Sketch #34 is up at Sketchabilities!


It's reveal day at
Sketchabilities! We had another gorgeous sketch by Karan Gerber to work with!

Sketch #34:

And here's what I did with it. It's another page for my parents' 50th anniversary album that I'm working on for next summer. This is my mom when she was young. The pink
Life Stories line from My Mind's Eye was perfect for this LO. It was exactly the "mood" I wanted for this heritage page. And the best part is, I also have the blue line of this same collection for my dad's page!

Make sure you go check out all wonderful creations from the rest of the DT
here, and link up your LO for a chance to win a scrapkit worth 35$ from our October sponsor Scrap Shotz! You have until November 10th to complete sketch #33 and #34.
Happy scrapping!

Reveal day at Let's Capture These Sketches!

Hi there!

Today is my first reveal at
Let's Capture These Sketches! We had a wonderful layered sketch by Guylaine Seyer to work with. The challenge was to use ric-rak or zig zag stitching on your page.

And for once, I stuck to the single photo sketch! I'm slowly starting an album for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary next summer. (This is only my 2nd page!) This sketch was perfect for a LO with one focal wedding picture. Here's my version of the sketch. I added journaling to capture the story about their wedding day.

So go check things out at the
blog to see the other DT's beautiful creations! Give the sketch a try before the end of the month and link up your entry for a chance to win a gift certificate from myStampBOX!
Happy scrapping!


It's reveal day at Sketchabilities!

Yep! Today is my first reveal at Sketchabilities! This is the sketch we had to work with, by Karan Gerber. I love multi-pics LO with different sized photos, so this was was perfect! Lots of layers too! So here's sketch #33:

Here's my version. It's the old Roman baths in Bath, England. I used a mix of older papers, which I always get a kick out of! The blue background pp is some old 7 Gypsies, the hand-drawn big scalloped circle is K&C0, and there's a bit of Lush MME (love that flocked paper!!) behind the main photo. I've also used some "Dew Drops" for the circle, which I just recently got for the first time. I'm really liking them! It's hard to tell from the picture unless you click on it, but I used white crackle paint on the chipboard letters then inked them with Tea Dye Distress ink. It's a great effect for that page!

Be sure to go check out what the other DT members have done with the sketch
here! It's sure to inspire you! Give it a try too! Link your LO for a chance to win a prize from our October sponsor, Scrap Shotz! You can get all the details on the blog.

Happy scrapping!


A layout, some sketches and some news!

First up, a LO I did for the "Amazing Scrap Race" going on at "Let's Capture Our Memories". We had to use an old black & white photo, and journal about something we were thankful for. So I finally scrapped some pictures of the first love of my life, our family dog when I was growing up!! I'm so thankful that she came into my life... if for nothing else than to cure me of the extreme dog phobia I had when I was little! (after being bit in the face (nothing physically serious) by my aunt's tiny dog...) She even made me forget my "inner" cat lady for almost two decades... that's how much I loved her! lol!

And here are the latest sketches from
Sassy Lil' Sketches!

This is the October 14th card sketch for the monthly prizes from our two sponsors:

and the second card sketch for our "card crazy" month for a prize from
CupCards{ToGo}! Go check out the beautiful creations from the DT here!

And my news... I made the design team at
Let's Capture These Sketches!!! I'll be having my first reveal later this month. Hope you stop on by!!


New layout, new sketch, new sponsors!

It's a new month at Sassy Lil' Sketches, that means new sketches and new prizes too!

Here's the October 7th sketch by Cherie Averill. It's a great multi-picture sketch! I love those!!

And here's my layout. I did a girly page, all in pinks, pearls, flowers, butterflies, and my favorite part... my grand-mother's vintage paper doilies! This is a companion page to the one I did
here about having "afternoon tea" at Butchart Gardens in Victoria this summer. I was never a "pink" kinda gal, but I'm finding I'm doing more and more pink pages recently! Must be all those gardens I've been visiting! lol!

Check out what the other DT members did
