Challenge Entry: Sketchy Thursdays 11.3

Here is my latest scrap layout, this time with a family photo.

The photo I used is one we took at the Madagascar attraction at Universal Studios Singapore. We took our family there for some recreation when they came over for a short visit in July 2011. :)

Close up on the details of my layout.

I am happy with how my LO turned out.  I tried out a new technique here - distressing.  And I used acetate for the first time.  :)

Here's my layout recipe.

Base: Coredinations
Cardstock: Coredinations
DP: DCWV The Travel Stack (textured), Graphic 45 An ABC Primer Collection Grammar School
Stamps: Inkadinkado Vintage Expressions, tag mounted rubber stamp from a local craft store
Ribbon and Twine: American Crafts, Sew Easy
Punches: EK Success vertical slot punch, Martha Stewart edge punch
Flower and Brad: Prima, Sei
Texts: Heidi Swapp World Traveler (title foam sticker), Making Mermories Charmed Words (metal charm), Mark Richard Crystal Stickers (number)
Chipboard Embellishment: All About Scrapbooking

Here's the original sketch.

I would also like to enter my LO project to Truly Scrumptious - Bingo Challenge.

It's me,
