Stuck?! Sketches: September 1st Sketch and Life. Paper. Scrapbook September Colour Challenge

Hello! Hope this first day of the typical work week has been good to you. I am still waiting for some sign that this baby is coming out (I'll be 40 weeks in two days!) so I have been busy scrapping up a storm as of late. As many of you know, I've always loved a good sketch, but I have absolutely fallen in love with colour challenges. And when I can mix the two together, it's truly a little piece of heaven. That's exactly what I've done with the Stuck?! Sketches' September 1st Sketch and the Life. Paper. Scrapbook. September Colour Challenge. Here they are:

And here is what I came up with:

There was a time not so very long ago when I would limit myself to one collection while doing a layout. These colour challenges have really made me think outside the box! On this particular layout, I used American Crafts, Making Memories, Bo Bunny and October Afternoon - and that's just the patterned paper!! I also added some Sizzix and Stampin' Up cardstock, Bella Blvd and October Afternoon alphas, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, DMC floss using a Crafter's Workshop stitching template and embellishments by Stampin' Up, Bottle Cap Inc., Webster's Pages,  as well as a variety of buttons. Woo!Hoo!

Oh! And the girls at Life. Paper. Scrapbook chose my layout as one of their top three layouts for the September colour challenge!!  Woo!Hoo! times two!!

Happy scrapping!
