Let's Capture Our Memories: Sketch #59

Hello, again, everyone! WOW! It's been a busy week!! Between school closures, vaccinations, and Éloïse's four-month checkup, it's a miracle that I got the chance to sit down and scrap. But, scrap I did on Thursday! I thought I would prepare a little somethin' somethin' with this week's sketches over at Let's Capture Our Memories (one of the perks of coordinating the blog is that I get to see the sketches ahead of time! YAY for me!). This week, the design team got to play with some Becky Fleck/PageMaps sketches. Here they are:

I just love that patchwork behind the spot in the layout sketch! I couldn't wait to sit down and have a stab at it!! Here is what I came up with:

This is a photo of my niece, Lilianne, taken last Summer in Cape Breton while we were home for a long weekend. We don't spend nearly as much time as we would like to over there and I try to take as many photographs I can to hold me through our next visit. It's actually become kind of a tradition with Lilianne to take some photos before we leave. I've been doing this since 2008 and love to see how she's grown up throughout the years. She is so amazing! A wonderful niece and cousin!! I love her to bits!!!

On this layout, I mostly used pieces from Basic Grey's Knee Highs and Bow Ties collections. The patterned papers of these collections are so happy-looking. It's like they celebrate all the great things about being a kid. I also dashed some Maya Road, Prima, Tattered Angels, and DMC floss using my Crafter's Workshop stitching template. And of course, we have a Heidi Swapp cuttable file I did on there, using my Silhouette Cameo and some Stampin' Up cardstock.

And that card sketch? SO user-friendly and totally versatile for any occasion! Here is my take on it:

Louis-Olivier has been invited to a few birthday parties lately, and I just love using the Close to My Heart Superhero collection to make birthday cards for boys. It's just so perfect! Here you see pieces of that collection with some Stampin' Up cardstock, stamp, and die-cut, Studio Calico wood veneer stars, an ACCO paperclip along with some DMC floss using my Bazzill Basics stitching template.

And there you have it! Another set of creations using LCOM's awesome sketches as inspiration!! If you want to see what the design team did with them, hop on over to today's reveal and see how great their designs are. If you feel your scrappy mojo a comin' with these sketches, by all means, create something and link it/them to today's post over at LCOM. You'll be entered to win a beautiful assortment of Bo Bunny embellisments from its Love Letters collection.

Happy scrapping!
