Let's Capture Our Memories: Sketch #55

Hi, everyone! So happy to be here with you today to show you some of my latest creations using sketches revealed today over at Let's Capture Our Memories. Here are the superb Becky Fleck sketches you can also find over at PageMaps:

And here is the layout I came up with:

This layout is super special to me as it is the first one I've done with a picture of just my daughter, Éloïse. Even if I have been scrapping with more girly colours over the past year, I still consider scrapping in pink quite new for me. No worries, though! I am thoroughly enjoying it! ;) This photo was taken by a friend of ours, Philippe Dumas, during our annual family portrait session. I actually rotated it once towards the left - I liked it better vertically. Used tons of My Mind's Eye's Collectable-Unforgettable collection on this one, but sprinked it with love using Stampin' Up, Pink Paislee, Basic Grey, Maya Road, American Crafts, Studio Calico, DMC (and yes, I used my Bazzill Basics stitching template!) and Tattered Angels. And of course, most of these products can be purchased for your scrapping pleasure over at LCOM right here! Woo!Hoo!

And for my card:

The sketch instantly made me think of some old Close to my Heart collections I had stashed to make a Father's Day card. I also used some Prima, Maya Road, and Hemptique, as well as the Stampin' Up scallop punch and some DMC floss using my very handy Bazzill Basics stitching template. However, I have no recollection who made that Post Office piece! Mea culpa!

And do you really want to be inspired? Head on over here to today's reveal over at LCOM and see for yourselves how versatile these sketches really are. And if you want to join in on the fun, please feel free to create a layout and/or a card using the sketches above and link them up to today's LCOM reveal. A Scrapbook & Cards Today's CarpMaps 3 is up for the taking for all projects linked up to the January reveals. YAHOO!

Happy scrapping!
