Getaway Day - Process Video
Ah, the luxury of sneaking off for a day of shopping! Well, my husband knows where I am so I'm not sure who I'm sneaking off from but it sounds better if it is illicit. It has been 2 or three years since I took a day to go to my favorite mall in Charlotte. I had a lovely day of browsing stores and searching for the perfect drinking glasses. Came up empty on that one, but I did find a couple of things I wanted. Mostly I browse and just get a break from home which is especially nice in winter.
For the page, I'm doing a LOAD challenge to use something besides scrapbooking sources for inspiration. My inspiration for the page is from the window at Anthropologie. I loved their window and had snapped a photo of it. The photo led me to some products from a Simon Says Stamp card kit with the What's Up! collection from Basic Grey.
I used one of the sketches from my sketch book to make this page go super fast. There is a lot of stitching including some casual (very casual as I didn't have them premarked) swags at the top of the page.
I love these vellum die cuts that came with the kit. They really go with that window display.
Here's the video at YouTube:
Thanks for stopping by today. The sketch is part of the Sketches PDF.
