Sketchy Challenge | August 2014

It's time for the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge! I've posted the August 2014 sketch in the CS Sketchy Challenge gallery as well as here:

For this sketch, I used another old photo of Aili - that girl made the funniest faces as a child!!  (Remember the old "Stink Eye" photo?!?).

Supplies used:  Bazzill Basics cardstock; Crate Paper patterned paper, title and stickers; Me and My Big Ideas puffy sticker (feather); Close to My Heart ink; Silhouette Cameo and sketch pen; Fineliner Script font; Heidi Swapp distressing tool; Stampin' Up! stitching template and doily; My Mind's Eye journaling card (Remember This); Lawn Fawn, Doodlebug Designs and miscellaneous sequins; Freckled Fawn wood shapes; KaiserCraft pearls; Recollections washi tape; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares.

There was a lot of everything going on here!  I find that I tend to do more fussy cutting when I'm at a crop (this was completed in February at Younique!) because I can concentrate on the socializing more! :)

I used the Silhouette Cameo sketch tools for the journaling - perfect for when you have to fit it into a designated spot!

Some confetti sneeze and clusters at various places and voilĂ !

Hopefully you find some time this month to play along!  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!

If you play along with the sketch this month, upload your layout in the gallery into the August 2014 Sketch section HERE, and then in your comment below, add a link to that layout, by 11:59 pm on August 31, 2014. On or around September 1st, 2014, I will randomly draw a winner from the comments here of those who participated, for a prize!

Stay tuned - I will be announcing our July 2014 Sketchy winner early next week!
