Ally Scraps - February Sketch Contest

Well, i decided to try my luck at another contest, this time, for Ally Scraps.  Check out the blog - you will find amazing sketches and ideas!!! You must know how much i love double-page layouts by now since that is mostly what you will find on this blog, so as soon as i saw this wonderful sketch from Debbie Gaydos, i just had to play!

My layout:  Shakespeare in the Park
 These photos, dating from way back in 2005, have been waiting for a layout for a long time - hehe  It is our tradition, my friend Line and I, to attend the Shakespeare by the Sea festival in Halifax, NS every Summer (or every other Summer now if we can - life has unfortunately gotten in the way these last few years).  It is always an amazing time so it was so nice to reminisce on those precious moments while working on this layout.  I have used Basic Grey's Curio collection, some swirly bling from ZvaCreative, chipboard from The Dusty Attic, leaves by Petaloo, writing-theme 3-d embellishments from Jolee's Boutique, and the title was made with the Cricut cartridge Lyrical Letters.

As mentioned above, the ink bottle, the scroll and the tip of the pen are Jolee's stickers... but i added the feather to make a quill pen (as i had already used the quill pen from the Jolee's set for another layout).  The feather was originally red, but i painted it black using Tim Holtz' Adirondack alcohol ink.

As Shakespeare himself would say "Farewell, dear friends... and good luck go with thee!"
