ETA: Did you see the new Matchbox Staples at Graphic 45?! They come in three sizes: 12x12, 8x8 and traditional matchbook dimensions of 3x5x1 and 1/2 inches! I cannot wait to work with these!
I have a project that is a Graphic 45 "left over" from Winter CHA, plus a sketch I made for you.
I love sketches. I never start a page layout unless I have a sketch sitting on the desk. I will either draw one or use one I found online. There are times when I pull a few layouts that I like and combine them into a new sketch!

I made this layout with Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers. I love this paper line, especially the teal and rust colors, with that little bit of green and black. Yum! When I saw the vintage photo, I knew I had to make a layout. I just love everything about the photo and the layout. In fact, I think I'll pretend this is my great-grandmother just so I can put this in my scrapbook album.
I inked the chipboard bits to match the paper, and then added the fabulous flowers. You can see a bit of metal frame poking out also. I really enjoy putting these little surprises on layouts.
I rolled a bit of the paper and placed it into the little bottle. Just a little extra touch.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout today. Check back tomorrow for more inspiration!
