Stuck Sketches April 1st Challenge

Hello!  I used another fun sketch from the talented Laura Whitaker along with a free cut file from Paper Issues to create this layout of my daughter and I heading off on our big spring break adventure.  And of course, Amy Tangerine’s On a Whim was the perfect line for a trip to Florida!

Here is the sketch followed by my layout.  Have a good one!


Stuck?! Sketches

I used one of the fun cut files from Paper Issues to make this layout using some new Amy Tangerine goodies.  The restaurant we went to put orchid in the girls bowls so I thought it was fitting.  Here is the sketch I used from Stuck?! Sketches along with my layout.



Sketchy Saturday with Paper Issues

With all the snow, I had a bit of time to do a few layouts.  I used this sketch from Paper Issues to scrap our annual breakfast with Santa.  Santa recognized Lexi from the other times and they were laughing at her father and I taking pictures.


Paper Smooches January Challenge – Four Colors

I have been having fun playing with my new Paper Smooches Dies that I got for Christmas.  Earlier this month I created a card to play along with Paper Issues’ Creative Cards with Corri.  I always love the sketches Corri creates.  I used Corri’s sketch to make this card featuring four colors to play along with Paper Smooches January Challenge.  I used the darker blue, red, yellow, orange and I am sure a few other colors considering the patterned papers I used!  I used Paper Smooches Celebrate Die from their Birthday Words Dies.

Here are the colors for the challenge:
