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!!
