Sketchabilities reveal

May is finally here and I can reveal my latest layout for Sketchabilities! Our Poor Trees! This is a layout about our poor trees after a Derecho blew through in July of 2008. Our back yard looked like a war zone. I used the Pebbles line So that line! I cut a tree from Paper Dolls and used the negative space and misted my background. I heat/wet embossed the tree embellishments. The journalling block was cut with a spellbinder's die and then misted. Then I added some Robin's Nest dew drops. And vioala...Our Poor Trees! I'm putting this into a WeR Memory Keepers album and using those photo pages for all my extra photos! LOVE that idea!

Journalling reads: On the morning of July 21st (5:30am), sustained widespread 90+ mph winds blew through. A Derecho caused massive damage all over, our poor trees included. Several hickories topped, a couple snapped and one fell with in 4 feet of our house. Our Oaks lost numerous limbs. We had to buy a chain saw, borrow a cart for our lawn tractor, and hire a bucket truck to remove limbs still stuck in the trees. It took over 2 weeks of constant work to clean everything up.

So...make sure you check out the Sketchabilities blog:
