All smiles

Happy Thursday. It means another week on Sketches in Thyme challenge. We are now launching sketch #79. It’s a double page layout but you may convert to a single page. Just like my take :)
Here’s the sketch and my layout:

A little story behind the pict:
Every Saturday, some main roads in Jakarta are closed for motor-vehicle. We call it “Car-free day.” For about seven hours, no cars allowed to pass. People of Jakarta spend morning until afternoon to ride on bike, jogging, play football, held bazaar, aerobic, or just walking around and have breakfast. Yes, all those activity took place on the main roads. We are free from traffic jam and hectic vehicle.

On these pictures, as you can see, we were so sooooo happy. Cheering ourselves while riding bicycle. My hubby ride on front while I was sitting on the rear side. Really love this picture and the moment especially since I leave Jakarta and move to a tiny village on other island. This “big city moment” was romantic :)

And the sketch, super-fun. I’m free to turn it left-right-upside-and-down. The result is same: Fun. So I kinda twist the sketch, but I hope you can still see it.

Onto some close-ups:
I’m using Webster’s Page Clean&Simple as background and Bo Bunny Ambrosia Marigold as part of my embellishment.
Ribbon flower along the pictures and I put a painted owl chipboard at the end.

These are real flowers. They were dried so they can last long as an embellishment. I love it but unfortunately this is my only flower left :(

For this bold colors layout, I chose to put some bold-little-flowers. They were made from recycled materials and I bought them from local store. Handmade by local crafters :)

The title: all smiles. I’m smiling, hubby’s smiling.

Don’t forget to submit your layout. The deadline is May 31st. Please kindly click Sketches in Thyme challenge blog and you can see the works from our super-talented Mavens. Happy crafting dear fellas. See ya :)
