Climb Every Mountain – dt layout for SKWAD

This is the dt layout I created for the October Sketch challenge at SKWAD. Around this time last year, Alex was playing soccer and our other kids were playing on the sidelines during his practices and games each weekend. In these pictures, Christian is trying really hard to make his way up a little hill with a bit of an incline. His new shoes and the grass seemed to create a bit of a challenge for him, so it seemed he might as well have been trying to climb a mountain…thus the title for the page. 🙂 I used Webster’s Pages Sunday Picnic papers and a bit of bling and trim from that collection. Here’s what I came up with for the sketch:

Sweet Happy Mischievous Grin’z’ – Layout for STTG #2, Prima BAP and SIWAS

For my dt example for level 2 of the STTG color challenge, I was inspired by a few other challenges that are going on right now. For level 2, you just need to pick 3 out of the 4 colors (lavender, ice blue, cream and gray) and 2 out of the 4 embellishments (pearls, bling, flowers and lace). The Meadow Lark papers by Prima were perfect for what I wanted to create and I saw that they currently have a Meadow Lark facebook challenge and a BAP sketch for March. Since I was already using the Meadow Lark papers, it was only natural that I combine the two with the STTG challenge. I then remembered that the current song for Scrap it with a Song is “Nothing Compares 2 You” by Sinead O’Connor. I used a variation of that by turning “you” into “your” in my subtitle, so now it reads: Nothing compares to your…sweet, happy, mischievous grin’z’ (I ran out of the letter S from the Dusty attic typewiter ABC set, so I just played around w/the titlework). Here’s what I came up with by combining these challenge elements:

Materials:

Prima Meadow Lark pp
Prima Meadow Lark flowers
Prima Meadow Lark metal trinket
Prima Meadow Lark Art Tile
Prima Meadow Lark alphas

Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Let’s Capture These Sketches/The Paper Variety

The Paper Variety’s challenge this week is to create a paper based project inspired by a Christmas song title or lyrics. So I kept that in mind as I created this layout of my youngest son last winter in his first bunting. He hated that thing, but he was sooo cute in it! LOL I remember he kept looking at us accusingly, like he was thinking, “How COULD you”? The song, Baby It’s Cold Outside, kept popping in my head, so I’m hoping it counts though it’s not really a Christmas song. It’s a winter song that’s often played around Christmas?

This is my dt project for this week’s sketch by Charlotte at Let’s Capture These Sketches:

Materials:

Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate pp
Fancy Pants sticker
Brown Bazzill cardstock
ZVA Creative flourishes
Rhinestones from my stash
ZVA Creative flower
Prima flowers
Paper Secrets flowers
Snowflake charm from my stash
Distress Inks

Adhesives:

Helmar gemstone glue
Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Premium Craft Glue
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
