A friend of mine was actually scrapping with it a few weekends ago and a few layouts after, I found myself gravitating towards its grid design that is so infectious. Here is what I came up with, along with a few close-ups:
Yes, that's a photo of what seems like an ugly pair of sneakers. But to me, it's a photo of my mother's feet, wearing her pair of sneakers she always uses to mow the lawn. Priceless, if you ask me. So, I used tons and tons and tons of Simple Stories' Homespun collection on this one - totally à propos if I do say so myself (12X12 Simple Basics kit, 6X6 patterned papers, chipboard stickers, bits & pieces, and expressions stickers), but also added some Tim Holtz rubons and foliage, a My Little Yellow Bicycle cork heart pin, and a Stampin' Up arrow paper clip. I also punched some tiny hearts from the Simple Stories Homespun 6X6 patterned papers using a Martha Stewart punch (graciously lent to me by a fellow scrapper - you know who you are!). And that green triangle on the bottom left? It's totally hiding a scrappy blunder as I was finishing another layout. Scrappy opportunity at its finest! Hee!Hee!
Want to see a few other layouts I've made using this sketch? Here they are:
