PROUD - ScrapMuch? + Lasting Memories + Rochelle Spears

Hi there

Inspired by another sketch from
 My little guy (at the age of 5) came home and said
"they gave me this green piece of paper on stage....
in front of the whole school! (2014)
for his school
He had NO IDEA! until we read it together
...Look how proud he is!!

Here are some close ups:
 Fancy Pants alphas - altered with some Glitter and Glam
I embossed half of the letters
 Added a match-y Glam star,
embossed his ribbon, and added a sticker
I tucked a Polaroid frame under,
then did some doodling with a chalk marker.
Added some Bling to my layered stars

Here is Laura's Sketch:

Theme: "Welcome to the Oscars!"
"Glitter and Glam"

2 - Stuck?! Sketches - Feb 15th

Hi there

Found some scrappy time
inspired by the amazing sketch by Laura.
I chose a black background for school photos...but with 
busy paper, it works well 
and matches his shirt.

 Here are some close ups:
 Grade 2 and of course his thumbprint,
messy paint with Time Holtz 
 I tucked my photo under the cut file and
faux stitched using my chalk marker 
Tucked more stars with acrylic paint and 
Tim Holtz Dot Fade Stencil.

Here is Laura's inspiring Sketch:
Stuck?! Sketches Feb-15
Back in October (15th) 
I used Laura's sketch to 
document his proofs
(Left side)
This sketch worked beautifully
to create a double
oh SN@P! 2
I will also submit this for their DT Call
there is still time for you too!
~ wish me luck!

DILL PICKLE - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday - Design Team REVEAL

Hi there!

Today I am sharing my
Sketch-y Friday
This is my youngest nephew, Dylan.
He picked up the nick name Dill Pickle.
In these photos,  he is about the same age 
as my son now
- WOW do they ever resemble each other.

I created using My Mind's Eye collectable collection and stickers.

Here are some close ups:
 Silhouette cut file "D" mixed with Thickers tile letters

 Silhouette cut file Polaroid frame, Laura's DIY enamel dots 
(to match - Glossy Accents and matte nail polish) and wooden buttons altered
(I painted the naval Blue to match but they have photographed darker)
 My Mind's Eye sticker layered

Here is Laura's SKETCH:
ScrapMuch? Feb-19
My take on this FANTASTIC sketch:
I chose an over-sized letter D,
to accommodate my larger photos
and lifted the title to the top of the photo's
(since I was using the "D" in the title)
- it works!

Now it's YOUR turn,
hop over to see Team A's REVEAL,
get inspired and remember to LINK UP 
for your chance to WIN!

Thanks for stopping by
