3 Peas in a Pod - Cocoa Daisy August Sketch and Elle's Studio Use Your Stash

I'm trying to do better about keeping up with my scrapbooking....I have piles and piles of photos to I'm trying to complete at least one layout a week.  This week I decided to play along with Cocoa Daisy's August Sketch challenge, by happy coincidence Elle's Studio is sponsoring a Use Your Stash challenge this week and their papers and tags were perfect for this layout.

These photos are from a couple years ago when we were visiting Andrew's parents.  It's kind of crazy that Carina is now almost as big as Ellie was at the time.

Anyway, I was able to incorporate all sorts of fun goodies.  Elle's Studio papers and tags, BossyJoscie flair, SC veneers, Pretty Little Studio tag, Sketchbook Thickers, lots of things I have been hoarding.  (I'm also going through a craft area move/overhaul and have realized I have a ton of stuff and should stop saving things for 'the perfect time'.)

This one came together quickly and easily and has assuaged my scrapbooking guilt for the week.

Hope your weekend is going well!
