"Hello School Bus Girl" LO by DT Cassie

Hello Friends! 

Today we are sharing with you this lovely layout created by our designer Cassie:
Cassie said this about her layout:

"The sketch + challenge this month is such a great sketch to use. I changed up the number of photos and size of them. I loved these four pictures of my silly daughter at the bus stop in the morning, so I just cropped them down to smaller vertical photo and kept the angled placement similar to the sketch. From the list part of the challenge I used: My Mind’s Eye, Metal, Newsprint, Naples Yellow and Olive.
I hope that I have inspired you to try out this great challenge. I can’t wait to see your creation!"

Here's the challenge that inspired Cassie's layouts:

"Adventure" LO by DT Sherri

Hello Scrappers!

Today we have this awesome layout created by designer Sherri! Check it out:
This is what Sherri shares about her layout:
"After searching my "stash" I decided to use the following items from the lists:
List 1 - Metal (BoBunny trinkets and some cool metal stuff I had in my stash FOR-EV-ER!!)
List 2 - Naples Yellow - The cool metal looking flower, and in the BoBunny Zoology Papers, as well as "Mustard Seed" Distress Stain
List 3 - Olive - Olive Cardstock, and some Bling, Distress Stain and in the papers also!

As you can see, these photos are from our trip to San Diego, back in 2011 - YIKES! 5 years ago already!! I think the photos I took of the Lions came out great, and I love the way they work with BoBunny's Zoology Line. I've had this collection in my stash for quite some time! I had fun tearing the edges of some of the papers, and mixing up lots of patterns. Then I added metal elements from my stash for List 1 of the challenge - I think they work perfectly too!"

This is the stash items I used from the lists to complete my challenge:
List #1: Metal and My Mind's Eye (The Flair Button).
List #2: Newsprint (Patterned Paper).
List #3: Ocober Afternoon (Sticker).
I didn't add much embellishments to my page because the background paper looks already busy.

"I just love sketches as a starting point for creating and I stayed as close to the sketch as possible. I used the sketch, which worked perfectly for these two pictures with Minnie, and I chose to use Magenta, Yellow and an overlay for my +3. The colors I used matched with Minnie's dress and the overlay I have had for years was a fun add to a fun memory. I used banners and a couple of circles, the white circle I embossed with a Cuttlebug mini dot folder for a little interest and texture. I've had a blast playing with these challenges and I can't wait to see all your layouts with this fun sketch and your +3!!"

"Reach For The Stars" Layout by DT Zsoka

Hello and thank you for stopping by to check out today's inspiration
created by SOS Designer Zsoka 
inspired by thes
"Hi there, Zsoka here with you today with a book cover inspired layout! Isn't this cover just gorgeous?! I right away was drawn to the big heart! I saw balloons! So I decided to create a big heart shaped balloon, then fussy cut a photo of my son and "hung" him on the rope smile emoticon. I had this background paper from Basic Grey and never knew how to use it...but it was perfect for this LO as it looks like my son is flying over the city. We had to use flowers as well so I decided to create the balloon out of little flowers. I finally used a bit of my enormous stash of tissue papers (left over from my paper pom pom making days ha!). 
I hope I got your mind going and you'll join us for this challenge!" 

And the challenge that inspired Zsoka's layout:

"Love" Layout by DT Marie

Another day of beautiful 
inspiration to share with you.
Today's lovely layout is the creative work of talented
SOS Designer Marie
"Once again this month, our book cover inspiration is absolutely stunning! The colors, the scenery, everything is gorgeous! I love, love it!!!

While I was searching my stash for a landscape picture, I found this tiny little picture of New York I took long time ago but never get the opportunity to scrap. Well, well... that day had finally come! Since my picture is mainly black, I've decided to use the color scheme from the book cover to balance my layout. I used a piece of cheese cloth, flowers, rub-ons, thread and crystals as embellishments."

Here's a look at the challenge that inspired Marie's layout:
