DT Michelle Mattie
created using
April Blend-A-Sketch Challenge:

Michelle said this about her layout:
"Hey everyone. I’m back with this month’s blend a sketch challenge. I couldn’t wait to scrap these photos of my grandson meeting the Easter Bunny for the first time. For the blend I took the circle elements from the right sketch and added them to the left sketch. It’s so cool to see how each designer is inspired by these challenges and what parts they blend. I also added enamel dots and one flower and the frame has polka dots. Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to see how you are inspired!!"

Hello and Good Morning!

For today's inspiraiton, 
DT Michelle Henderson
 is sharing her wonderful layout inspired by
April Blend-A-Sketch Challenge:

Michelle said this about her layout:
"Hi crafters!
I don't do boy pages that often, but here's one of my great-nephews while out for a nature walk.
From the left sketch I used the flags and the general layout (although it did mutate a bit ðŸ˜†ðŸ˜†ðŸ˜†), and from the second sketch I used the circles and stars in the background. 
I used dotty washi tape, but in case it doesn't count I also used enamel dots as I think I have around a million ðŸ˜‰
I also used the February boy kit from The Paper Teapot for all the great Pinkfresh, Tim Holtz and Cocoa Vanilla awesomeness ðŸ˜
Make sure to have fun with it!

Good Morning!

DT Sherri Caramico
 is sharing this wonderful layout
inspired by
April Blend-A-Sketch Challenge:

Sherri said this about her layout:
"I’m loving this Blend-a-Sketch Challenge and I hope you are too! SO MUCH FUN!!
I used photos from a very special trip into NYC, with my friends Melodie and Kimberly who were visiting from out of state, on Thanksgiving Weekend, before their cruise, and my friend Marianne from NJ -who kindly drove us into the city that night. We had such a fun time, and the play was just “Beautiful!”
Here is how I blended the sketches - I used 3 photos, as in the Sketch on the LEFT, and Circles and the basic layout - (tweaked a bit,) from the layout on the RIGHT.
Not only did I add black, red and yellow enamel dots, I added some red Polka Dot paper Washi Tape, and I used BoBunny’s "Double Dot" Yellow Cardstock for the Polka Dot Challenge too!
I hope I’ve inspired you to play along with us this month, and can’t wait to see how you will blend the 2 sketches!

"Small World" Layout by Designer Sherri Caramico


Hello and welcome!
Today we are featuring an awesome layout created by
Designer Sherri Caramico
inspired by the
Sherri:
"The "Cloud" prompt reminded me of photos from a visit to "It's a Small World" at Disneyland, and since "UP" is a Disney (-PIXAR) movie - I decided to use them for my Design Team Inspiration Layout. The balloons made me think of buttons, so I included them in my layout too. 

I love the cloud background paper. I actually cut out the clouds I used as embellishments from the center of the base page - where I knew the holes would be covered by the photos and mats! I then added them as embellishments, using 3-D Foam tape.

I hope the only clouds in your future will be the ones you use on your layout, when you play along with us this month, at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!
((HUGS)) ~ Sherri"
