Love layout – Pagemaps sketch contest entry

Earlier this month, Becky Fleck posted a wonderful sketch to the PageMaps blog for a contest to win a $20 gift certificate towards any scrapbooking kit from Freehand Scraps. After working several sketches over at Scrapbook Challenges, I finally got to create my layout based on this sketch last night. My poor neglected blog…since SC does not have you post your take on the sketches on your blog and link to it from their site, I have forgotten to post 6 layouts or so this month, so I’ll have to do that later this weekend!

Back to the Pagemaps layout…after months of frequenting the Cosmo Cricket blog, I finally discovered that they have challenges too! I never knew that! Rather than running them on their blog, however, they have chosen to host their challenges on Scrapbook.com. What a fun discovery for me! I was really excited when I read that on their blog and quickly headed over to the forum to see what the current challenge entails. This month’s challenge was quite simple really. Use at least 90% CC product and use either handmade or punched border! Pretty simple right? Lucky for me, the fab Pagemaps sketch easily facilitated the punched border I had in mind. Here’s what I came up with combining the two challenges:

Materials:

Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends Papers
CC Odds and Ends cardstock stickers
CC Odds and Ends 6×6 paper pad
American Crafts blue cardstock
Ranger Liquid Pearls

Adhesives:

Helmar Adhesive Runner
Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Zapdots

Tools:

Epiphany punch (heart and circle)
Making Memories circle punches
Fiskars border/edge punch

The sketch I used for this layout:
