Sketch 300 w/ Moxxie

 Hi! I have a Nuts About Sketches layout for you today. But before we get to that, Shawn is posting her 300th sketch today! That is pretty awesome!! And I'm happy to say that I've been with her for a good majority of them.
I'm sad that I will not be a part of this next round of designers, but I will definitely be stalking her blog and gathering up all the awesome sketches! By the way, she is still running her DT call. Check out the details here.

Now for this week's sketch:


This is a fantastic 2page sketch! I really love what my fellow designers have done with it this week. Check theirs out here.
And now for mine:


I did just the left side of the sketch. I do this often with 2 page sketches because I don't always have enough photos for a 2 pager and honestly, I just prefer one page layouts.
  These were the perfect photos and colors for the weather today. It is chilly! These are from last January, it was cold enough that my girls didn't want to go outside but my boys went out for a little while for a bit of sledding. They're hardcore, my boys. lol


I put my new snowflake punch to work here on this fun Moxxie Winterland paper and then added a strip of dark purple to the middle, layered the awesome die-cuts on top and then used the snowflakes here and there.


I don't have a hexagon punch, but I really loved the look of them in the sketch design. Cool thing is that Moxxie has these little snowflake squares in their die-cut sheet. So I popped a bunch of them out and added then in a similar design as what the sketch had. I love the way it turned out. Super fun!
  I finished up by adding a couple cardstock stickers, a bit of stickles and my journaling with a white pen. I also inked every edge I could find with dark purple ink. Love inking!
