Stuck?! Sketches' October 1st Sketch & ScrapFriends' Yummy Scrap #17: Color Palette Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone! Can you imagine?!? No baby yet!! 40 weeks, 4 days and still counting... So what have I been up to? Scrapping of course!! Thank God for online challenges - they've definitely helped me pass the time since the beginning of my maternity leave.

When Laura Whitaker posted this sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches, I instantly knew I was going to do something with it. Here it is:

One of my favourite things to do with a sketch, is to flip it around to see if it works in any other ways. And of course, this time was no different. I had a few horizontal pics I wanted to scrap that I could choose from so here is how I flipped it:

I also fell in love with SCRAPfriends' Yummy Scrap #17 - Color Palette Challenge:

And voilà! Here is what I created:

I know I've said it before, but I just LOVE how color challenges get me to think outside of single collections like I used to. On this layout, I actually used three different patterned paper manufacturers (Sassafras, Crate Paper and Basic Grey), but actually used paper pieces from four different Basic Grey collections - Kioshi, Hello Luscious, Origins, and Hopscotch. So that's six different paper collections! FUN!! I also added some bits and pieces of Heidi Swapp, Stampin' Up, Tim Holtz, Webster's Pages, Prima, Tattered Angels, Evalicious, and DMC floss using Bazzill Basics stitching templates. Oh! And those yellow circles were embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Oh! And Laura from Stuck?! Sketches was kind enough to feature this layout on their blog!! Exciting! Check it out here.

Happy scrapping!
