Critter Challenge Blog - Challenge #45 - Sketch!!



Welcome to another new term at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. I am honoured to be on thes team yet again. I absolutely love it. It keeps me motivated and often gets me out of a continuous rut that I fall into where all of my pages look the same.

This week's sketch challenge was created by our very own design team member Colleen.

This week we ask you to create a card or scrapbook page using the sketch below. You can flip it every which way......if you want to, but we do need to see the basic design of the sketch.

Now, onto my creation. My boys and I are creating an 8x8 album for a special someone so I thought this sketch really worked well for an 8x8 page.

I stayed pretty true to the sketch - except for the ribbon and bow, because it was a Nerf Gun page I thought the bow was a little much so i chose just simple ric rac. I used my most favourite punch, the Jolee star punch. I also used my Cricut to cut the photo into a circle (first time for me) as well as the circle mat and the ovals.


I loved how quick and easy this was for me - less than an hour from start to finish! Here is the sketch for this week.. make sure you enter your creation at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog!



Hope you play along with us this week, because we have a fantastic sponsor! Make sure you check out...
