Playing Along With Let's Get Sketchy - February Week 2

Welcome to another Monday morning and another Let's Get Sketchy challenge. This is the second sketch for February and it seems like a great time to remind you all that to be eligible to win each month's prize you need to complete 3 of the 4 weekly sketches. You've got all month to get those sketches in so don't panic if you think you've already missed a week!

And now onto my contribution. 

I sort of switched the photo placements around but kept to rest of the sketch pretty much. This is Paige's Kindergarten pictures. She's still got those chubby little kid cheeks - so cute!! I liked the back ground texture in the sketch (below) so I used my Mister Huey's to create a similar feel. Then backed it with a full piece of Stampin' Up DSP. The blue totally matched the blue background in Paige's picture! Plus it meas I'm using 2 full sheets of 12x12 paper! Woo hoo!! Stash bustin' baby!!

Here's the sketch TeamB is using this week.

And some detail shots.
I am really loving digging through my stash and finding (and USING) the products in it. These may not be the most recent releases but I truly don't think that matters! I am compiling them in a way that is fresh and current so they feel fresh and current too.


Oh, and yes, the two hearts on this layout were leftovers from this layout. I always keep any extra shapes I've punched or die cut (and now I have a pretty little container to keep them in - see here) so when a layout calls for a little something, I have a stash at hand to dig through.

The journaling is on this little tag that I tucked behind the photos at the bottom of the layout. I liked that the card was a yellow grid because the colour matched Paige's shirt and it felt "school-like". Like a yellow legal pad or something. It's the littlest details sometimes!

Thanks for coming to visit today. I've got several wonderful posts lined up this week and on Thursday I will also have an exciting announcement to make. Hope you come back for it!!
Happy Monday everyone. Hope you have a great week!!
