Sketchy Beginnings

Happy Friday! I wanted to share a couple of LO's I did based on sketches. I love to use sketches as a base, my own or someone elses. Actually this first LO, simple as it is, is a combo of a sketch I saw here and 2 challenges. The first challenge is on the BASB site. The challenge there is to use stamps on a page (no pattern paper allowed-cardstock only!) This is how it began and then I saw the sketch and the ideas started flowing. The other challenge you can find here. This challenge is to use those paper punches. Whether it be shapes or borders, and I did a litlle of that too. I even handwrote my title ala Heidi Swapp (Love her!) Though again very simple, this LO took me forever to make:

This sketch challenge was on the Studio Calico blog. I saw lots of cool takes on this sketch. I actually flipped the sketch on its side. I got to use some more of my favorite October Afternoon paper and finally scrapped this photo of Bryant meeting Tim Holtz a little over a year ago:

and....speaking of Studio Calico. This came yesterday. The Peter Piper add on kit. Yes, I said add on. I did not get the main kit this this month, but I could not walk away from this 'boyish kit'. How cool right??!!

So...lots more creations are in store. My new Scarlet Lime kit will be here tomorrow. I can not wait! It is so pretty! Easter in a few days. Lots more photo ops and lots of family time. Should be fun. Enjoy your weekend. Spend some time being creative if you can. :-)
