Good morning everyone! I hope your week is going good, were at the 1/2 way point and I'm ready for the weekend!! Its been rainy and gray out all week and I'm ready for it to be nice out so we can go do some of the fun Christmasy things that are going on around us.
On another note, today over on the Cocoa Daisy blog we have the Sketch challenge and when you join in and participate you have a chance to win some store credit!! And oh man is there some really great stuff in the store! So I hope you get a chance to play along with us!
Here is this months sketch, isn't it great?! I love the circle and the fact that there are multiple photos. For me its more of a challenge with the multiple photos, cause I usually end up using only one picture, but I really liked this sketch and wanted to go for it.
Here's my take on the sketch:
I flipped the sketch to go with what I wanted to do and I think it turned out pretty good. I used one of the exclusive Cocoa Daisy papers and ran it threw my Silhouette. That paper is just so pretty, I loves the fade from bight pink to the yellow-orange color. I layered some paper behind my 3 photos, along with some of the Take me away ephemera pack pieces.
I have an issue using dark card stock most of the time so I wanted to make sure to use it this month, so I ran a piece of it threw my Silhouette and cut this pretty floral wreath thing. lol.
I used some of the pretty metallic gold hearts and decided I wanted a little more of that gold around my layout and the sketch shows little dots here and there, so I punched a few little circles out of one of the hearts and placed them around the layout.
To finish off my layout I grabbed the take me away ephemera pack and did a bit of layering into a cluster and added one of the Cocoa Daisy exclusive die cuts. I stuck pretty close to the sketch and love the different ways that it can be used, I also know that I can use it again.
If you'd like to see some more awesome layouts made with this sketch head over to the Cocoa Daisy blog and see what some of the other design team members created with it! And remember to join in on the fun and get the chance to win some store credit!!
