Now this sketch was  bit of a challenge for me because I usually only scrap one photo on a page.  I had a lot of fun and  I am always up for a challenge!  I used the January 2016 Clique Kit that featured the Happy Place collection by Fancy Pants Designs!  This kit is still available in the CK shop if you have had your eye on it!  I also used some new star dies from Maya Road!  I just love the way these cut and they are the perfect size for layout and cards and who does not love the aqua color of these dies!  Super cute!

The Crew – Sketch Challenge with Oh Snap Gonzo

Hello everyone!  I am here to share a layout with you today using the Hello Heather collection by Pretty Little Studio!  You can find a lot of the products I used in the Clique Kits shop!  I did pick up some of the Hello Heather pieces from the Pretty Little Studio Shop!  I am using a sketch today for inspiration and doing this challenge with Oh Snap Gonzo.  I used sketches when I am feeling low on the crafty mojo!  I have a Pinterest board called A Little Sketchy that has some of my favorite sketches and I add to it often!


The sketch has three photos but I decided to use one 4×6 on my layout!  I love how simple this sketch is and kept my layout pretty close to the sketch as I could.


I love all the bits of black in this collection and anything with polka dots is a plus for me!  The photo I used is of my and Sandra and our daughters when they came up to visit us just recently!  We had a great time and the girls were so glad to finally meet in person!  They had recently been talking via text message and video messenger!  It was so cute to hear them talking and when they finally did see each face to face it was like a movie as they ran up together with open arms and gave each other a big hug!  It is amazing the people you meet in this community and because of my love for scrapbooking I have a friendship with someone who I would have probably never met if it was not for this hobby of mine!

I did add some of the new Bella Blvd enamel hearts to my layout and you can pick them up in the Clique Kits shop!  They are so perfect I just love them and want them in every color!


I hope you enjoy my layout and give this sketch a try!  If you decide to try out this sketch please tag me on social media cause I would love to see it!  To see my process check out my YouTube video below!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful day!



Sketch Challenge Layout

Hey everyone!  I am back with another layout for you and today I am using the January 2016 Clique Kit featuring the Happy Place collection from Fancy Pants Designs!  This  kit is so jam packed of goodness!

The layout is for a challenge with Sandy Gonzalez (Oh Snap Gonzo) and it is a sketch challenge!  Here is a look at the sketch we used!


And he is a look at my completed layout using the January Clique Kits!



I love these two photos of Eli James on his birthday!  He had the best time ever and I miss all his long hair!  They grow up way to quick!  This kit is so fun and I can not wait to create more layouts with it!  The mists that I use to create some water color look in the background can be found in the Clique Kits shop HERE.  I love how vibrant they are and they are super affordable!  I used the Strawberry Dacquiri and Mango Lemonade! Sounds delicious right! Well the colors definitely are!  We would love to have you join in on the sketch challenge with us!  Tag us on social media with your projects or post a video and tag us!  We can not wait to see what you come up with!  Thanks so much for stopping and enjoy your day!
