Baseball and Beaches

I had a healthy dose of inspiration last night. I'm fighting off this cold and I was stalling taking my nighttime meds. The best way was to just keep busy.

Here is sketch #69 from Sketches in Thyme.
This started out being simple and then I just kept adding to it.

The background is paper from Coredinations. I lightly sanded it a bit just to rough it up.
I then tore a strip of cork and added some shimmery ribbon to it. The photo was matted with a piece from Wild Asparagus. Just for fun, I outlined the whole photo with a piece of twine. This was tied around a package that I just received. No waste!
The title was made from letter stickers by Inspirations.
After I added the seashells, I felt it needed something more. So I popped them back off, added a light layer of glue and dusted it with some sand. The sand and shells are real....from our trip to the Bahamas. :)

My second "try to stay awake" page is for Frosted Designs.

I broke into the scrap box for some fun strips.
The baseball strip and the text strip are from K&Company. Instead of adding smaller photos, I pulled out the memory box and found the tickets from the game that day.
I love adding memorabilia to my pages!

So this was my Thursday night. I'm not going down without a fight, so I'm going to try to get another page done before it's time for my meds.
Enjoy your Friday night!
