Quick blog share today. This is not the first time I have been late with a Sketchy Challenge, but I always rise to the challenge sooner or later; sometimes I even redeem myself by getting them done “right out of the gate”! This would be the case with June’s sketch; that will be shared on another post!

I love grids. They really are the core design element of most everything. When in doubt…think grid! Sue Sykes May Sketchy Challenge is all about the grid!

I adapted the sketch for my layout to suit the size and number of pictures I used; I really love how it turned out. The Simple Stories “Good Day Sunshine” collection was the perfect product for this light-hearted page.

From the collection I used patterned paper, stickers, chipboard embellishments, clear photo frames and enamel dots. Simple Stories makes it so easy to keep everything co-ordinated!

I also used Core’dinations ColorCore black cardstock

and Canadian Scrapbooker’s Superstock to mat/frame the pictures. Of course Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L keeps evertyhing in place!

Remember our sketches are available 24/7 in the Sketchy Gallery! Play with them and share! We certainly don’t care if you share October’s in June! It’s all about having FUN!

Happy Scrappin

    Couldn’t see the pic here, so checked it out on the Sketchy gallery. Love the bright colors and the fact that you used fewer photos to simplify the design.

  2. Okay, first off – I’m so glad you’re getting bteter! I gotta say – your muddled brain hasn’t affected your crafting.. this is justW-O-W!! I’ve seen a lot of this around blog land and have been super impressed but I’m slightly intimidated by the super fine lines.This has seriously blown me away. Her face, and the details like her eyes and her hair. Seriously. Would you mind if I saved this for future reference.. or simply just to drool over when I’m at a loose end, please? :)I see what you mean about the ink still being visible – but only around the cushions and her socks. Her skin and hair is just flawless!! GOSH DEBBIE!!I’ve heard a lot of people use Memento Angel Pink.Lots of love. xo
