All Star Player w/ MS&M

Today is sketchy Friday!!
I am a HUGE sketch fan. They make the scrapping process so fun and easy. 
Today I'm using this sketch from My Scraps & More Sketches:

Here is my take on this fun sketch:

I can't tell you how much fun it is to watch this girl play!
Over the years she has evolved it to one heck of a good player. She really loves the game and has so much fun on the court. Her happiness makes me smile.

 As you can see I rearranged the sketch a bit to go with my photos, which then changed where I put the title. But you can definitely see the sketch still.

I splashed a bit of blue and yellow dylusions on my white background to get started. Then used Moxxie's Volleyball line and black alphas.

I finished up with a blue and yellow hand drawn marker border. It just didn't feel finished w/o it.
You can see what the rest of the dt did with this sketch on the MS&M blog here.

Leaf Pile w/ Kreaxions

Today is the Just Imagine/Kreaxions design team monthly reveal with the theme of Back to School or Fall.
I chose to go with Fall for my layout:

I started with a dark brown base and added this lovely Fall orange border paper from Moxxie's new Fall Harvest line and punched it with punch #307. I love the way the dark brown comes through the punched design.

In the photo above you can see how lovely the colors are together. I also used a strip of green punched border to go under my photos.

Here's a few more closeups of my layout.

You can see what the rest of the Kreaxions team did with their punches on the Just Imagine/Kreaxions blog.

Fall w/ My Scraps & More Sketches

 Hello! Today is sketchy Friday with this fab sketch from My Scraps & More Sketches:

And here is my take on it:

I can't think of anything more entertaining to do with leaves than watch your kids pile them up and jump in them. They were having so much fun this day!

I stuck fairly close to the sketch on this layout.

Since there wasn't any suggested areas for embellishment I just added them wherever I felt like it.

I had these cute chipboard letters that I hadn't used at all so I put them to work here.

As you can see I made my grids larger than on the sketch and instead of adding patterned paper here, I went with a cluster of embellishments. I think it was the perfect touch for this layout.

Discover layout w/ MS&M and LMT

 Hey! It's sketchy Friday!!!
Today's sketch from My Scraps & More is awesome!
And it was totally screaming for Love My Tapes, so I put them both to work.

 And my layout:

I pulled out a white piece of cardstock, grabbed my tapes and got busy.

I followed the sketch with the Brick Tape, but I used 2 layers side by side to make it wider. Then I added the Colorful Bold Dots tape. After getting those on I decided to go off the sketch a bit and added my third strip out on it's own.

I took the Sky or Clouds w/ Love tape and laid it out on my cutting mat. Then I used a ruler and my cutting knife to slice it the long way. I took the thin strips and added them in each square of my layout. I did beveled corners because I like the way they look. 

I added faux stitching along the side of the Clouds tape to keep the fun look it gave the sketch.

To finish up, add some fun embellishments, a bit of blue splatters, enamel dots and cute stickers.
You can check out what the rest of the dt did with this sketch on the My Scraps & More sketch blog and then join in the fun for your chance at the awesome prize!

Snapshots w/ Kreaxions

Today is the Design Team August Reveal for Kreaxions!
The theme we are following this month is bright, summer or vacation.
I managed to get a little of all three in mine.

This is my youngest daughter at the beach. We went camping and got a day at the beach too, it was so much fun!

Use your circle cutter to make a 5 inch half circle. Then I used the B insert for punch #905 to create the background for my title.

One of my favorite ways to make my photos really "pop" is to use punches on them. Here I used the same punch (#905) in the corner of my photo. I just turned the whole thing over so I could see exactly where I was punching my photo. 
Here's a couple more close-ups of my project:
