Memorable Seasons Last Scrapper Standing Week 4

Yeah!  I made it another round at Memorable Seasons' Last Scrapper Standing, though competition is getting tougher and tougher and I'm not sure how I'll fare this week.  Either way it was a fun challenge!  This week challenge is to fussy cut.  Now I do this all the time, on almost every layout so why did it cause me such stress?!  I even created two layouts hoping that would help, which it didn't...it just confused me more.  But this is the one I decided on.  I fussy cut all the pom poms, the fish and even the waves as well as the chevron arrows. 
The sketch is from My Scraps and More for their month long sketch-a-thon.
Wish me luck!  I know I'm going to need it this week with all the tough competition. Oh, and if you want to see the 2nd layout I created for it, here it is - and don't tell me you think I should have used it instead as it's too late! LOL. Oh..and btw, the sketch is from My Scraps and More.   Thanks for stopping by!

Guest Designer Spotlight

I was so excited when I received a  message asking if I would be a Guest Designer at Colorful Creations!  I got a fun sketch and created a layout for it.  I enjoyed the process,though as you can see, it started to take on a life of it's own.  Here is the sketch I got to work with:
And here is my take on it. 
Be sure and stop by Colorful Creations and check things out.  There are so many fun challenges, including the chance to play along with this sketch challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure and check back in the next few days as I'll have my next layout for Memorable Seasons Last Scrapper Standing as well as a new sketch from Sketches in Thyme on Thursday!  Have a wonderful week!

Memorable Seasons Last Scrapper Standing Week 4

Lucky me I made it again to this week's challenge in Memorable Season's Last Scrapper Standing.  Fingers crossed I can stay in this contest.  I've loved these challenges as they make me stretch myself creatively.  With that said, this week's challenge was to create a layout where Typography is the main focus of your layout.  I've pondered this since Friday and was driving myself crazy so I decided it was time to get started - well that and it's due tomorrow.(LOL).  Here is what I came up with.  Please forgive the awful photograph.  My good camera died so I might need to experiment with better lighting or something.  I learned a good camera and lense should never be taken for granted. 

I've also combined this challenge with a sketch-a-thon at My Scraps and More.  I took this cute sketch and rotated to accomodate my big title.  Be sure and stop by this site as they have a sketch each day for the month of March.  Tell them I sent you.  Thanks for stopping!
