Two Challenges in One

I'm finally back with a layout I created for an online crop at Two Scrapbook Friends using a Let's Get Sketchy sketch!

I love this picture of my nephew Caleb and I love how this layout turned out.  I used some Mister Huey mist to add the white paint splatters to the background paper.  I LOVE this background paper from MME.  the rest of the papers are from Echo Park "Note to Self".

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!

Let's Get Sketchy - Challenge 6

I've been following this site since it began but haven't had time to play along.  I've FINALLY had the time to play along with Let's Get Sketchy .    I loved the sketch this week - great job Laura!

Here's my take:

I stuck pretty close to the sketch which is how I typically roll ;)  I did somehow "lose" the large circle!?!?
Here's the sketch:

I'm off to Halifax for the weekend.

See you next week!

Thanks for peeking,

Kelly :)

Paper Mixing Bowl Challenge #2

Hi! I'm back with our second challenge for the Paper Mixing Bowl. This challenge this month is Hot Cross Buns so the colour white should feature prominently. Here is the challenge:
And here is what I came up with:
I used a white background and added touches of black and red (I LOVE this colour combo!). I scrapped another wedding photo as we were to scrap a new beginning or adventure. My journalling is on a circle which meets another requirement - journalling on a shape. I used all of the elements - chipboard (the heart, covered in paper and the little hearts coloured with my copics), stitching (faux stitching on the cirle journal and on the red border punch at the bottom), corner/edge punch (on the black and white mat and on the red punched piece), black and white doilies, stickles (on the large chipboard heart)and oval elements (kiss is on a double oval). It's surprising all of the elements I used on a layout with a fair amount of white space. We hope you will be inspired to play along with us this month. Watch for another guest designer soon too! Thanks for peekin'! Kelly :) RECIPE: Paper - white background paper from my stash, Bazill "Red High Heels" and GCD Studios "Simpicite" (black and white damask; Bo Bunny "Sweetie Pie Sigh" covering chipboard heart Embellies - white crochet doily - Kaisercraft; Prima black flower;Kaisercraft blossoms red resin flower; Recollections floral embellishments white resin flower; "Kiss" oval sticker from my stash; chipboard hearts from my stash Tools - Martha Stewart "Swirly lace" punch around the page; Dienamics doily diecut; We R Memory Keepers Sew Stamper; Stardust stickles, Copics R35 "Lipstick Red" and Black Soot distress ink.
