Good Morning!

Here's a wonderful layout created by

inspired by this month's
Blend A Sketch Challenge: 

Ashley said this about her layout:
"Hi, it's Ashley here sharing this page about my peonies this year. I chose the patterned paper placement and photo placement from the left sketch. My embellishing copied the right sketch, very simple. I felt this helped keep the focus on the flowers. Thanks for stopping by!"

"Dream Dig" LO by DT Tiffany C.

Happy Wednesday!

For today's inspiration,
DT Member Tiffany Call
created this awesome layout inspired by the
Sept. Blend A Sketch challenge:
Tiffany said this about her layout:
"Hello SOS friends! Tiffany here with my take on the Blended Sketch challenge for September. I chose to use 3 photos and that were in the 1st sketch, and layered them on top of a large square with torn edges, similar to the jumbo bracketed piece in the 2nd sketch. I just love that jumbo scallop element! (using a scrap of red polka dot paper I’ve had in my stash for years). I flipped my title to the top, rather than the bottom on both, and added 3 wooden buttons along with puffy hearts and nests of thread in 3 embellishment clusters. Looking forward to seeing your take on this Blended Sketch challenge."

"Goats" LO by DT Sherri C.

Hello There!

Here's another fabulous layouts from our
DT Member  Sherri Caramico:
Sherri said this about her layout:
"Here is my layout for your inspiration. I used photos from our Disney Wonder Alaska Cruise Excursion while in the Port of Skagway, Alaska. 
For the Challenge - the background is based on the sketch on the left. I replaced the glasses with the fence at the bottom, and spread the journaling lines out above and below the photos, using chipboard words and tiny alpha stickers. From the right sketch, I used a large chipboard shape, similar to the one in the sketch, and covered it with the plaid paper. I also used 2 photos. I like to cluster my embellishments in Three's - so I have 3 groups of 3 buttons for the added challenge.

I hope I’ve inspired you to play along with us this month -now go and get scrappy with it!

Hi friends! I'm happy to share my layout today for the Blend-a-sketch challenge. I took the vertical pattern from the right sketch, and the horizontal pattern from the right. I did a lot of mixed media on the background and some stitching. I also added some wooden flairs which is also required in the challenge. More details at if you're interested. Hope you'll enjoy too!

Happy Friday!
Today's feature is the wonderful creative work of
Designer Lyne Blodgett
inspired by the

"Hey crafty friends! I have to say I am really striking out with these movies. This is another one I had never heard of, and after reading the description not one I'd search out to see. I went with the concept of family and created a grid layout of a recent beach trip we went on with my parents. I also used vellum as a partial layer under each one of my photos.
Can't wait to see how you interpret this challenge."
