Here is my take on the sketch. I am really trying not to do the sketch exactly as is, so I rotated this one.
Don't forget about the other challenges going on right now at Scrapbook Challenges. You have until the end of the month to complete all the challenges, and for each challenge or sketch that you do, you get an entry into the drawing for the prize, this month's sponsor is Inque Boutique!
This is another layout for AMR's crop this past weekend. This was Heather's 1st challenge, to scraplift her layout, both in design and theme-your favorites today!
I used Bazzill cs, Scribble Scrabble pp, American Crafts Thickers, and hand drawn (with ruler of course) border.
This is Sandy's Challenge at AMR, as the spotlighted member this month. This challenge was a bit more involved...Use colors from your picture on your LO. Use one picture. The object of this challenge is to use only colors that are in your photo. Pick at least 3 colors from your picture; now pick these same colors for your cardstock, patterned paper and embellishments. Use at least 3 embellishments. Try to stay with the same or similar colors in the picture. No other colors can be used unless you are using rub-ons, and they can be any color. Distress some of your cs/pp using an emery board, file, sandpaper or distressing tool. Ink or chalk some edges.
I used Bazzill cs, Basic Grey Blush scraps (red), Cosmo Cricket Strip Teases, 7-Gypsies pp (I think), Glitz Chipboard birdies, misc arrow brads and some buttons. The circles and squares were made with Cuttlebug dies, Funky Circles and Funky Squares. One more AMR challenge, for now anyway, was Debbie's challenge, make a layout about something life changing. While her example was a bit sad, mine wasn't so much (she said this event can be joyous). I used Bazzill Dotted Swiss cs, Melissa Francis pp, MM Noteworthy journal card and die cuts, Kaiser Crafts flowers and pearls, and American Crafts Thickers.
This card is for Cuttlebug Challenges, make a Halloween of Fall card, using the Cuttlebug of course, lol! I used Bazzill cs, Boo To You embossing folder, scalloped circle Nestabilities, classic oval Nestabilities, Quickutz Cat die for the swirls, and Quickutz scooter die for the stem. I had a lot of fun making this one! I MUST thank tigardlilly for letting me use her dies and folders, or none of this would be possible. While I have a Cuttlebug, I only have a tiny bit of stuff for it, and none of it applied to this challenge.
This card is for another Cuttlebug Challenge Blog, The Cuttlebug Spot. This challenge was to color your embossing. I used my newly found Prisma colored pencils and colored the Stylized Flowers embossing, then used the 2x6 Flowers die for the flowers. I don't like the flowers that are on the embossing folder, so adhered my own flowers on instead, lol! I finalized it with a Studio G stamp.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know a bit about my financial situation and my current lack of scrapbooks, lol! I decided to make my own "temporary" scrapbook that should get my by until I can afford to buy one, probably 2 new scrapbooks. I found my extra page protectors and used the chipboard in that packaging. Using the "strips" that came with them, my trusty Crop-O-Dile, and some extra posts I had lying around, I made a scrapbook!
The finished product! I know it is ghetto, but at least they are in one place and fairly protected.
Tigardlilly came over today to scrapbook with me, since she had today off! As you probably know, I live with my parents and I scrapbook in my room, right next to the bed. Hubby helped me put the bed against the window, went to the garage to un-bury my regular scrapbooking table, and we had a crop!! Notice my cat??? He is always getting into something!!
Here is the view from the closet, sorry about the lights, that is all I have to scrap with-hence all my terrible layout photos!! You can really tell how small this room is!
I didn't feel very well today, so I didn't get as much done as I would have liked to. I still have 12 challenges to do and a couple swaps. It never seems to end, as soon as I get a couple challenges done, there are more ready to start! I DO enjoy it though! Hopefully I will have more for you tomorrow!
I apologize for the spacing, I think Blogger is freaking out tonight, lol.
