Yesterday, the Sketch It Out challenge that I host at Club CK went up! I waited to post here, today, since we had our new Workout for ScrapFIT go up on yesterday. I always have fun seeing the different interpretations of how everyone uses the sketch. You are welcome to come play along with us or if you want to save the sketch and use it later on, that is fine too! :)
I will show you my layout first, because I did it beforehand and then created the sketch from the layout.
This was one of those pages, that just worked out exactly the way I wanted it to. I couldn't decide what papers to use at first, since we were at a parade, but then I remembered I had some of the Prairie Hill line from Pink Paislee...one of my favorites from them!! I was actually hoarding that Yellow polka dot paper, because I just couldn't bring myself to use it. But I decided to go all out and use it for the background on this page and it worked just right! And now, I am sure you are ready to see the sketch!! :)
You are welcome to alter the sketch any way you like...add photos, take away a photo, move your title area, or even create a double pager from it! I also like to add in a TWIST each month and the twist for this month is using a Tag or Tags on your layout. You don't have to use the twist, if it doesn't work for you, but it's just a little extra fun for the challenge.
I also decided to invite a Featured Designer every other month and this month, my friend Melissa created a layout based on the sketch and here is her adorable page!!
How cute is her "Mister Baby"??!! Love that sweet photo! And Melissa shows a perfect example of altering the sketch, by removing one photo and making the sketch work for her single pic. I love the way she did the outline of the circle and then added another one in faux stitching, and the punched circles with the pop dots add some great dimension to her page. Melissa shares her amazing work on her Blog, melshappyscrappyplace, so make sure you pop over and check it out!
I would love for you to come play along this month!! If you are already a member at Club CK, just add your layout to the October Sketch It Out post in the Creative Challenges Forum. If you are not a member, you can set up a FREE account and join in all of the fun Club CK has to offer!
