Layout: Peek-A-Boo!

This next layout features my brother’s dog, Max, who likes to get under comforters and blankets (even if its not even cold!).

Peek a Boo!

Its based on Let’s Get Sketchy’s Week One sketch for March:


I just LOVE all the white space and with that said, it was perfect for ACOT’s Guest Designer Challenge “White Space”! The GD wants us to either concentrate on the top half or bottom half only.

The layout is also for my Fashion Challenge that I host at ACOT. For March, sheer, thin fabric (think spaghetti strapped slinky dresses or silk camisoles) is what’s in fashion. So basically we’re starting to show some skin! I’m having scrappers use a neutral background (white, cream, black, brown, or tan); along with something that would be consider almost see- through. You can use transparency, vellum, a sheer washi or ribbon. AND…if you use ribbon or washi or borders on your project, make them skinny (to represent spaghetti straps)!

Here’s a close up:


The pattern paper strips are by Reminisce, and the transparency and the dog bone paper clip is by Creative Imaginations. The “Love is a four-legged Word” is by Bo Bunny.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: My New Extended Family

I love being challenged, and I usually partake in many challenges over at A Cherry On Top. PLUS I LOVE sketches! So while working on this layout that needed to use a transparency and washi tape (Technique Challenge), I managed to use this week’s Nuts About Sketches Sketch AND combine with ACOT’s Guest Designer Jouraling Spot/Tag Challenge (decorating journaling card(s)).

My NEW Extended Family

This layout is for my Mom’s album that I’m working on. This is the first page for the 5th installment. It was taken in 2007, one day after mine and hubby’s wedding. Its my parents, me and my hubby and his family (mom, grandparents, aunts, and a cousin) at our favorite restraunt.

Here’s a more detailed look at the decorated journaling cards and border

I used mostly Webster’s Pages “Park Drive” collection. And here’s the sketch I used:

Thanks for looking! 🙂
