Sweet threads and my i-top

Thanks to a few friends of mine, I have come to love Basic Grey so when I saw the Sweet Threads collection I just had to have it. When it arrived I was very initmidated by the colors and bold patterns so I put it on the shelf until I could figure out just what to do. But when I saw the photo of me and my best friend from high school I was inspired by the designs on our shirts to use Sweet Threads. I wanted to "junk up" the layout (as me and Mika always say) and bring out the bold patterns and colors. I wished I had purchased the matching brads until I said to myself, "Silly, isn't that is why you have that i-top brad maker on the shelf?" I answered "yes" to myself and got to work. I love that tool and my brads came out perfectly!My layout was inspired by this Scrap Room sketch and will be my first time paticipating in a challenge over at Sketches in Thyme. This is for the open challenge where you can create a layout based off any sketch you wish-
