Twice a month, on the 15th and 30th, Sketchabilities releases FANTASTIC sketches! They’re so much fun to work with no matter what your style of scrapping happens to be. At first glance, most have been very mixed media friendly, but there’s tons of fun elements in the sketches to translate according to your personal taste. 😀 Here’s what I came up with for sketch #103 (entries are due by Nov 28th at midnight EST):

You Are My Sunshine – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

***Be sure to read the giveaway info at the end***

Hi, everyone! Another Thursday means I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with another project to share. 😀  This week, I created a layout using TONS of GORGEOUS Creative Embellishments laser cut chipboard pieces. If you didn’t already know, I LOVE their fabulous, high quality products and intricate, fun designs. To create this entire layout, I only used 1 sheet of pp and 2 doilies. Other than the stamping, everything else you see is made by Creative Embellishments! 😀

The pic I selected for my page is of my youngest son when he was a few months old. Any time I would leave the room, he was search for me even to the point of arching his back and doing back bends to look into the next room! It’s hard to tell in the photo, but that’s what he’s doing. A back bend just to see me. 😀 I was also inspired by the Monday mojo sketch over at the Flying Unicorn forum. Here’s what I came up with:
