I hope everyone has had a lovely week. It's time again for another Sketch Challenge at Stuck On U Sketches. This sketch will run from Sept 27- Oct 10th. Wow how time flies!! So head on over to SOUS and check out the other amazing creations from the rest of the design team.

And here is my interpretation:

Great Times

This is a picture of my hubby, cousin and fiancĂ© and myself. We were hanging out having a few..few..cold ones. 

I used the KOTM from swirlydoos to create this layout. The colors of both the papers and flowers are super gorgeous! I love fall and all the colors that come with. 
I distressed the paper, misted with a stencil, and colored my chippies with silks acrylic glaze. I also used distress ink for the edges on some parts of the paper. I just love how this layout came out. 

Don't forget to check out the amazing talented group of ladies at Stuck On U Sketches and what they created using the sketch above. 

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Sept 13th Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! Stuck On U Sketches is having another challenge which begins on the 13th of Sept and ends on the 26th of Sept. This sketch was created by one of our former leaders, Sandi Clarkson.
Please stop on by to check out the other wonderful layouts created by my fellow design teammates.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my interpretation:

Titled: Remember

This is a pic of my cousin and his fiancĂ©. He had just gotten down on one knee and proposed. And, of course she said Yes! Love this photo. 
The papers used here are from the past kit at swirlydoos. Bo Bunny..hunny..gorgeous colors of green and pink. 

***I apologize for the lighting, it's been raining in Southwest Texas for the past week straight..believe it or not. So my lighting is needless to say, a little less than stellar. ****

Below are detailed photos. 

I used different chippies from different manufacturers here. Kaiser, Spellbinders and Blue Fern Studios. 
I colored them with Silks Acrylic Glaze. 

Hope you have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!

Round Robin Challenge at Swirlydoos

Hi guys! Just wanted to post a layout I created for the round robin challenge at Swirlydoos.
If you ever get a chance, stop by to this thread and join in on the fun. It's a great way to think out the box, and put your creative skills to work!
Here's the link for the Round Robin Challenge.

I got to start our team rolling so here is the layout I created.

Titled: I had a perfectly delightful evening with you.

Here are some close-ups. 

The papers I used were from the KOTM from swirlydoos

I used lots of different mediums to include, glimmer mist, acrylic paint, modeling paste and ferro special effect paste in green. 

I don't know what's up with me and burlap but I can't help using it on pretty much every single layout! I just love all colors! 

Thanks for looking and have a great week!
