July Sketchy Thursday at Scraptastic

In case I forgot to explain this, the last Thursday of the month is Sketchy Thursday at Scraptastic's Blog and I  create a Sketch Savvy Sketch for the challenge. Well today I have a sketch that I think most people will enjoy because its easy to adapt to different photo size and embellishments. So visit Scraptastic Club's Blog HERE to see the varied examples from our talented Design Team and then try it yourself for a chance to win a $20 GC from Scraptastic!

Here is the sketch:
For my example I have used the Scraptastic Club July Rock Lobster Kit and Add on kit, along with the Rock Lobster Stamp set. You have to see these fun summer thing - CLICK HERE. I intended to do the 4x4" photos for my layout but that just wasn't going to happen with the cool reflection I have in my photo. I just love the 2 tags in the lower right, of course they can be any shape or embellishment, but it was fun to actually used two tags there.

Now I have to share the image of the Rock Lobster Stamp Set because this whale is tooooo cute and there are alot of good stamps in this set. I stamped him on patterned paper and cut him out. I may be putting whales on lots of pages for awhile. LOL! I also stamped with the large anchor and heat embossing powder. Have you ever mixed embossing powders to make a color that will match your page? Give it a go because I had a blue and a lime green but no turquoise color so I mixed them and it worked perfectly. I have a close up for you a bit lower.
