Let's Get Sketchy - Week 3

Good morning!  I hope everyone found some time to scrap this weekend!  Things are starting to warm up here and I've been spending a lot of time in the pool.

Now that the baseball season has slowed down, I'm hoping to find more time to work on my albums.

Before I know it, it's football season and the schedule will be crazy busy again!

Here is a page I did with this weeks sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:

And here is the original sketch:

Have a great week!  STay cool!!

Guest Designing at Let's Get Sketchy!

I am so lucky to be the Guest Designer this month at Let's Get Sketchy!

I've always had fun playing along with their weekly sketch challenges!  And this month is no different...

Here is the sketch for Week 1:

And here is my page:

I love working on zoo pages...finally!  It's even better when the animals are willing subjects and pose nicely for you.   :)
I used a white paint dauber on my background and a few different types of ribbon and trim.  And these letter tiles are so cool!

For Week 2 we have this funs sketch:

And here is my "split picture" page:

The background paper has a bit of a shimmer to it, which I thought was perfect.  I used a distressing tool on the middle piece.  The HUGE flower was from the dollar spot at Michael's.  I bought a few of them because of the fall colors, but it worked out great for these pictures.  I'm on big on cutting my pictures up, but this was great because of the reflection of the sunrise on the water.  It pays off to get up at the crack of dawn...sometimes!

Stop by Let's Get Sketchy and see the amazing works done by the Design Team!
And don't forget to play along!

Have a great weekend!!
