Sketch-'n-Scrap - Sketch #31

Happy Tuesday!!  The second Sketch-n-Scrap sketch is up on the blog and I want to share it with you!  This is the last sketch I'll be doing as a GD for Sketch-'n-Scrap and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lisa and Jewels for having me play with them!  I had so much fun!!

Let's have a look at the new sketch . . .

And my take on it . . .

Products:  Authentique, Tim Holts
I stuck pretty close to the sketch for this layout and only swapped the 3 photos for 1 bigger one!  I chose not to add to much embellishments to this layout and I really love the end result!

You have until the end of the month to play along with us @ Sketch-'n-Scrap and don't forget to check out the lovely work from the DT!

Happy scrapping, Friends!!

Scrap Africa - Sketch Challenge #16

This is going to be a quick post today to share with you the new sketch challenge from Scrap Africa.  Let's have a look at the sketch . . .

And here is what I've done with the sketch . . .

Products:  Carta Bella, FabScraps, Teresa Collins, Martha Stewart
 This is for my Europe vacation which will be next month.  Going to Europe is a life-long dream of mine, and finally it's coming true.  When I found this quote on Pinterest it really struck a cord with me and I knew I wanted to use it on this page.  This will be the cover page for my travel album.  Here are a few close-up's . . .

I use my new Teresa Collins "Far & Away" stamps, and them embossed it to create the air balloons. I love how they turned out!!

You have 2 weeks to play along with the Scrap Africa team.  I can't wait to see what you create with it!!  Happy Scrapping!!

Here is the sketch Lisa sent me for the April 1st challenge.  A found it a great sketch to work with!!

And here is my take on the sketch . . .

Products:  Kaisercraft, Prima
I used lots of these gorgeous Kaisercraft Marigold collection papers to create lots of layers on this page.  I loved the quote from the moment I say it and knew I had to use it on a page!!  I swapped the 4 photos for one 5" x 7" landscape photo, and added lots of flowers and embellishments.

The Sketch-'n-Scrap Design Team has created fabulous page for you to admire on the site . . . go and have a look!!  Remember you have the whole month to upload your creations.  Have FUN!!!
