Frown Monster & Whooo?

This week at FROSTED DESIGNS I got to choose the challenge!!!  I chose the challenge of using an OVERSIZE photo (or image for cardmakers) to create your project.  I made this layout using various old & new Jillibean Soup lines.

And at ALPHABET CHALLENGE our challenge is I made this layout of Joseph using a photo taken the "last day he was 6 yrs old"...  I used a sketch from Sketch Savvy for my inspiration.
Oh...just a note..those "canvas" Thickers never seem to stick so I always just take it to my sewing machine and run a stitch across them.

This was for Club CK blog...challenge to use KRAFT -- I used it as my background.  I kept the patterns/colors/embellies to a minimum to highlight the simplicity of the bridge and the concept of the question & answer....

Also, I went back and used an OLD sketch from SKETCH SAVVY (#31) because really? sketches ever go out of style??  I loved that I was able to use the tickets from the game on this layout in a unique way but it documented the date and place.


  1. What a blast of layouts, Joni!
    All of them are fabulous. I loved the huge photo one, your son is such a cutie and all the embellishments and the alpha really looks great on that lo.
    And the kraft is simply stunning! The simplicity is overwhelming.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Gosh, these are all just so great, Joni! I have to say that your photos all make me smile even without the great layouts. My fave is the baseball layout, you are just too creative. I would have never thought to use the tickets that way and they are ideal
