DT call for Sketches in Thyme and here is the information

Sketches in Thyme is having a call and I thought I would share this with everyone.  I also did a layout based on the sketch.  It is of my son Kenny on his 25th Birthday in Catalina Ziplining.  I used Jillibean Soup's Apple Cheddar Soup Collection., including their tags and letters.  This is a fun manly layout.

Brandi in her Tutu using Sketches in Thyme #57

 I was inspired last weekend by this sketch at Sketches in Thyme:

I knew I had taken some pictures of Brandi in her Halloween Tutu, but she was NOT liking it at all.  she just wanted to play with the range bear that squeaked.  so I had to make these pictures really fast and here is what I got.

I used Authentique's Halloween collection with orange pearls, fuzzy cut the diamonds and used Creative Imaginations Sparkly alphabet letters.

October's Card for My Sketch World

Hi everyone in Blog Land,
I created a card using a sketch from My Sketch World and it was totally out of my box, but I jumped in and took the challenge and made it into a Halloween card and I think it might be my favorite one.

Here is the sketch that Lucy did:

Remember the challenge is circles and the card, but this is what I came up with.

I added a different shape that I cut from my Stampin'Up die, orange and black construction paper, prima flowers, glittered pumpkin from stash, elastic ruffled white ribbon and I made the circle using Doodlebug Halloween Twine.  The card was a vintage Halloween Clip Art.

My GDT challenge at Citrus Tree Studio using the kit with American Crafts paper

Today is the 10th and I am so excited that I get to issue a challenge on Citrus Tree Studio today.  I hope you come play since we always have a change to win a prize for the challenges you do.

My challenge deals with COLORS.
I did not want to make it the Halloween colors unless you wanted to, so I came up with I want you to use BLACK & WHITE with a splash of any color (just one) that you would like.  So you can use Orange or any other colors you want.
In my example I used Black, White, with a splash of Goldish Yellow. 
Here is my example:

I used the pictures from Kenny & Christine going to Canada on the Ferry.  I used the papers from the kit that is sold at Citrus Tree Studio, it was so great to work with and has a lot of paper to work with along with great embellishments.  I did use a strip of black paper from my stash and some letters from  Creative Imaginations.

Hope to see you come play at Citrus.

Sassy Lil Sketches, last post since they are closing (insert sad face here)

This post is my last Sassy Lil Sketches and I am very sad over this.  I understand why Sassy is closing, but I can still be sad.
So here is the sketch that I had to work with:

and this is what I came up with for this sketch.

Hoping you can come over and play for the last time.  There are some great prizes to win and you have until October 23rd.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Guess what? I am the Guest DT at Citrus Tree Studio for October.

 I want to share with you that I was selected to be the Guest DT At Citrus Tree Studio.  Cindy sent me a kit called, Hayrides and Halloween.  It is a fantastic kit that has 2 sheets of each paper by American Crafts along with some other goodies in the kit.  I loved working with it and it did challenge me to be creative outside of my box.  As you can see I made layouts and cards.  I will be issuing a challenge on the 10th and I would love for you to come play.
Here is what I created:

This is my favorite layout that I created.  All the supplies except the scallops were sprayed with Tattered Angels Buttercup.

I did one traditional Halloween layout of Brandi in her Tutu and I added the word Halloween in orange bling from my stash.  Here is a close up of the title. 
Next i made some Halloween cards using the kit only.

Hope you enjoy what I did with this kit.  Come on over and try the challenges or better yet buy the kit and make some Halloween items.


One of the last few sketches from Sassy Lil Sketches

The month is moving on and Sassy Lil Sketches will be closing so for the send off they are posting layouts and cards from October 2 through October 9th and giving you time to do the sketches to win some prizes.  The drawing will be on October 23rd.  I am really sad that Cherie and Katie are closing the site, but I understand life goes on.
With that being said you can still buy the EBook and still have some sketches on hand to do.

Here is the sketch:

and here is my take on it.

I hope you enjoy this sketch and come play along.  My last sketch will be posted on October 9th.
