Sketch #23 Inspiration and a Reminder!!!

Hello, Happy Saturday!!!
Just sharing a couple of layouts Rochelle and I created inspired by our

First up is Rochelle with a beautiful "girly" layout...
"Love This"
Rochelle shared this about her layout:
"This layout is about my daughter and the love she has for swimming. I used an older Ecko Park paper collection that I hadn't used. The colors were perfect… except the blue is a lot darker. I also flipped the sketch and used 3 photos instead of 2 photos."

And here is my take on this month's sketch challenge:
"Puppy Love"
"I loved working with Lisa's sketch! 
I completed my layout using Simple Stories "Hugs & Kisses" collection, which combined with the sketch was perfect for these photos of my granddaughter and her first puppy, which she absolutely adores."

Here is the sketch, created by our February Guest Sketch Artist
Lisa Hidy
and the color palette that we were required to use:

Tracy shared this about the challenge and her reveal:
"This was such a fun sketch to work with and it has so many possibilities! Besides adding only one photo, I stayed pretty true to it. I chose an older collection by Echo Park called Beautiful Life. The colors are just perfect for the color palette. And, of course, with Valentines Day being upon us I found this to be the perfect photo as well.

This man is the love of my life and he will forever be mine Valentine heart!"

Kate shared this with us about her reveal:
"Took this photo for Aleidas Challenge sometime back in the summer (I can tell by my super tan)-it's important to get IN the pictures so we try and take a picture (or two) once a month -no matter what we look like! Used a lot of Maggie Holmes for the color palette since I am addicted to her collections! Used it all with some Teresa Collins paper against a kraft polka dotted background."

"Seriously {Heart} You" Layout by DT Becky

Hi Everyone!
Today's fabulous Sketch Challenge inspiration was created by talented designer Becky:
Becky shared this with us about her reveal:
'Inspired by this fantastic sketch, Valentine's Day, and a whole lot of pink, I created this layout. I only used one photo instead of two, but otherwise, I stuck to the sketch pretty closely and used all of the palette colors. One of my favorite things about living in Portland, Oregon is our proximitiy to the coast. It's our happy place and we return as often as possible, even if it's cold and rainy. Given that we're in the Pacific Northwest, that's most of the time!'

I hope Becky's beautiful layout inspires you to create a layout based on this month' s sketch and color palette.
You still have a few more days to link up your take on our Stash or Sketch Challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift card from our sponsor:

"Love Potion" Layout by DT Claire

Happy Tuesday Friends!
Our feature today is the creative work of design team member Claire, 
inspired by the 
Claire shared this with us about the challenge and her reveal:
"I love the sketch, love the color palette and I had a great time putting together this layout combining the two. I used lots of bits and pieces from my stash for this layout. I turned the sketch and used four photos instead of two.
The main paper is from Pink Paislee Secret Crush (for the pinks and blacks), to that I added blue and green scraps from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss. I also had the kraft paper in my stash for a bit now and decided it was time to use it. This day was all about laughing and having a good time, so it went perfectly.
The embellishments are from the Secret Crush collection along with bits from my stash. I also used the Maggie Holmes' free Valentine's day print and cut file. 
I can't wait to see your layouts combining the sketch and color challenge. Enjoy!"
