Another layout, anyone?

I know, another challenge layout.  This time Kelly chose a Page Maps sketch for the Summer Nights challenge.  I loved the sketch and was so happy with how my layout turned out! 

This sketch has been showing up all over Pinterst since we did it over at Scrap Chicks.  I had a lot of fun with it and was proud of myself for actually using my machine to sew on it and for changing the thread to brown.  I tend to just use white thread on everything 🙂
I hope you’re having a great week!  Go be crafty!

I like it a lot

I posted on Facebook the other day that I made a layout and I liked it 🙂  That doesn’t happen with every layout I make!
This one was based on a sketch for the Helmar June challenge.  I don’t own any Helmar goodies, so I can’t enter their contest, but I loved the sketch so I thought I’d go ahead and use it!

I don’t usually like the look of photos cut into shapes, but I think the circle looks really cute here.

I hope you’re having a great weekend!

A challenge layout!

Over at Scrap Chicks they’re doing a weekly challenge.  Last week we had and hour and twenty minutes to do up a layout using a sketch we were given.  We were warned about how many pictures we would need, but that was about it.
Well, I got started late and didn’t actually turn the layout in on time, but it’s still pretty cute and I had a lot of fun playing along. 

A little bird even told me that she was going to use it for an inspiration of the day over at Sassy Lil’ Sketches.  How cool is that?
Here’s to hoping that I can get my layout done in time this week! :D

The June Chicken Scratch Sketch

Over at Scrap Chicks there’s a monthly sketch challenge.  I’m sure that I’ve said before that I love using sketches when I have some layouts to get done and feel like I’m all out of mojo.  The sketch this month was really cute and I used it right away after it was posted.

And here’s what I did with it.

The pictures are actually from Hanukkah a couple of years ago.  (I’m a tad behind on my scrapping if you hadn’t noticed).  If you use the sketch, come on over to Scrap Chicks and share it with everyone!

Layout and Sketch Class!

Wow.  Things have been a little crazy around here.  My youngest has pneumonia.  One of the twins has Influenza A.  I still have party decorations up.  Not a lot of crafty time happening around here.
I did get about a half hour yesterday to run into my room and scrap.  Over at Scrap Chicks (link is over on the side bar) there is a sketch class going on this month.  I LOVE sketches.  Whether you just don’t have any mojo or you’re short on time, a sketch can really help you to get some layouts done!  I hope you like it!
