Two Layouts and a Winner!


I have two new layouts to share today that I did for the "Deal or No Deal" contest going on at
WeScrap! Every week we get to pick a suitcase for a unique challenge. For week 1, I had to use 2 cardstocks, 3 papers, ribbon, stamps, journaling spot, ink/pens and nothing else! It was this last part which was hard for me! This is what I came up with, my first experience snorkeling last winter. I stamped the blue ribbon with the fish, as well as all the embellies (I did chalk them for a bit of color...). It's fun to get to use the new "tropical" stamp sets that I bought after our trip to Cuba. (I'm just *slightly* addicted to stamps! lol!)

For the 2nd week, I had to scrap a weakness. Hmmmm... Since I always seem to have a tendency to "see the glass half-empty", I decided to use part of the lyrics of this song ("I can see clearly now the rain is gone...") with this picture of me on the beach, on our last day there. I was truly relaxed! I have a hard time scrapping with vivid colors. Add a white cardstock background, and it's really a challenge for me!

Now, let's see who's the lucky person who'll be getting a free copy of the new
Sassy Lil' Sketches E-book!

My first "switch it up" Saturday!


Today's my first reveal since I've been back with Sassy Lil' Sketches. And this time I'm "switching it up" on Saturdays!

As a reminder, here's this week's sketch.

I had to "stretch" this sketch. The first thing I did was to add photos! I always have so many travel pictures that I rarely do one-photo layouts. So I replaced the landscape photo by a bloc of 4 matted photos instead. I also replaced the bottom left cluster of embellies with 2 more round pictures. I also didn't do the strip journaling. I added a small stamped tag at the top right instead. (Eventually I'll be doing a companion page where the "real" journaling will be.) I added some stamped flowers and rubons in the area where the journaling was supposed to be. I adapted the strip along the bottom edge of the photo with some rik-rak, ribbon and buttons instead. I also started the title on the vertical edge of the photo since it was too long to fit completely on top.

Go check out the
Sassy Lil' Sketches blog to see what Ashley has done with her "switched up" sketch! I love her version!

Join in the fun by September 5th and have a chance to win a prize from one of our sponsors!
