Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge

Totally Spoiled by Kathy
Posted by PicasaThis is actually a combination of both the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge and the June Stitching Challenge.
I did this layout of my granddaughter at the pumpkin patch - not your regular autumn looking colors, due to Texas' weather. I used a piece of paper from the new DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack. The strips are cut from one sheet of the 12 x 12 paper. I had to split them behind the pictures (Frugal Friday Tip), in order for the strip to fit diagonally on the page. I then cut the snail, and flowers out of one of the leftover strips. I then pen stitched around the top and bottom of the strips and pictures which gave the layout more pizazz!
This was a fun sketch to work with - I plan to use it again. I really like the circles in the sketch - but just couldn't make them work on this page - maybe next time.
Now it's your turn! Take one or both of the challenges - or combine them into one layout. See details for the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge and the June Challenge below.


  1. Love the soft colors of the layout and how you interpreted the sketch!!!

  2. I really love the colors of the strips against the Kraft paper background. I think it makes the layout feel a bit more special. I love the stitching around the Photo mat on the bottom. I love that you used non traditional items to scrap this pumpkin patch visit.

  3. great colors Kathy! You have a cute subject too!!! Way to combine both challenges! Looks great!

  4. Very cute layout, I love the pen stitching!

  5. What a great idea to combine the challenges!!! Very nice lo! What a cutie!
