LOVED the river. It was a bit chilly, but she didn't care. There were lots of squeals and laughter.

I used Pamela's World of Scrap - Sketch #242, which was perfect as I had soooo many pictures that I wanted to include. Here is the sketch:

I also played along with the Twinery - challenge #12. I used twine to create the circles as well as brads, stickers and paper circles as embellishments. 

Since I was playing with twine, I figured I add a little stitching to play along with The Paper Girls Challenge #41 - Sew it On! I stitched the edge of the journaling block to look like a wire binder on a paper pad.

I am also linking up with the Memory Nest - Crafty Creations #3.


Finally, I played along with Colorful Creations - Recipe Fun for October. The recipe is to use paper of your choice, 2 x embellishments i.e. bling, glitter; and 1 x journal block i.e. sticker sheet or die cut. I used different MME pattern papers, brads, stickers, and twine for my embellishments, and a die-cut journaling block.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

Materials Used:  paper - MME and unknown; letter stickers - thickers; stickers - MME; brads - MME; ink - CTMH; twine - unknown; journaling block - MME.

Thank you for visiting! I really appreciate every comment that is left.

That is one amazing sketch, love how it packs so many photos onto a layout! AND the stitching, omg, why have I never considered stitching through a photo?! I'm loving that look. Thanks for joining in at Paper Girls Challenge Blog.
