Pearl – Layout 9

While I already think anything October Afternoon makes is “out of this world,” I think today’s steal, the October Rocket Age Collection, is like the freeze dried ice cream of the astronaut’s diet. Absolutely yummy! :)

Today we’re in for a double dose of wonderful as we’re treated to the delights of this month’s guest sketcher, Erica Bass. It’s always so fun to see what wonderful talents our happy ScrapbookSteals.com community has to offer.

When I was asked to be the ScrapbookSteals guest sketcher the converstation went like this:

Kristy Lee: Sooooo….. How do you feel about being the Guest Sketcher for ScrapbookSteals in September?  C’mon.  I know you wanna.  <3 Let us know!  :)

Erica Bass: Ummmm…. Let me think about that for two seconds….. Uh, yeah! I’m super psyched! Details please? :D

I’m still super psyched to be sharing October Afternoon Rocket Age with you! This line has the feel of a vintage T-shirt. It has slightly muted brights combined with deep blues and soft vanillas. It was so fun to work with. The hardest part was narrowing down which pictures to use for the sketch because I had so many that would work with this line.

I was really excited that this kit comes with a 12 x 12 sheet of Chip ‘n Stick chipboard stickers and a package of super cute rubber charms. I had to wrestle it away from my son a couple times!

Like I said, I really had a hard time choosing which pictures to scrap, so I made up one more sketch for you.


The label sticker sheets are so convenient for adding a little extra touch. Here I used the small labels to create a word collage.

I really enjoyed working with October Afternoon’s Rocket Age! I can’t wait to see all of the different interpretations of the sketches this week!
