Sketchabilities Number 67

 It is reveal day again at Sketchabilities and here is my layout:

It wasn't until I broke down the sketch and stretched it out that I could get my layout to "feel" right, it's great that you can use the sketch as a starting point and then adjust it to suit your style and what you like.  Here are some close ups:

And here is the sketch:

March Scrap the Girls...and more Miss Caroline!

It's been a while since I have had a go at Scrap the Girls but this month it is the easy challenge of scrapping a "Celebration"! That leaves the door wide open, so with some left over photos of the cutest little two year old I have joined in for March.

March Crafty Sketches using some gorgeous MME Miss Caroline

I saw this sketch at Crafty Sketches at the start of the month and wasn't too sure if I would do this one this month....but when I had some photos all printed out of Alexa over the years on her birthday I knew it would be perfect!

I just love this range of papers (from the March kit at My Scrapbook Nook - you will be seeing some more of this range shortly!

Some more handmade embellishments

From Scrap Elegance Scrapbook Supplies...this time I received some very "vintagey" style embellishments - perhaps not my usual style but I love the way they look on this layout of Kiara.

Tenisha has loads and loads of different handmade embellishments available at the website here so be sure to check them out!

Once upon a....sketch

It has been a while since I have played along at Once upon a...sketch but I am a sketchy mood at the moment so I gave it a go for the first March challenge.

The challenge is to create a layout based on the sketch - that is "All about me" and what you are good at. This is harder than it should I thought I would ask the girls the question.  It wasn't long before I wish I hadn't!!!

I am very happy with the way this one has turned out - back to simple. Thanks for looking!

Sketchabilities Number 66

Yes we are up to reveal day (well, we were yesterday actually) with it coming up all the faster in the short month of February.
I am really happy with the way this one came out, again I simplified a quite busy sketch down to suit what I like.

Here is the sketch:

And you can see the other DT reveals here.
