Quick share today on the blog! I LOVE working with Sue Sykes’s sketches that she designs for our Sketchy Challenge! Every now and then I come across one that’s difficult to work with,  though sometimes it’s just MY state of mind at the time! That being said, this months sketch was awesome from the moment I laid eyes on it! I knew from the  time it was revealed which pictures I would work with.


I pulled out my Simple Stories DIY collection!  It is colourful and fun; like the pictures I was using! No special techniques here, just some layering of paper and stickers! I did pull out some old chipboard alphas (that fit my space perfectly) and painted them with Viva Decor’s Inka Gold paints. I love the punch of colour and shine it adds to my page!


If you like sketches as much as I do, you’ll LOVE this month’s sketch! Hope you’ll pay along and share your completed layout on our Sketchy Gallery!

    This Jan-Feb I plan to do more Christmas and winter layouts. This design is perfect for that. I also love what you did with your layout. It’s attractive right off the bat! Fun to look at too.

    All the colors work well and your layout is very sweet. Your pictures were especially, most certainly the right choice also. Very nice
