First, I want to give a big THANK YOU for all the lovely comments yesterday regarding the Lawn Fawn + Cards for Kids Blog Hop. I absolutely love participating in things like this that are for a great cause. :) If you missed the blog hop, click HERE to start at the beginning. Pure inspiration. :)
Today I have another layout created for Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook 2 Class at Studio Calico. I am a wee bit behind on the sketches (plus I am working out of order) but I am SO enjoying creating layouts based on Kelly's fabulous sketches. It makes me a much faster scrapbooker!
The basics of the sketch had room for a couple of photos near the center of the layout with the journaling next to the photos and a half circle in the upper third of the page and another half circle in the bottom half of the page. I added an additional three photos to my layout (you guys know me...I like incorporating as many photos as possible on my layouts).
I die cut the title using a Silhouette America Digi Die Cut Design.
More layered and tucked-behind-photo tags.
Photo actions for all photos are from the Pioneer Woman HERE (I used the "Old West" action). It was fitting for my photos, yes? ;)

Kerri Bradford's new "Educationish" Digi Die Cut Kit is available HERE.
I absolutely adore this kit.
I will be using this over the weekend for both a back to school layout and a non-school-themed layout.
That alpha block and number block...love. I use these digi design blocks all the time. Seriously.
The alpha border...love. I use these all the time as well. And that font...perfection.
And this is totally not my idea but I'm going to pass it along because it's too brilliant to keep to myself. Kerri suggests using the print & cut feature on the Silhouette with those ruler designs on a transparency! Can you imagine?!!! I am definitely trying that.
These next two items are giveaways I've come across that I want to share with you.
I love this set.
The greetings are just the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. Perfect. And I love the "magic" theme. Perfect for Cards for Kids Drive Cards (and so many other kinds of cards).
In fact, you will be seeing one of these in use in tomorrow's Stampin' Fun Friday video. ;)
Thanks for stopping by tonight. Have a good one. :)
