Sketch Contest!!!!


 Hello everyone & Happy Wednesday!!!  Super excited to be here to share this month's sketch challenge - YAY!!!  Here is the sketch for July . . .


Now, if you are not a fan of using small pics, no worries!!!  You are more than welcome to use simply one pic or as I did, pile up a whole bunch :)  The layout I created is full of scrappy goodness from the July Boardwalk kit.  I recently took a bunch of Instagram pics of the kiddos playing in the pool at Grammy's and wanted to document all the fun they had.  None of the pictures were showstoppers, but I just loved how they displayed how much fun they all had that day!!!


I machine stitched the circle border, but made sure to leave some space for those flower elements depicted in the sketch.  I used the gorgeous My Minds Eye rub-ons from the kit to create little clusters of flowers.  I also used my exact knife to cut away part of the "hello there" pennants on the Echo Park journaling card.  This allowed me to tuck my photo underneath them :)


I hope you are inspired to play along with us in the forum for this month's challenge.  You have from now until August 3rd to submit your entries.  Head on over to the thread in the forum HERE & be sure to post your entry once it is completed.  Oh & Noel is giving away a FAB prize!!!  A $10 gift certificate to the store to one randomly drawn participant!!!!  Can't wait to see what you all come up with :)

Love this sketch so much and I am a big fan of letting the photos tell the story which yours do so well here! The pool, the watermelon, the swimsuits, looks like a super fun Summer day!
