Thinking in Three's!

The  latest challenge on the Scraptastic Club blog is to use embellishments and elements in groups of three. I used the January "Baby It's Cold Outside" kit from Scraptastic with a few extra things from my stash, along with a sketch from Susan Stringfellow, to create this layout:

I used three clouds (cut with my Silhouette Cameo), three wood veneer snowflakes and three teal "pearl" dots. This will also be the example for my upcoming challenge on March 19 at Cookin' Up Creations Scrapbooking Forum. This month we're "MAD ABOUT SKETCHES", and we're thrilled that Susan graciously gave us permission to use 25 of her sketches for our challenges. The cute music flair button is from Joyful Moose Etsy shop, the prize sponsor for March.

Another Scraptastic challenge!

Scraptastic kicked off its March challenges last week with Nathalie's Tic Tac Toe board. I chose the combination of using yellow, two different alphas and wood veneers. I used a sketch by Susan Stringfellow of SketchSavvy and the March Scraptastic "Lost in My Mind" kit. This is my youngest granddaughter scrapbooking; she takes it very seriously!

The buttons, glue die cut rosette and wood veneer bird were from my stash of leftover embellishments from past kits. 

Also completed so far in March:

We're celebrating "MAD ABOUT SKETCHES" all month long at Cookin' Up Creations, with challenges featuring sketches by Susan Stringfellow! I used this fantastic double-page sketch with the February main kit and add-on kit from Citrus Twist Kits to commemorate my oldest graanddaughter's 16th birthday last weekend.

 The beautiful flairs are from the Joyful Moose Studio:

I used a sketch from the Citrus Twist blog and the February main and add-on kits for this layout. Felt almost like a bad grandma for snapping that bottom photo before we helped him out of his "questionable situation"!

This, too, was created using a Citrus Twist sketch and the February kit and add-on. Another grandson, another humorous situation:

I love the look of sunbursts on layouts but always hated the work of cutting them out on my own. I found this one in the Silhouette Studio store; it's actually held together by a center circle (hidden behind my photo). All I had to do was trim a little bit and glue down.  

Thanks for looking -- have a great week!
