Hello everyone. I had some time over the weekend to get 2 layouts done featuring pics that were taken over 3 years ago. Penny and Bella were playing in the pool. I used Echo Park “Splash” collection and even my SewEasy on the first layout.
My first layout of the new year features my aunt and uncle at my grandparents’ birthday party from 2012. It is based on several challenges, including a sketch!
First, Let’s Get Sketchy offered a very fun challenge for Week 5 – BINGO! I chose the last row across – Butterflies (3 stickers); Chipboard (title and heart); Frame; Stitching; and Doily. I also used Sketchabilities sketch #106 for my design:
This layout is also my example for the January 2014 Fashion Challenge at ACOT that I host each month. This month, scarves are in fashion, and not just ordinary scarves. But scarves with fun details – polka dots, ribbon, sequins, etc. And you have to have at least 3 layers. There are more details about the challenge over at A Cherry On Top.
I used mostly Basic Grey “Hopscotch” products – papers, chipboard, 3D stickers – which I thought was perfect with this happy photo of my aunt and uncle. The mist is by Tattered Angels; border punch is Martha Stewart; ribbon is Pink Paislee and the doily and bling are from my stash.
My first layout features my parents’ dog, Kandie. I used mostly Basic Grey’s “Max & Whiskers” collection, along with washi tape by Queen & Co, and my SewEasy:
Its based on NAS -Week 281, as well as ACOT’s “What’s on TV Challenge?” where our subject had to be during two or more different days. The top photo of Kandie is from Sept 2012 and the bottom two were taken in Dec 2012:
My second layout features me with my brother’s dog, Max, and my dog Ruby Mae. Other than cardstock and washi tape, all products are from Basic Grey’s “Konnichiwa” collection.
This one is based on NAS – Week 282 and ACOT – “What is old is new again” Challenge, where we had to use a paper that we usually bypass. I’m a big Basic Grey fan, and I usually love all papers/embellishments that they come out with. But with the “Konnichiwa” collection, I only loved half of it. I kept by-passing the papers, trying to figure out what to do with them. So I figured I’d sit down and USE those papers and I think the layout came out quite nicely. The sketch helped alot too!
