Sketch Time!

Hey there, 
Just popping by to share some layouts I created this month! 
The first is for Scrapfriends Sketch Challenge! If you've seen the sketch, you'd see I've rotated it! I initially had it around the right way but experimented and found this looked best!

 Next is a challenge for Stuck!? using the August 1st Sketch! The additional criteria, because it's their birthday month, was to create a birthday themed layout. I chose to use photo's from Zara's 1st B'day which was at the end of July. Amanda puts a lot of effort into her girls parties and does an amazing job, so of course I always take plenty of photos of the pretty party food and gorgeous decor. The theme for Zara's party was a Teddy's Bears Picnic, which is ironic because she cries at the sight of them (apparently).
 I even managed to include some memorabilia, a party straw.

Only one week of Winter left! Yay! Hope you had a great month!
Thanks for stopping by!

SUYS August Challenge

Hi everyone,
Can you believe it's August already? Well, it is, and with a new month comes a new challenge. Yay! Over at SUYS this month we are collaborating with Sketches With A Twist, meaning this months challenge is a sketch challenge.                                                     

And here's my sample...

This layout was so easy to put together. I have used papers from Amy Tan's Yes, Please collection as the colours compliment those in the photo so well. I have also used die-cuts from Amy Tan and butterflies from Studio Calico. My handmade embellishment, the blue spiral flower, was created by me.
I love the bright blue hues in the photo's which were taken on our recent holiday to Broome. We were lucky enough to take a sea plane out to the Horizontal Falls giving me the opportunity to capture these images.

Make sure you head over to both Show Us Your Stuff and Sketches With A Twist to have a look at the other DT sample and check the terms and conditions for this challenge (as far as I know you can enter at both sites as long as you have met the criteria for both challenges).

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy scrapping,
Sophie xx
