Moments – Layout for My Creative Sketches challenge

Each month, My Creative Sketches has an original sketch to inspire you to create. This month’s sketch by Michelle Fowler has some clean lines and geometric shapes. When I looked at it, everything I came up with was pretty clean and simple even though there’s quite a bit of layering in the design. So, rather than fight it, I went with it! When I think CAS, Teresa Collins is the first brand that comes to mind. Everything she creates is clean, elegant, well coordinated and has a touch of sophistication. Once I selected a fun trio of photos featuring my 3 youngest kids, I used the colors in the photos to ultimately choose TC’s Everyday Moments for this page. Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s the fabulous sketch for May (due June 14):

Materials:

Teresa Collins Everyday Moments papers, brad, diecuts, chipboard, bling and stickers
American Crafts light blue cardstock
Twine from the Twinery
Lindy Stamp Gang flat fabio mist
doily from my stash

Adhesives:

Scotch ATG
Helmar acid free glue

Tools:

Martha Stewart circle cutter
