Saturday Sketches

Evening all!! Thought i'd share a couple of challenge sketches that have been released today.

Firstly, the 'once upon a... sketch' blog has teamed up with 'colour stories inspiration' for this month's challenges!! This means there will be 4 challenges instead of their usual 1, and you only have 9 days to submit them, rather than the whole month!

Here's the first challenge:

For this challenge, you must use :
*the SKETCH provided
* all the colours in the SCHEME
* at least 2 elements from the EVIDENCE 
* at least 1 element from the TESTIMONY!

So, don't forget that this challenge is due 2pm Monday 17th September :D

The second sketch i'm sharing today is the 2nd Kaisercraft Blog Saturday Sketch for September - you have until the end of this month to submit this one :D Now, for some reason they haven't put an actual sketch up, just a layout. They will probably fix this later in the week, so check out the blog before you do it to be sure :D

One more sketch left - The Stuck?! sketch for September is too fabulous not to share:

Isn't it great? Simple but effective - and leaves lots of room for interpretation!!

I had a lovely afternoon at my LSS 'Somewhere to Scrap' doing my monthly Krafty Koncepts class. This is such a fab class and what a fab shop - i can't recommend it enough - their range is unreal, and such a pleasure to shop in as it's light and airy and well laid out. Plus, they have a coffee shop within the shop so you can have a cappuccino while you scrap!!! Love it :D

She's My Girl

How are you going with the monthly challenges so far? I've done two :D

The first one is for the Purple Pumpkin blog challenge which was using this sketch:

I don't really do circles, so i kinda ignored that bit - instead i used a square - edging with black card stock. I've used the black cardstock to edge all of my elements - this is a trend i've noticed recently and it's kinda cool! The PP i've used is some of the She Art papers (LOVE THESE!!!) plus a bit of old basic grey. I've used some ink gold to create the background behind the journaling and my embellies are a mix of Purple Pumpkin and Prima :D





The second challenge i've completed is the Scrap Boutique stylist challenge "Use at least 5 layers of different product on a layout" I LOVE layering right now, so this seemed like a no brainer for me, but i don't really like what i ended up with. Nevermind! Move on :D

The layers i used were - PP background, misting, washi tape, a journal spot (the section that says "You can never have too much happy" is from a Simple Stories 5"x7" set of journal spots - they are very cool!! You can pretty much build a page around them!!), plus lots of embellies :D





I've entered my boy in the Pumpkin Patch 2012 Star Search with this gorgeous photo:
