Today at Sketches in Thyme our Team A Sketch is this beauty!!
And here is may layout...using MME Stella & Rose
So this layout covers 2 challenges for me ..
First) This weeks challenge at MEMORABLE SEASONS is to use "journal spots" (at least 3) on your layout. So, I have lots of these...and it seems that the square ones don't make it onto layouts very often, so what a great challenge to use some...I used 7 of them.. --
Second) at THE PAPER VARIETY their challenge to do a layout "about for for a special man/boy" -- This is my special little guy on a recent drive searching for snow.
I left the loose ends from when I stitched the grid... I thought it looked kinda cool... (maybe not?...lol.!!) -- Joseph told me this layout didn't need a title...so it doesn't have one!!
Also this month at SCRAPBOOKERS ANONYMOUS their challenge is to use the mini pads (at least 3 sheets) on your layout. I had these cool MatStacks from DCWV that Erika just gave me and so I really wanted to use those..(hope that counts....they're 4x6 mats)... Anyway here's a photo of the product...
And I used the graphic one (5 sheets) to make the background of this layout...and also 2 more from the solid pad. A few rub-ons and extra embellies (didn't need much since the paper was so busy)....
