Sketches in Thyme sketch with scraps

July has really gotten away from me.  I don't think I have had one completely crafty weekend all month...well, maybe one.  So this weekend, after reaching my maximum upload limit on Evernote.  (I have an extreme amount of craft supplies to catalog.)  I have finally gotten a chance to resume some scrapbooking.  Lastly I worked on my honeymoon album, so I thought I would switch it up and work on my 2013 vacation.  I was searching through sketches to use and found this one and immediately had the idea for the heart sketched behind this picture.  I loved the way it turned out.  I must credit my sister for the photo.  We took this vacation together and I used a lot of her photos.  She has a great camera and I was lucky enough to take photos with it during this vacation, too.  These are her and her husbands hand prints and wedding rings.

Here's the sketch I used from Sketches in Thyme:

Close ups
You can make out a little of the orange flecks that were in this sand.  I used some coral and orange papers to highlight the unique color.  We were on Ocean Isle in North Carolina.

Bazzill card stock base
Creative Memories CCS heart templates (for tracing)
Tattered Angels Cork & Copper Penny shimmer spray inks
Prima marker A94 umber
Distress marker frayed burlap
assorted scrap papers and materials
