Let's Scrap Sketches 8-15-15

It's me again!! I don't get to scrapbook near as much as I would like too but I did
manage to get this double page layout done with the 8-15-15 sketch at Let's Scrap Sketches!!
You should check out the blog and play along with us!!! ;0) 

So here is the great sketch by Mich that I played with:

and here is what I did with it:

Raymond and Makayla took Yummy to the ocean for the first time... Fort Bragg is the place to go for our These are a few of the pics that Raym took of there trip and I thought this sketch was just perfect... I even have a bit of hidden journaling behind one of his pics. 

I used an old line of paper I had here from when we had our scrap store and some embelli's that I have had 'forever'.... dusted it with some inks and here it is!!! Great pics of a great trip... ;0)

Thanks for looking

Guest Designer on Sketchy Boards Blog

Hey everyone.... I barely have time to play along with my own challenge blogs but I was recently asked to be Guest Designer for August on Sketchy Boards Challenge Blog by Heidi and how could I say no!! 
So she zapped me the sketch and color inspiration... my first thought when I saw it was... are you kidding me??? Obviously she doesn't 'know' me... lol Purple and white?? Well it could have been worse.. it could have been Pink!! lol So out of my comfort zone I started off with this challenge.. ;0) 

So here is the sketch and the color inspiration I was given:

Ok.. so then I start thinking of what pics I want to play with for this color inspiration.... thinking.. I'm thinking... lol  So I thought of one of the newest members of our family and one that I see alot of pics of on facebook.... so I go and swipe pics that my cousin Jammie took of her little niece Afton. Perfect... now I am inspired to get this going!! I zap the pics off to Walgreens and as soon as my daycare kids are gone I am in the car to pick them up and then my scrapbooking process begins.. ;0) Because, YES sometimes it is a process!! So this is what I came up with for this sketch challenge:

I choose to change the pics from circles on the sketch to 4x4's and one 4x3.. staggering a bit. The background I chose to take my white cardstock and ink it with Tim Holtz distress ink Dusty Concord and splashed with some Glimmer Mist (which I have tons of still!!). I dug thru my scraps and found the papers I wanted to use and pulled out some flowers and finished it off with some Lilac Liquid Pearls in my stash.... I'm happy with the way it turned out... 

I hope you enjoyed checking this out and hopefully you have the time to play along with Heidi's challenge blog Sketchy Boards Challenge Blog
