March Sketch Challenge!!!


Alright scrappers - I'm back this week with a new sketch challenge for the month of March!!!  Lots of layering & circles on this single photo design . . .

I love the the soft blues, greens, yellows, & grays in this month's Daffodil Hill kit - but don't be fooled - Noel also worked in some fun & playful brights in there as well!!!  I decided to showcase these on my layout today & show you how they can totally work for a fun summer pic :)

For my title I used a combo of the small Basic Grey letters (love 'em) and those fab striped Thickers.  The little yellow dot on the "o" is actually the tops of one of the brads.  I was messing with them and it popped off the brad - voila, instant enamel dot :)

The Lilybee Design speech bubble patterned paper is perfect to cut out & use as embellishments around a photo.  I added in some brads, pearls, and stickers from the kit to "dress them up" a bit :)

I wanted to use the Elle's Studio "notes from today" card, but when I placed it behind the layered papers it was too high.  To fix that, I simply used my exacto knife to cut around the notes from today & date.  This allowed me to both tuck it behind the patterned papers and overlap them :)
