Get Picky November Sketch Challenge #14

On a roll this month - I have done the Get Picky November Sketch # 14 Challenge. This sketch was actually easier than I thought it was going to be - when I finally found the right papers to use! I have used Echo Park - Happy Days - good to open that collection pack up! I didn't end up cutting my photos into circles - would have lost too much of the reason for the layout. I have to admit I am still bearing scars from all the Creative Memories circle cutting I did in the early days - eeek!

It is good to be making some inroads into the pile of photos sitting on my desk to be scrapped, until I get the next lot printed out ....

Pencil Lines Sketch 258

Wow - my second challenge for the week - I am feeling good about my scrapping for once!

I have taken on Sketch #258 at Pencil Lines - I have changed it a bit but still used the sketch as my inspiration. I am in love with all the October Afternoon lines at the moment. The colours and embellishments are so gorgeous.

Get Picky

I have been looking on the internet for great challenge sites and came across Get Picky.
They have two challenges a month - one a sketch challenge and one an inspiration challenge. All layouts need to have multiple photos - I think this is great motivation to get more than one photo on the page - heaven knows I have enough photos! The first photo is the inspiration photo and then my layout inspired by the picture. You also needed to use some fabric - in mine I have used a lace doiley/s.

I was inspired by the shapes in the quilts as well as the circular "doiley" like shapes on the mat.

Great to get a layout done!
