Grow

I'm delighted to be a guest designer this month for the Sketch Challenge at Scrap Friends. I was one of the Top 3 Features in their blog last month and I was invited to create a layout with their next sketch.

I love their sketches because they are grungy looking and have lots of layers.

I titled it Grow for a new challenge at Ces't Magnifique. CM is hosting now 2 challenges a month. One is a sketch challenge and the other is a word challenge. The word this month is Grow and here is my journaling (which is hidden in an envelope behind the pictures): "I hope you always grow carefree and happy in everything you do.... "

I used 7 Dots Studio papers that I got in my CM kit and some beautiful Prima embellishments. The chipboard corner is from 2 Crafty. I also used a piece of Prima packaging for the journaling.

I used ripped papers from 2 different collections from 7 Dots Studios: Dreamer and Wonderland. 7 Dots is hosting a challenge on their blog and you need to use at least 2 of their collections. I wish I had them all. Their new Domestic Goddess collection is stunning.

Here is the layout I created of my kids playing by the lake:







Materials Used
Papers: 7 Dots Studios, Dreamer and Wonderland
Glitz Designs
Flowers and Butterfly: Prima
resin flowers: Recollections
Envelope: Maya Road
Alphas: Jillibean Soup
Green Raffia: Unknown
Chipboard corner: 2 Crafty

Corner Elegant Set (unit of 3)

Thanks for visiting my blog!!
