It's time for a new Challenge Sunday: Sketch It Out at Chic Tags, and there's a great Sketch this week! Make sure you play along with us, for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Chic Tags store. You have two weeks to play along and can leave a link to your layout in the comments section on the Chic Tags Blog on today's post. Also, make sure you stop by the CT Blog to check out some awesome inspiration form the Design Team using this week's Sketch!!
I had a lot of fun with this Sketch, and I worked with the Chic Tags Schoolhouse collection and the October Exclusive Kit. The Fall-ish colors in the Schoolhouse collection were perfect for the theme of my page and I added the Polaroid frame, flair button, This is Autumn tag, and Real Life stamp from the October Kit. And I stepped out of my comfort zone and added a little watercolor to this one. I just diluted some of the Mustard Color Shine with a little bit of water for my watercolor effect. I was happy with the way it turned out and really liked the look of it behind the traced chevron and my title. The hidden journaling talks about how it's impossible to get a perfect photo of the three kids together...someone is usually crying, looking the opposite direction, closing their eyes, talking, fighting...pretty much any and everything other than posing, smiling and looking at the camera all at the same time! :) But that's what makes it real life, and I don't need perfect photos to document our memories!!

And, before I go, I wanted to share that I am Guest Designing today for the Scrap & Music challenge Blog. Ana Castro heads up the Team and invited me to join them for today's Sketch. The Scrap & Music challenges consist of a Sketch and using song lyrics from the selected song as a part of your layout title. Ana sent a great Sketch and the song choice was "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction. You can stop by the Scrap & Music Blog to see my full reveal, along with the layouts created by the Design Team. I will share my layout here on the Blog, later this week, but here are a couple of sneaks:
