May Scraptastic Sketch

I am sharing this sketch today because today is Sketchy Thursday on the Scraptastic Blog, so hop over and see the wonderful layouts from our Design Team and try it out yourself for a chance at the monthly prize. All the info is HERE.

For my layout I used the gorgeous May "After the Storm" Kit from Scraptastic Club.  I stitched together the panels in the rectangle and for dimension and interest I have added some hearts punched from the same papers and raised with adhesive foam tape. See close ups on my blog HERE

Christine sent me this adorable version of the sketch. Her kitty Smoky looks so sweet! Visit Christine's blog here.

Nylene sent me her layout using this sketch for an 8.5 x 11" layout and its so cute! I love the colors she used and the way the sketch worked so well even in that size. Visit Nylene's 2Peas gallery HERE

Sketch #105 12x12

Happy National Scrapbook Day! I hope you all have time to do a few layouts today and I thought I would help by sharing a few new Sketches! For my example I have used BasicGrey's ultra cute Bow Ties collection with the coordinating Candy Dots and Bottlecap stickers. For close ups and details visit my blog HERE.

Just look at this awesome layout by Kathy Perry, this layout and the papers she chose seem to just be made for Epcot. I may have to copy this whole page. I love the fresh look and to me, it feels like Epcot. Visit Kathy's gallery here. 

And for something super cute, look at Christine Perez's layout! Is that not the cutest face on that big Caramel kitty! Visit Christine's blog here. 

 Here is a cute monochromatic take on this sketch by Darcy. I love the papers she has chosen, most especially the background. Visit Darcy's blog here.
