For this one, I used the May Stack-a-holic sketch from DCWV:
I only had one photo and I turned the bulk of the sketch on it's side. But -- it's where I started :-)
I used some old papers -- the background is one page from the Heirloom Stack, then I did some fussy cutting of another page for the "banner" at the top and the photo mat.
The next layout is different for me -- pastel! I do so much with deeper, richer colors; but there were several challenges that all came together in this one:
Still more pictures from Disneyland -- Toon Town this time. I think I'll still add some journaling strips to the left bottom, but not sure. This is from a sketch at Let's Scrap:
Challenge 162 for this week is to use pastels and a stamped image (by birds and their motor home on the left page). Also at Love to Scrap!Challenges you had to choose either pastels or primaries and add your stamped image (always a stamped image). Since I needed an embellie, I turned to buttons, thanks to Child's Play Challenges.
