SC Sunday Sketch & 500th post!

So i noticed it's my 500th post today! But i haven't been organised enough to arrange anything special. i thought it was worth a mention though. Here's to the next 500!

My big news this week is that we got the flat that we liked and are planning to move at the beginning of July, so yay for that!! So the next month is going to be spent purging and packing. Fun times!

i have been in a weird mood this week. i've had lots of time on my hands but zero inspiration for scrapping. So i used this week's sketch from Studio Calico. It's taken from a page by last month's guest designer Jennifer Johner.

i loved her page so much i just lifted the whole design of the sketch. i wasn't planning on having quite so much journaling but i can talk some if i'm given the opportunity, the page looks kind of unbalanced now but i'd rather have my thoughts down, so it's ok.

i find it difficult to use embellishments so it was fun to be able to use so many on this page. i love that Girl's Paperie paper soooo much, it's yummy! The theme for this page was inspired by some lyrics by The Killers. I often find ideas for layouts from lyrics, even if i don't actually use them on the page.

i'm off to Bournemouth to hang out with my sister and my dad for the weekend so have a great one! And if you're in the UK, enjoy your extra day off!
