Week 10 Layout Linky + EMS SKetch Challenge 25

I'm really late posting my layout again this week, but I have a great excuse - pneumonia! Yes, I have been in bed all week, coughing, wheezing, chest pains, etc. Not a fun week. I managed to put together a layout in spite of that (plus having my parents-in-law here and a birthday party to plan), so I'm pretty proud of myself. This week, the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog asked us to create a scene using three or more stamps, which was perfect for this layout. (Actually, I just went back and checked and it was supposed to be a scene on a card, but hopefully they'll forgive my illness-induced confusion!) I used the mountains and clouds from Beautiful Things, the grass from True Happiness, and the bricks from Around the Block, three totally different style stamp sets, yet I think they came together really well. I also used a sketch this week, so feel free to check it out for next week's layout if you like it. Can't wait to see your layouts for week 10, ladies!

The Sketch:

My Layout:

Classmate Alphabet, Extreme Caps, True Happiness, Beautiful Things, Around the Block & Picture Perfect stamp sets
Roughing It stamp set (SU)
Indian Corn Blue, Heavenly Blue, Desert Sand, Autumn Terracotta & Colonial White cardstock
Desert Sand, Garden Green, Grey Wool & Bamboo ink
Grey Wool & Bamboo markers

***If you are participating in the challenge, please use the link below to link your layout to this post. You have until Friday at 11:59PM PST to post your tenth week's layout. The link will allow you to post a title and thumbnail that link to your site, where we can see the layout in all its glory!

love your layout and sketch. Sorry you're not feeling well. Dealing with flu bug here too so I completely understand. I'm now going to go tuck in to bed with son #2. This will be the 3rd or 4th night of sleeping in one of their rooms on a mattress on the floor or in their bed... ugh. Praying for you and yours to get well!
