Anna's Craft Cupboard August Sketch

Things have been very quite on the scrapping front for me over the last week or so.  Sometimes I have to force myself to put everything else aside and make time for me - which is exactly what I did on Sunday night after everyone had gone to bed.  I was in the mood to scrap with a sketch and what better inspiration than Wendy's sketch for August over at Anna's Craft Cupboard.  Here is the sketch:
And this is my take on it - using a photo of the three men in my life in one of the many paddocks of Sorghum Tony planted this year. The photo was taken just a few days before the harvest began.:
And some close ups of the details - some goodies from Typo, vintage Heidi Swapp, October Afternoon, Greatest View and The Twinery.
I always knew that I wanted to include extra journalling on the layout but wasn't sure of how to incorporate it.  A bit of blog surfing found me on Kim Jeffress's blog and being inspired by her use of different techniques for incorporating hidden journalling was just the solution.  I had one of these little chevron bags sitting in my stash so I slipped it underneath the patterned paper and tucked the journalling inside.  I sprayed the bag with orange mist as the white background wasn't working for me. I hope Kim would approve lol.
I am quite pleased with the end result and will definitely be revisiting this sketch again soon - just need to find the time.
Hope your week is treating you well.

Love your take on the sketch. Your layout turned out great. And it is hard to find time for yourself, but so worth the effort! :)
