Hurry! Hop on, Mom – Layout

For this layout I combined the July color challenge (with a twist) on Paper Secrets with a gorgeous sketch#88 by Ness on Let’s Capture These Sketches.

Be sure to stop by these great sites for some fun and inspiring challenges! Let’s Capture These Sketches features a new card and layout sketch each week. Card sketches are usually posted on Fridays and Layout sketches are posted on Saturday. Hope you stop by and play along! Paper Secrets features 4 new monthly challenges which are posted on the 1st of every month and all entries are due by the end of the month. This month, we have a color challenge, a manufacturer challenge, a card sketch and a layout sketch! Each completed project that is posted to the gallery gives you one entry for the monthly prize…a $25 gift certificate to the PS store!

These photos are from when Matthew was 2 and Madison was 3. They were pretending that the Earth was melting and they built a rocket ship to the moon. Surrounded by these toys…their space craft…they urgently yelled for me to hop on before it’s too late! I teasingly told them that there wasn’t any room, so Matthew frantically tried to grab and shift some objects to make room, not realizing that all he was doing was making it more cramped. He soon gave up. If you look closely at their faces, you can tell Madison didn’t find my teasing so amusing especially when Matthew gives up his expansion efforts and I tell them, well, I guess I have to stay here and fry. lol

All Ours – Layout for Paper Secrets and Sketches4All

The first challenge for the SYAO event on Paper Secrets is now closed and participants are now moving onto the 2nd sketch. I’d already used it before for the “1st mohawk” layout of Alex last winter, so I rotated it 90 degrees to give me a fresh perspective. There’s also a list of 10 supply items and you need to select at least 5 of them to include on your layout. I chose dry embossing, misting, 3+ brads, 3+ buttons, ribbon and 3+ photo corners. I combined it with Challenge #4 (Bright Colors) on Sketches4All‘s Spring is in the Air event. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

October Afternoon Schoolhouse 12×12 cardstock paper
OA Schoolhouse alpha stickers
OA Mini Market stickers
OA Schoolhouse diecut stickers
Core’dinations G45 Core Impressions
American Crafts white cardstock
chain links from craft store
Maya Road chandelier beads
