This layout is another for the Monthly Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch

March MSC ~ Week 2 Sketch
by MelissaW

and here is my layout! I worked hard on those arrows using Colorshine (Primrose), Mister Huey (white), and Sprinklers (Hopscotch) to give them the ombre look! I used the branch die cut (from a previous kit I think) and cut out the banner, backed it with pink CS and used the stamp set from the kit to add the phrase. I also dotted pink Stickles on the branch to tie in the colors.

Time to play with a new Studio Calico kit! I love that they included a small bottle of Mister Huey's in the kit, but the color did not work for this layout so I used my White (also from SC). The only other non-kit items are the wood veneer cameras (also SC) and the enamel dots from a previous kit.

The Cow

I have had this photo for a few years now and struggled with how to tell the story. I was participating in the Monthly Sketch Challenge on and the sketch for the first week was this one:

I flipped the sketch so that my photo was in the correct place, pulled out my scraps from my Feb Studio Calico kit and here you go!

LOAD Days 26-28

I finished! 28 layouts in 28 days!

Day 26 - Smile for the Camera
I still need to add the journaling for this one.. something about how I am usually behind the camera and not in the pictures! I used the MME The Sweetest Thing collection

Day 27 - The Sweetest Thing
I used the off cuts and branding strips from the MME The Sweetest Thing layout, and a sketch from Shimelle. I can honestly say that I killed this collection! I have a brad and a few of the yellow word stickers left!

Day 28 - Time to play
I had a few bits a pieces left from the October Afternoon - Sidewalks collection in my scrap basket, so I pulled them all together for this layout!

And here is a photo of the stack of layouts that I completed in February!

LOAD Days 23-25

More LOAD Catch-Up!

Day 23 - Lauren's Perfect Happy Smile
I had a Mommy - Daughter crafting night with my 6 year old, and she picked out everything for this page (with just a little guidance) and told me where to put everything! We used an Echo Park Summer collection.. I need to look up which one!

Day 24 - Cool chick
I used some more of the MME Sweetest thing collection and some pics from 2004 (need to look up the date still)

Day 25 - I am not a runner
This layout is about a goal that I did not know I had.. and how I achieved it.
