Open Challenge at Sketches in Thyme

This week, since there is an extra Thursday, we have an open challenge at Sketches in Thyme, which means you can use any sketch for this week's challenge. I chose this fun sketch from Creative Scrappers.

And here is my take on it. Papers are Crate Paper

Memorable Seasons Trendwatch Challenge

Today it's my turn to issue a challenge at Memorable Seasons. There are so many fun trends out there and I use some while others I don't. These three I use all the time:

* this stuff

* Kraft...such a fun color that really mixes things up...really enjoying this, though I resisted for awhile

* Banners...still love using them. I find myself having to tell myself to stop using them or they'd be on every layout.

So your challenge is to create a layout using these 3 trends. If you really hate one I'll even accept a layout with 2 of them incorporated. So come on over and share your work with us! We'd love to have you play along with us.

Oh...and here is my layout using my February DT kit: MME Funday Bright Days sure and check back Friday as we are having a Blog Hop as well as an online crop and we'd love to have you play along.

Sketches in Thyme Take #70

It's double layout week at Sketches in Thyme and I had a great time with this one...very usable and I'm sure I'll be using it again! Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on it. I used paper from My Mind's Eye and photos from our DC vacation.

You have until the end of the month to play along, so hop on over and share your talent with us.

It's that thyme again...time for a new sketch at Sketches in Thyme. Today's sketch is a great one for those single photos you have laying around. Here is today's sketch:

And here is my take on it. This is dd holding my niece at dd's going away party. Thought it was a darling photo! I also combined this sketch with a color challenge at Memorable Seasons.
