Cherish

Sketchabilities DT-Sketch #58
Here is my take on the October 30th Sketch from Sketchabilities. It was a really fun sketch to work with because you could use many strips of paper in the background and that helps get rid of scraps from your stash. I used these pastel coloured papers by Crate Paper to give it a soft and calm feel. I used this picture of my hubby and me at the beach in the Bahamas. I cut the picture in the shape of a circle, which I haven't done in a really long time. I don't usually like to cut pictures in different shapes because it takes away from the whole picture. I usually try to match the papers to the colours in my picture and this is pretty close. So go on over to Sketchabilites to see some of the other sketches designed by Karan you will love them all!!

At Scrapbookers Anonymous there is another challenge going on. They call it the A-Z challenge and this month we have to use the letter "C".  The point of the challenge is to use different things on your layout that start with the letter C.  I used Crate Paper, Circles, Chipboard and my title starts with the letter C. I think I meet the criteria on this one!! Enjoy!!
