Eager – Layout for Creative Scrappers sketch #191

I loved working with the fun sketch #191 by Nicole Nowosad for Creative Scrappers. For my take on it, I stuck pretty close to the sketch. The journaling reads, “Eager to walk run and always the daredevil. You didn’t just cruise at 6 months, you ran as long as you had something to holdonto…even if it was the back of the couch as you darted across the cushions. 1/04/2011.” Here’s what I came up with:


Basic Grey Green at Heart pp
Basic Grey Green at Heart alphas
Basic Grey Green at Heart sticker
Basic Grey Sugar Rush brads
Basic Grey Bling it on Rub-on
Prima flowers
white pen


Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Premium Craft Glue

The fab sketch #191:

I decided to combine their manufacturer challenge (Basic Grey) with the Scrapbook Challenges sketch #260. Here’s what I came up with:


Basic Grey Oh Baby! Boy papers
BG Wisteria diecut stickers
My Mind’s Eye rhinestones
Distress Ink


Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar Acid Free Glue

Here’s the sketch I used for my layout:
