My Creative Sketches - April Challenge

Hello Friends! It's sketch challenge time again over at My Creative Sketches.
 
Firstly check out the fun sketch we get to play with this month...
http://mycreativesketches.blogspot.ca/2014/04/april-sketch.html
 
And here is my take on the sketch...
 
As I'm sure you noticed I decided to rotate the sketch this month. I left the cluster of layers around the photo in the same spot, but I had my strips of paper go horizontal rather than vertical.
 
 
I loved the banner in the sketch so I added a smaller one on my layout and used it to underline my title.
 
 
On my layout I used the Splendid Sunshine collection from Echo Park. Some tags from Elle's Studio and some flair from Paper Play Studio.
 
I hope you will consider playing along with our challenge this month for a chance to win this amazing prize or to be featured on the MCS blog! For all the details on how to play along check out the My Creative Sketches post here.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

March Sketch Challenge at MCS

hello!  It's time to reveal the March Sketch at My Creative Sketches
 
First, here is my layout. I used the fun, bright and colorful WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY collection from FANCY PANTS DESIGNS.
 
And here is this month's sketch. I'm not sure why, but this one had me stumped for quite some time, but in the end I am happy with how my layout came together.
 
 
Here are a few close ups of the details...
 
 
 
Rather than the little banner below the photo as the sketch suggested, I wrapped twine around the bottom of the photo and put the title there in place of the flags.
 
 
 
I would love to see your interpretation of the sketch!  Come play along at My Creative Sketches for your chance at this fabulous prize!  Click HERE for details and inspiration from the rest of the design team! 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
I love to read your kind comments!

Valentines 2.0

When my kids were done munching down their box of Valentines chocolates from Grandma, I looked at this box and instead of throwing it in the garbage I thought 'I can make something with that!'
 
 
And here is the fun little d├ęcor piece I came up with using the sweet Be Loved collection from Fancy Pants Designs.

 
The top of the box was perfect for a mini shadow box.

 
I started by tracing the bottom of the box onto the back of my piece of 6x6 paper. I traced the bottom even though I was going to decorate the top because I knew that way the paper would fit in perfectly.

 
Then I decorated it with paper and embellishments from the collection. It was fun to use some of the really bulky embellishments since I didn't have to worry about it going in an album.
 
Here are some close-ups of the details...
