ACOT Becky Fleck Sketch Challenge #104

This was my submission for the sketch challenge.  I wanted to add a little more details AND get a  straighter photo but I ran out of time (the story of my life) but it turned out to be a fun layout featuring my granddaughter, Paige and her BFF, Jill in Avalon NJ this past summer. Used mostly Fancy Pants awesome summer collections.

I am now part of the Sketches in Thyme Design Team

I am so excited and honored to be a Maven!  The team I will be assigned to will be announced later today and I can't wait to see what talented ladies I will be working with. 

If my back wasn't hurting today, I'd be jumping up and down doing the Happy Dance!

I used another fabulous sketch from Sketches in Thyme for this layout.  This is also for the ACOT October Title Challenge which was to include some type of weather/precipitation.  I took this picture of my driveway this morning to show how wet it is from all the rain we've had the past couple of days.

I used lots of Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine accents, Echo Park dies for the clouds and a rain drop stencil with Ranger Fades Jeans Distressed Ink.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend.

I loved this sketch from Sketches in Thyme and had the perfect photos.  I used mostly the fabulous Pinkfresh Studio Papers and Embellies. I also used a Heidi Swapp Stencil with Ranger Texture Paste along with various inks and sprays.  I'm happy with the outcome!

It is almost the end of September (YIKES) and the beginning of October.  I host a monthly challenge on a Cherry On Top and now I've got to come up with an idea for next month. In the meantime, here is September's challenge.  It is a Manufacturer Challenge and September is the letter "S"!

Way Too Long

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted to my blog.  Life sometimes gets in the way but I HAVE continued to be creative.  Last month (August) I was the Guest Designer on A Cherry On Top.  I created five challenges for the Cherries to participate in.

The first challenge was to create a layout featuring WATER.

 The second challenge was to create a layout about an OUTDOOR ACTIVITY.

The third challenge was to create a layout about a GUILTY PLEASURE.

The fourth challenge was to create a layout featuring a LOVED ONE and a bonus entry if the layout included a photo of you.

The fifth challenge was to use the sketch I provided.  I chose a SKETCH from Scrap Our Stash by Brenda Ragsdale.

I was thrilled by the turnout and how many Cherries participated in my challenges.

I made it to the final Throwndown challenge at Memorable Seasons with this layou of Emma.

The photo was taken at Stacie and Werner's on Mother's Day a year or so ago.

So since I had good luck with that photo, I used another photo of Emma taken on Mother's Day this year.
