scrapbook challenge 16...

well, this will be my last challenge for my "convention RAK" giveaway. i used another sketch from Studio Calico. go here to see the original post and another inspiration lo. i really like this sketch and it could easliy be turned into 2-3 pictures instead of just the one. but this is the only picture i had of quinn and avery jane for this occasion. this was taken on quinn's first day of pre-k.
supplies: bazzill dot cs, mme be loved dp & heart & scallop border, pti aqua mist buttons, k & co wood like alpha, random alpha, and jenni bowlin journal circle. once again i used my typewriter for the journaling and then just cut it apart. i always sand my photos and i always shred the edges of the cs i use and then i ink everything with antique linen and walnut ink. i use a steak knife to run along the cs to create the "worn" effect.

you have until april 30th at midnight EST, to get all 4 of the sketch challenges done i have given you. i will then pick a name and pick you up something while i am shopping at the CK convention on may 1st. so get busy!

Christmas Card Challenge # 4

Hi, everyone! Well, I had no success making a sketch of my own on the computer, so I went over to Mojo Monday, where I remembered there was a sketch I thought would make a great Christmas Card. And here it is!

Please leave a link to your creation on Mr. Linky below so we can all ooh and ahh over your card. And if you upload to a gallery, please use code ICCAPR10. Thanks for playing!










And here is my take on the sketch. I love this set from Flourishes and thought it would be great for this sketch. CS, DP, and eyelets are all SU retired (Cranberry Crisp and True Thyme if you are interested, two SU is not bringing back). I used Nesties for the circles, and the flowers are Prima. They match the card better IRL.

scrapbook challenge 13...

happy saturday, peeps! this is chris and i am taking over the SB challenges for the month of april. banu has done an excellent job here with this blog, so i sent her on vacation for a couple of weeks. i print out sketches practically everyday and then i put them in a clip on my desk for inspiration. well, i am behind on them so for the next 4 saturdays i will pick one of those sketches for us to do. it you complete all 4 sketches by april 30th. i will put your name into a "hat" and the boys will pick one lucky winner to win a RAK from me that i will personally buy for you at the CK convention where i will be spending WAY TOO much money at on may 1st. and believe me they have some good stuff there!!
so for today i have picked out a sketch from SKETCHY THURSDAY. i love their sketches and use them regularly. they post a new sketch every thursday. so be sure to check them out. this sketch was posted in february and you can find the original post here. plus there are some great samples from their DT there too, just in case you need some inspiration.

for my sketch i chose the photo of brock and faith from their first winter formal dance together. they have since broken up so i didn't score too many "mom points" for scrapping this...but i did it anyway, cuz i'm like that. it's called "secret terrorism" around here...lol and besides it's for my book anyway...but don't tell him, i'm doing one for his too. i'll sneak it in...[insert evil laugh here]
supplies: kraft bazzill, pti red poppy, twine & button, cosmo cricket early bird dp and journal thing-y, random rick rack, title from k & company.
so get to work and link it up here on mr linky. If you are uploading your creation to public galleries, please use the keyword inspiredsketch13. Please leave a direct link to your project with Mr.Linky so that we can check it out.
so have a fabulous saturday! i am off to work in the backyard before mother nature figures out that maine is having a rather early and warm spring...chris
