Playing along with LGS Challenge #28

I took some time yesterday to play along with this weeks sketch challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy. As a reminder, here is the sketch for Challenge #28.


And here's the layout I came up with.


I am attempting to scrap moments shortly after they happen (as well as catch up on older stories) so these pictures were taken on Tuesday of this week. This is Paige showing off her new desk and posing with her new teacher. She is in a split Grade 1/2 class this year which I hope will challenge her just enough!


I really had fun with this sketch and since I'm also entering it into the Seriously Creative September Challenge, I used several textural elements (there's a close up at the end of this post). There is cork behind the two photos, the clocks are cut out of a canvas piece of patterned 12x12 and the cardboard I found in my stash. It's probably old packaging material or something. As far as the text print ... I kind of forgot that was one of the challenge elements to be honest. But I do have numbers on one of my patterned papers so maybe that can count!! :)

I have had these alphas forEVER and they are seriously depleted and lacking in stick now so I made an 'r' out of an upside down 'j' and an 'a' out of a 'd'. It's always fun to see what you can make out of what you have!! Oh, and to ensure they stay stuck I used micro glue dots on the back.

Here's that close up I talked about showing all the different textures. And what do you know! A text print in there after all!! On a recent trip to Michael's I found piles of cool textures. The sheet of sticky back cork was one as well as the canvas clock prints. Love finding cool products like that!

Last close up for today - just showing more of my fun circles.

Thanks for stopping by! You've still got a little bit of time to get in on the fun over at Let's Get Sketchy! To be entered into the monthly draw you need to complete 2 of the 4 weekly sketches. I'd love to see one of my friends win the prize which is a $20 GC to Scraptastic kit club. Layouts based on this sketch are due by 8PM MST on Sunday the 16th. 

Have a great weekend everyone!!

  1. I love this layout sooooooo much! All the textures and chevrons, and that clock is awesome!!! And thanks for entering our challenge, we always love it when you do, and if you pop over to my blog, you'll see I got a page in for this sketch with a mere 40 minutes to spare - how's that for cutting it close? Hugs, Rox.
