Good morning, crafty friends! My daughter recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Tennessee and I couldn't be more proud of her accomplishments. She sent me some pictures from her graduate photo shoot and I wanted to get started scrapping them right away. The current sketch from Let's Get Sketchy inspired my first layout.

Good morning! Today I'm sharing the layout I created for my guest spot at Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. The focus is thrift store finds. One of the first things I always look for when I go thrift shopping is tea cups. I love to collect them and I'm always thrilled when I find them. I also love to check out the old books section. The book page on my layout is from one of the books I've picked up recently from a thrift store near me. The brown envelope that my photo is on I also picked up there. It was in a gallon sized baggy chocked full of these brown envelopes in various sizes. I had originally got them because I thought they would work well in a junk journal and I've been wanting to make one for a while now. I just haven't started yet...one of these days. I also recycled a Tim Holtz package backing into my layers under the photo. The tags remind me of the price tags you see at some of the shops. The pearls, watch, and tea cup charm remind me of the costume jewelry typically found in most thrift shops. I distressed everything to give it a worn feeling, keeping in tune with the thrift shop vibes.
