Another one for July..and last May

A Sketch Challenge at Scrappin Patch for July using these colours with this sketch. The weirdest thing is that we also used this sketch at The Crop Room for National Scrapbooking Day AND I used the same colour story.

Challenges for the end of July

I didn't complete as many challenges as I'd hoped for this month but I'm happy with what I did get finished. Girls n Berrys is for NZ Paper Chase. Thanku Sonya for posting that layouts were urgently needed 'cos I liked that I had to use my brain with this sketch.  Haha. Where I've got my 'ladder' - in the sketch it was a photo strip but I didn't want to use mine with these photo's so I had to use the old brain to come up with something else. Made from the negatives of chipboard shapes and painted. Each boysenberry is made from two wee cloud punches overlapped just a little, Dimensional Magic, beads and a tiny sprinkling of Diamond Dust - any excuse to use that stuff :D

Hey Jenny E. my most regular visitor...what do you think about the size of this layout? Is it better than the smaller size I normally post - yep even with my blog list up the side, lol... or should I stick with the usual?

I'm still here....

I made this recently for a challenge on Scrappn' Patch. The layout needed to have a royalty theme, shabby chic and include a crown somewhere.  All credit for the ribbon and how I used it goes to Denise who I met during a class at Art of Craft last month.
