Apr 2015 Sketchy Challenge

Welcome to another Sketchy Challenge - this time it's April and we are (hopefully) well on our way into Spring!

You can also see my sketch in the CS Sketchy Gallery here.


I am hoping to carve out some creative time this weekend so will share my project later.

Hopefully you find some time this month to play along!  Again, please head over to the Sketchy gallery and get inspired to create your own layout!  You can use the sketch as is or as a springboard for your project - the choice is yours!

{RAK ALERT!}
If you play along with the sketch this month, upload your layout in the gallery into the Apr 2015 Sketch section HERE, and then in your comment below, add a link to that layout, by 11:59 pm on April 30th, 2015.  On or around May 1st, 2015, I will randomly draw a winner from the comments here of those who participated, for a prize!

**PLEASE NOTE:  In order to qualify for a chance to be published in an upcoming issue, your layout must be posted in the online gallery by Apr 30th, 2015.  To qualify to win MY prize, you must add a link to your layout BELOW, using the inlinkz tool, by Apr 30th, 2015!

Feb Sketch reveal

Today I share my take on the February 2015 sketch on the CS blog:


Supplies used (I dug deep into the stash for this layout!): Bazzill Basics Paper cardstock; Fancy Pants, My Mind's Eye and Making Memories patterned paper; Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine; Sue Sykes cut file (circles); Sophie Gallo cut file (Mr. & Mrs.); Adobe Gothic Std font ("THE NEWLY"); Scrapbooks Adhesives by 3L foam squares; Sakura Micron pen.

I love this cut file from Sophie Gallo - it's so lovely!  And it cut quite nicely too, even though I resized mine to about 3.5" square.  The remainder of the title ("THE NEWLY") was so tiny and hard to glue down, but I love the end result:


And because I love you so, I've uploaded a free cut file of the overlapped circles - you can find it on my Paper Cuts page here (scroll down to the Other Personal Designs section)

Check out more info and upload your project on the original sketch challenge post HERE for a chance to win a randomly drawn prize!

Seven Sunday Blessings | Feb 1


This week, I am thankful for:

1.  Wonderful friends like the Roberts.  I'm so thankful that Connor and Bailey have remained friends since Gr. 6 and have brought our families together.

2.  Water.  I'm not only thankful for its' wonderful effects on our health, but that we are so blessed to have access to clean drinking water, as so many have not.

3.  SuperBowl.  Football has taken over our lives in the last few years, replacing swimming.  I don't usually care for televised sports but football is one game I can understand and actually enjoy!

4.  Grande skinny soy extra-hot peppermint mocha.  Even though it's $1.00 for each word in the title… :(

5.  OverDrive.  I now can just download books right from our local library to my iPad.  Sweet!

6.  Homemade biscuits.  Especially when they are still warm from the oven.  Yum.

7. Weekends.  'Nuff said.

What are you thankful for this week?

Cheers,





P/S:  Sketchy challenge to be posted shortly!
