Looks like I have been really scrappy lately
I loved getting several challenges out of one layout. I started by doing the open challenge at Sketches in Thyme. The challenge was to pick a sketch from anywhere and upload it. When looking thru what the DT picked I just loved all the white space in the sketch that Tiffany used from Once upon a Sketch.
I ended up filling up a lot of the white space compared to the sketch but there is still plenty of white space. I also was able to complete this layout for a challenge at Scrapdango which was to use the colors blue and white and NOT scrap winter photos. Plus I used it for Cindy's challenge at My Sketch World which was to use a photo at least 5 years old, so I picked this photo of my DH at age 4 over 30 years ago.
I used a combination of Bella Blvd papers and embellishments for this layout. I just love how the different collections all coordinate together.
Creative Scrappers #169
This photo was taken AT the dentist office. They take photos of all the kids who have NO cavities. They let me have it at his last appointment when they took a new picture of him when he still had no cavities.
I just loved the smiley robots in this My Mind's Eye Paper Collection, plus the maroon color matched his shirt.
The Scrappiest #131
I think I need to take a closeup of this photo because you can't see the funny expression on his little face, and all his hair sticking up. That's why I created the title because it was definitely more than just a trip down the slide.
I used Little Yellow Bicycle's Twig line for the papers and embellies on this one.
OK, I just had to take a closeup of the pic. At least now you can see his eyes and his hair sticking up, LOL!
I loved the mix of buttons and flags on this sketch so I got to work on this right away.
I also completed this layout for the challenge at Paper Variety which was create a travel or transportation project. This layout was from a Spring Weekend Getaway, this resort in Ohio features a HUGE indoor water park.
I used an older kit from Scrapdango it featured papers from Lily Bee and We R Memory Keepers. I picked the orangy/yellow Thickers for the title because they match the color in the photo on the hotel.
