DCWV May Challenge

HOWDY ALL!

I played along with the Challenge over at DCWV. I had to use this sketch:
and here is my first take, I LOVE the way this turned out, you know I "sometimes" see things differently that the average person! That's JUST ME! LOL!:
Do you see it? SO, I tried again, here is my second take on the sketch:
So, maybe it's the fact that I didn't have the right amount of pics, but I LOVE these DCWV Birthday papers and just HAD to use them!
Sorry, I got to cut this short, but it's been storming ALL day and we had a tornado hit just 5 miles down the road and then Sedalia got hit yet AGAIN!! TORNADO ALLEY! GEESH! I gotta get off of the puter cause it looks like ANOTHER storm is heading my way! Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and taking a look! STAY SAFE if you are in a Stormy Area!

Pool Fun!

HOWDY ALL!

I couldn't sleep last night, so I got up and worked on this layout. I finished it this morning, but just finally got the pic taken and am getting it uploaded.

I found this sketch over at Scrapbooking Ali at the first of the month. I knew I wanted to use it, so I saved it, of course I didn't make her deadline.
BUT, I did use the sketch with a Color Challenge over at The (paper) Trail Makers! Their challenge was to use this Color Combo:
Here is my layout:
Left Side:
Right Side:
Pool Fun: Reminisce
Large Journal Box: CM
All the rest is: Cosmo Cricket Snorkel

This layout is 3 of my 4 grandkids. I had them for the day last summer and they had a BLAST playing in the pool!

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and taking a look! I hope you play along over at The (paper) Trail Makers!

I have been playing along with Nuts About Sketches. They posted a BUNCH of sketches and you have until tonight to link up for a chance to win some goodies.

I didn't get as many of them done as I wanted, but have the sketches saved cause they are just AWESOME!

This is the sketch from May 2nd :
Here is my take:
The paper is from DCWV School Stack. I cut the title with Plantin Schoolbook, the stars, lace and journal spot are from my stash. This is also for a challenge on a yahoo group to only use 1 layer! I couldn't layer ANYTHING, which was VERY HARD for me to do, but I really like how this turned out. Clean and Simple!
