from the {my sketch world} cybercrop

I'm still trying to make time for the challenges from the team at My Sketch World. I did these two yesterday, but I'd love to try each and every one before the deadline! LOL

Can you tell that I was trying to do a more simple style for these? :)

For Gloria's Felt Challenge:

For Vanessa's Odd-Sized Photo Challenge:

The deadline is 6pm EST tonight, I believe. Plenty of time to knock out a dozen or so challenges, right?!

sketches! {by tamara} #84

I loved, loved, LOVED using this week's sketch!
I call this page, "home SWEET home" - even though I didn't specifically include the title, the little elements of it are there if you look ;)

It reminds me of the layout that I did with Ellie and the stitched squares last year, but it has a bit of a different design. Also, that one was very whimsical (and busy!) and a double-pager. This one is very calm and simple. Each person in the Design Team did a very different take on the sketch - each of them very inspirational!

Obviously, I still have my Basic Grey 6x6 pads and my new Stampin' Up! yummy cardstock on my scrap table! LOL I used Basic Grey Mellow and SU! Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze colors. The embellishments are a mixture of old and new - some SU! buttons, clip and ribbon, a Prima brad, a Fiskars tag and epoxy, a K&Co. word, and a Maya Road house.

I fought the urge to distress the heck out of the squares. It would have looked alright, but I really wanted to keep simplicity with this one.

Hope you like it and find some inspiration!
Happy, happy Monday!!
Thank you for visiting :)
