Paper Secrets Sketch & Memorable Seasons Challenge

I love challenges and when I'm in the mood to scrap I'll see what challenges are out on the web.  I came across this fun site called Paper Secrets that had some fun challenges.  I decided to play along with the sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on it:

And here is a card I created for Joni's Appetizer Throwdown Challenge at Memorable Seasons.  Both the layout and card are created from my Crate Paper Pretty Party DT Kit

Be sure and check both challenges out.  They are both due April 30th.

Sketches inThyme Take #75

It's sketch time again! This week at Sketches in Thyme we are using this sketch:
Since my the ancestor in my photo is facing the opposite direction I chose to flip the sketch and use it upside down. That concept is one I learned when I used to decorate homes. I used some old Graphic 45 that I've had for awhile.
Be sure and come on over to play along with us!

Scrappy Time

Well...I haven't post a ton of projects the last little while but I have created them...just not posted them. So I thought I'd share a few of the projects with you.
This is one I created for the Scrapbook Throwdown Contest at Memorable Seasons. Here is the link to this challenge by Raechelle.
I decided to try out of the Little Yellow Bicycle DT call and the following projects are two of the ones I submitted. Unfortunately I didn't make the team but I was proud of what I created.
This is a frame I found that I just fell in love with and knew it was what I wanted to use for the LYB DT call. Isn't if fun?!
This is one based off of a sketch(though I can't remember what site it is). Just a simple one of my son many years ago.
Here is one I created while at my scrappy retreat. I have loved all the fun hexagons I've been seeing and since my friend had a punch I just had to give it a try.
Well...if you're still with me I appreciate you taking the time to see what I've been busy creating. Hopefully I won't wait as long the next time.

Page Maps

I love Page Maps! Becky is so talented and I love the variety her sketches offer. I noticed on her blog that My Scraps & More is sponsoring a sketch contest. So I thought I'd play along. Here is the fun sketch:
And here is my take on this. I also created this using my DT kit this month at Memorable Seasons - Crate Paper Pretty Party. The challenge is part of our Scrapbook Throwdown going on right now. The challenge was to use cardstock for your base, paint or ink, & confetti. Be sure and come check out the last few week's worth of challenges.
