Scrap The Boys - Feb Challenge

Trying to get back to creating a few more masculine LO's as I have been geared towards girlie pages lately, so I thought I would try this month's challenge at Scrap The Boys which is a sketch challenge.

Holiday Memories
I decided to stick pretty much to the sketch on this LO and had a bit of fun with some ink, glimmermist and a Crafter's Workshop template for my background.  Went for a bit of grunge and texture which are techniques I love to use on a masculine LO.

List of Materials
Basic Grey, Bo Bunny, 7 Gypsies & Graphic 45 pp's
Crafter's Workshop template
Scrapmatts chipboard
EK Success binder punch
7 Gypsies tape
Tim Holtz negative trim
Kaisercraft rubons
Versa Magic chalk ink - tea leaves
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - walnut
Glimmermist - coffee shop
October Afternoon alpha stickers
EK Success alpha stickers
Vintage ticket
Sneak Peak
