"Scarf Thief" LO by DT Zsoka

Today SOS Designer Zsoka is sharing her incredible take on the 
Zsoka:
"Hello dear friends, Zsoka here with you today with a new layout for the sketch and stash challenge. Boy was this one difficult! I don't even know some of the things in the lists let alone have them in my stash :). So I went with the only things I had: Simple Stories (enamel dots and bradz), twine and blue (ultramarine)! I can't say enough how much I love these challenges because they really force me to look through what I have and use some of it! I can't wait to see what you all find in your stash and what you create with them!
Thanks for stopping by"

"Take Me Out to the Ball Game!" Layout by DT Sherri Caramico

Hello and welcome!
Today we are featuring an incredible layout created by talented SOS Designer Sherri
inspire by the
July Sketch + (3) Challenge:
Sherri:
"Hi everyone! I hope this month's Sketch +3 Challenge, and my layout help to inspire you to play along! I love these Challenges! They really help you to dig into your stash, and sometimes find things you forgot you had!! LOL! 

I used 2 photos from a minor league baseball game my hubby and I attend with a group of friends last year for this layout. We had a super fun time and I am glad I can capture and keep that memory forever with this page!

Here are the items I used from the 3 lists:
List #1: Simple Stories - "Life in Color" Page Elements and Lt Blue Water Color papers, along with Brads and Bits and Pieces from that collection
I also used Bazzill "Phoenix" Cardstock for the "Sangria" item, and Ranger Distress Stain in Candied Apple, and Red jewel brads as well!
List #2: I used TWINE - on the 2 tags
List #3: I used a black Uniball Pen for journaling, along with a Ultramarine colored Glimmer Mist that I sprayed on the base page and some brads as well.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to play along with us this month!"

"The Adventure of Lily" LO by DT Cassie

Today we are showcasing a lovely layout created by DT Cassie
inspired by our

Cassie:
"I knew when I saw this sketch that those two index cards would be perfect to add some project life style cards to my page. I replaced the two small photos with this single 4x6 photo. I also needed to move my title up on the page to make room for all my journaling. There was a story behind this snapshot that I really wanted to record. I then finished up the page with some embellishments. With the long title I thought that a the little banner flags with the same patterned paper would be a nice touch to draw your eyes up and across the page. For the lists I used: Simple Stories, Teresa Collins, Twine and Uniball Pen. I am looking forward to seeing your take on this challenge!"
