Scrap Our Stash June Sketch +3 Challenge

Hello and welcome!  

Since I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a guest designer over at Scrap Our Stash this month I made this layout for the Sketch +3 Challenge.  I am always inspired by sketches and love this sketch  by Brenda Ragsdale!  It really made for an exciting challenge!!  

My Flavor of the Month kit from The Scraproom had some fabulous papers to chose from so I grabbed some and got started.  I decided to use one large photo instead of 4 smaller photos. I printed out a great shot of my daughter in a 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 size and matted it on white paper.  I thought that with the feather paper being a bit busy I would just keep things clean and simple.  I wrapped the title work around the photo and added a few embellishments.  Then I called it done. 

My +3 are from List 1- Polka Dots, from List 2 - Quartz and from List 3 - Red.  I'm loving how it turned out!  I hope you are too!!

You need to go on over to SOS and join in on the great challenges this month!!  I had fun with them and I know you will too!

Thanks for stopping by and looking today!

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Scrap Our Stash June Guest Designer!!

Welcome to June and to my blog today!!  I'm excited to announce that I was asked to be a guest designer over at Scrap Our Stash this month!  When I heard I will thrilled to bits!  I just love their challenges!  Don't you?  

Their first challenge for June is to be inspired by the book cover for How To Surprise a Dad and to use pops of yellow on your layout too.  The book cover has a father on it and he is reading to his kids so of course I was inspired to use a photo of my goddaughter's husband and her daughter taking one of their first walks together.  She just learned to walk and I think that this photo was just too precious not to scrap!

I used a sketch made by Brenda Ragsdale from her Scrappy Friends challenge this month.  I turned the sketch on it's side and since I was also was inspired by the colors on the mood board from Kelly at Scrappy Friends I pulled these gorgeous papers out to use.  I totally meant to add a butterfly to one of my flowers for Rochelle's part of their group challenge but I left it sitting on my scrap desk!  Oh well....maybe I will remember next time.  (smile)

The papers are from my Flavor of the Month kit from The Scraproom.  YUM!  Aren't they just the best?!  I saw this floral sheet and just had to fussy cut some of the flowers out for my POPS of YELLOW.  I love how they just jump off of that black card stock base.  

I had such fun making this layout!  You need to rush out and join in on these challenges this month too!  Think of all the scrapping you can be inspired to do!  Thanks for dropping by and checking out all the scrappy goodness!! 

Until next time...happy scrapping!
