Playtime!

Good morning everyone! Today I have the newest sketch from Sketches in Thyme to share with you, designed by Brenshevia.

How fun is this sketch? So many possibilities!

And here is my take on it:

Pics are of Penny and Jackson playing together back in October.

My products are:
background paper, banner die cut: Doodlebug
phrases, blue pattern paper, green pattern paper: PhotoPlay
enamel dots: Freckled Fawn, Doodlebug
washi tape: Queen & Co
“beware” sticker, “play” sticker: 7 Paper
veneer paw prints: KaiserCraft
gelatos: Faber-Castell
alphas: Remarks
die cut collar: Bo Bunny

I chose this color scheme to go with ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge. Barb gave us a list of logos to choose from, to be inspired by and I chose the SPRITE logo (blue, green, yellow, grey/silver and white).

It was meant to be

Good morning everyone! I’m up on the Sketches in Thyme blog today, sharing with you Sketch #284, designed by the very talented Shawn Lahr:

Check out all those fun circles! And here is my take on it:

When I first saw this sketch, I knew EXACTLY which photo I was going to use. This is the first photo I took of sweet Jasmine and Shelby when we were “getting to know them” at the shelter. I just love how little Jasmine is looking at the camera, while little Shelby is chewing on her leash.

So I used my circle cutter to cut the photo into a circle and from there, I was torn by which products. However, once I chose doilies to use as my photo mat (red is Doodlebug; white is Bo Bunny), I went straight for the Doodlebug “Puppy Love”.

I chose the title because at first, both of these little girls had pending adoptions. So while we waited to see if we were going to adopt these two cutie pies, we were already falling in love. Luckily, they both fell thru and they were OURS! ❀ ❀ It was MEANT to be! ❀ ❀

I chose to write my journaling on the 2 doily halves on opposite sides of my layout. The little sprinkles are a mix of enamel dots/shapes, paw print/dog bone stickers – all from Doodlebug.

Make sure you head over to Sketches in Thyme’s blog and check out this awesome sketch. Hope you can play along this month!

Summertime

Good morning everyone! Today I’m up on the Sketches in Thyme blog today. The sketch this week is designed by Sara M.

And this is my take on it:

Really doesn’t look like the sketch at all, but loved the 2 photos at the bottom left and instead of bling/flowers, I fussy cut a bunch of stuff out and used enamel dots. Simple StoriesΒ  “Summer Vibes” papers and enamel dots; washi tape by “Recollections”.

Hop on over to the Sketches in Thyme blog to check out the DT’s work this month. Hope you can play along.

I used all Doodlebug “Puppy Love” papers and embellies and washi tape. The pictures are of my hubby trying to get his mother’s dog Peanut to sit for treats. This was a few years back – June 2012.

Little Gamer

And here is my take on it:

little-gamer

Pictures are of li’l Jackson with my husband. When Jackson was little (like 3 months old little), he would hang out and literaly lie right on top of Rob’s hand while he was playing video games. LOL. What a silly kitty!

Other than the Kraft cardstock, all other products are Echo Park “That’s my boy!” collection. I felt it was PURRFECT for these adorable pics!

I LOVE the placeholder for a larger photo and all those sprinkles! And here is my take on it:

we-are-ready-to-create

The photo is of my scrap room, the morning after the first day of scrapping all night with my girlfriends. The large glittered title is from Pebbles, and it was one of my items from December that I never got to use from my Use It or Lose It challenge. Here’s a close up of that gorgoeus glittered title:

The papers are from The Paper Studio “Wild @ Heart” and the enamel dots are from various companies – Doodlebug, Freckled Fawn and Echo Park. The little black doily is also from Doodlebug and the pink alphas are from Basic Grey “Highline” collection. The washi tape is by Love My Tapes and the black heart paper clip and pink arrow paper clip are both Freckled Fawn.

Good Dog – Sketches in Thyme Sketch #228

Good morning everyone! I’m up on the Sketches in Thyme blog, showcasing a wonderful sketch by Cherie Averill:

team-2

And here is my take on it:

good-dog

I opted to swap out one of the photo placeholders for a PL card, minimizing the banner, shifting the 2 embellishment spots and removing the title. My journaling is at the bottom, using the spot up at the top for the super cute words/phrases/quote.

Most of it is Bella Blvd “Rover” collection, but the PL card is from Simple Stories and the ribbon is from TPC Studio. The ribbon is from my November Use It or Lose It post, along with the “foundation” for this layout. I was going to use a solid white cardstock, but when I was getting the ribbon, I saw that one of those “Sultry” papers from Basic Grey – I had SIX of them! SIX! What am I going to do with SIX pink pattern papers? And this is a super duper old collection where everything was NOT double-sided. So I just flipped it over to use as my “base”. It worked out!
