Imaginisce May Sketch Challenge!

HOWDY ALL!

I played along with Imaginisce for their May Sketch Challenge. I had to use this sketch:
I did two layouts and mirrored the sketch and made these:
These are my 4 Grandchildren and I did a "My Girls" and a "My Boys" page. The journalling says"Little Girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice":


Here is a close up of the Flower (which I made in my February Sketch when I won the Challenge, you can find the how to here).
and here is a close-up of the Crown, I stamped the heart and leaves on Imaginisce paper and then cut them out and used pop dots on them, also used Silver Tinsel Embossing Powder:

Here is the Boys side and the Journalling says "Little Boys are made of snips and snails and puppy dog tails":

and here is a close-up of the little frog, I stamped it twice and then cut out some pieces and put them on pop dots to make the legs and head stand out, I also added brads for his eyes:



I used paper from Imaginisce Love Me collection. The Crown and Frog stamps are stamps from
The Fairest of them All collection. I also added A little Scooter Dog from Scooters Vacation Collection. I used Glimmer Mist in Pink Bubblegum and Denim Blue. The letters are Timeless Alphas from The Paper Studio. I used CTMH Blush and Outdoor Denim inks.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Have a GREAT Day,

Sketchy Thursday June Guest DT Challenge

HOWDY ALL!

I thought I would try my hand once again for Sketchy Thursday's Guest Design Team. I had to use this sketch:
and here is my take on it, of course I had to flip and flop to get it to go with my pic, but I think you can still tell that I used the sketch for my inspiration:


here is just a close up of my Lil' Buddy, he was having fun playing in the sink!

My Minds Eye Challenge 11 Anything Goes

HOWDY ALL!

WHEW! Where has May gone to? OH YEAH, I remember I went back to work!! UGH!! I didn't like the fact that I hurt my knee and was off work for 3 months. BUT, I must say that I did enjoy the time working on my albums!! LOL! I completed LOTS of layouts and am happy to be back to work so now I can buy scrappin' goodies again!! WOOHOO!!

This is the first layout I have done since going back to work on May 3rd. This is for My Mind's Eye Challenge 11:Anything Goes

Here are the rules:
Design an "Anything Goes” layout or other project based on this fabulous sketch by Anam Stubbington.


Use ANY My Mind’s Eye products (current or past) you’d like as long as your project has at least 80% My Mind’s Eye products.

So here is my take: (This is my Grandson Dominic, "My Lil' Buddy" playing outside in May 2008) I SOO wish I could know what he was thinking! LOL!

I used papers from the Bella Bella and Wild Asparagus Collections. The "imagine" chipboard title is from Colorbok and I won it during Creative Scrapper's Blog Hop from Taj White! THANKS, Girlie!! The buttons are from my stash.

Here is a close-up of the title:

I wanted it to be a green to coordinate with the papers, but didn't have the "right" color, so I used Glimmer Mist in Frozen Lake and Coffee Shop and was THRILLED with how it came out!

Here is a close-up of my "sewing", I wanted a nice zig zag, and even tried it out on a scrap piece of paper, but when I was stitching on the actual layout, it came out CRAZY, but I LOVE IT!! I SOOO Love when a "screw-up" is better than what I wanted!! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, I hope my layout qualifies for your challenge, My Mind's Eye!!

Have a GREAT Day,
