Gift of Gab – PageMaps sketch challenge entry

PageMaps is well known for their fabulous sketches which are frequently used on challenge sites throughout the web. I recently stopped by to see what they’re all about and found this great sketch posted with a challenge. I’m also entering this layout into Sketches in Thymes’ Open Challenge #4. You can enter any layout you have created that is based on a sketch (up to 3 entries). Here’s what I came up with based on this sketch:

Well, I just received a fabulous package of My Mind’s Eye’s newest release, Stella and Rose, so I decided to create a layout for this sketch using that line (I will be posting a review of Stella and Rose on Monday). Based on the photo I selected, I decided to go with the Hazel range. Here’s what I came up with for the challenge:



My Mind’s Eye Stella and Rose Collection, Hazel papers in “Special”
Bazzill solid colored cardstock
MME Bohemia “Bella” twill ribbon trim
MME Stella and Rose “Special” frame
MME Stella and Rose “special” tag
Making Memories brads

Believe – Sketches in Thyme Challenge Entry

This is Alex Christmas 2008 (can you tell I’m still trying to get caught up on his scrapbook? ha!). The journaling reads “Christmas 2008. You were very into pirates and science that year along with transformers, legos & Indiana Jones.” Since I’m still playing catch-up, you’ll have to put up with at least one more Christmas layout and a couple of Halloween layouts in the next week or so!

This layout was created using a sketch for a challenge on Sketches in Thyme.
