Sleepy Challenge

Yeah! I managed to join in on all eight challenges! Here is the final one: Sleepy! The challenge was to use the word Dream somewhere on your lay-out.

A subject was easily found, since last friday we got the keys to our first home together!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my take:

I used October Afternoon Farm Fresh papers, Tim Holtz tickets, Quickutz Fiesta alpha and some flowers from my stash. The little rub-on letters are by doodlebug.

Happy Challenge

Number seven was a layout sketch again, this time themed Happy! The challenge was to create a LO around the word Happy.

The picture I used is of my grandparents celebrating 45 years of marriage. That counts for a happy occasion, I think!

This was the sketch:

This is my lay-out:

I used Basic Grey Indian Summer papers, Martha Stewart Punch, Storybook alpha by Quickutz, Small Stuff alpha from Sizzix and a Prima flower.

Doc Challenge

Here is number six of the challenges: Doc!

Doc's challenge was a Card challenge, where it had to be a Congratulations, Well done or Get Well Card. I had been wanting to do a one-color-card for a while and I figured this was my chance!

Here is the sketch:

And this is my card:

I imagine I could send it to a marrying couple to wish them a perfect day! I could congratulate them on the inside....hope that makes it count as a congratulations card :).

I used white cardstock, fiskars apron lace punch, some embossing folders and a leaf die from Sizzix. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart Punch. The sentiment is a Whiff of Joy stamp.

Sneezy challenge

Challenge 5 of the Snowwhite series on capture these sketches was all about Sneezy!

The challenge was to create a winter themed LO. I have been scrapping quite a few of these layouts lately...so I decided to do something different. I took two old photos of myself and used them.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my lay-out!

I used Scenic Route papers, Maya Road snowflakes, Quickutz border and Daisy alpha, Spellbinders Nestabilities.

Bashful Challenge

I am still working on the seven dwarfs challenges and here is challenge number four: Bashful! This time the challenge was hidden journaling. Under the photo is a tag with my journaling for this picture.

I used Basic Grey and Making Memories paper, some cardstock, paint, embossing powder, Unity Stamp: Snowflake Serenade, some DMC and a Quickutz exclusives border die. The word 'remember' I bought in my LSS....and I don't have a clue what the brand is.

Dopey Challenge

Challenge number three was all about Dopey! This time there had to be something silly.....I used these pictures me and my friends took in Romania four years ago. We lived there for six months and we needed a photo to make christmas cards to send home. It was a fun fotoshoot, so that's why I used them!

Grumpy Challenge

Challenge number two at the Capture these sketches blog is Grumpy! Of course there was a sketch and we we're challenged to use a black and white picture. Here is my take on it!

Scenic Route Paper, Colorbox ink, prima flowers, DMC thread, eyelet and brads, quickutz storybook alpha, fiskars apron lace punch

Crete album 7

The spread was loosely based on this sketch.

This little ceramic air balloon was our souvenir from Marguerites, a pottery village on Crete.

Snow white challenge

At the Capture these sketches blog they are running a Snow White and the Seven dwarfs competition. This is my take on the Snow White challenge:

The picture isn't very well, because it had to be taken by night with a flash....paper is Basic Grey Indian Summer.

You can read about the Snow White challenge here.

By the way, talking about Capture these sketches: with this layout I became a honorable mention of january. They loved my layout best for that sketch! What a great feeling!!
Here you can see the other favorites!
