Layouts (2)

I had fun with this.  For one, it's using a sketch, something which is out of my routine.  I'm such a non-conformist that I don't even follow what I sketch, if at all.  But for this layout, I made sure I kept to the details of a sketch, just to get out of my comfort zone.
The other fun aspect is the Dymo lettering on cardstock.  I have wanted to do this for the longest time.  I finally found the old Dymo clickity labeler and, after experimenting with the width of cardstock and the amount of pressure, embossed the words and inked over them.  The next experiment will be to use cardstock with a white core and sand the embossed words.
