With all the wedding planning, family activities, birthdays and holidays, my regular scrapbooking time has been limited the past few weeks. This weekend, I decided to take a break and do some scrapping "just for fun". It's been productive so far!
Scraptastic Kit Club has a Thursday challenge on the club's blog each week, with a prize drawing for a $20 gift card at the end of each month,. In my last post, I showed my creations for two of the April challenges. Here is the one I made for the sketch challenge (featuring a sketch by design team member Susan Stringfellow). I used the April "I Lived" kit and add-on:
The fourth challenge this month from Scraptastic was to make a 30-minute layout. I used my 30 minutes to make a smaller, streamlined version of the above layout. It's another in my series of 5 x 7 layouts that will be framed and displayed on the tables at my son's wedding reception. I also used the April 15 sketch from the STUCK?! sketches blog for this one:
(My scanner mysteriously and repeatedly refused to capture the red border on the right side of the layout.)
In addition to sketches and challenges, I also love kit clubs. I've been a member of the Citrus Twist Kit Club almost from its beginning three years ago, and the kits never cease to amaze me for their beauty and versatility. CT recently started a "3 to Inspire" weekly challenge on the club's blog. The April 18 challenge called for a black and white photo, patterned paper and a brush script. This is what I came up with, using a PageMaps sketch and the April CT kit, paper and sprinkles add ons. Yes, it's another wedding table layout:
This is Sunday morning, and I have the whole day and evening ahead of me; hoping to get another layout or two done today. Thanks for stopping by -- have a great day!
