February 19 Challenge

And we're off! A whole new term starts at The Studio Challenges today, along with our 3 new team mates. We hope you will play along with us this week and check in on the fun challenges (& prizes!) we have in the months to come. Without further ado, we've got this week's challenge - which is to make a page inspired by this sketch from our very own Anna:

Here's how our team interpreted the sketch challenge:


I thought my sketch would go perfectly with the dotty cake a made for my sister-in-laws Birthday and it did!


Fancy some buttons? I got lots of them - so why not use them on a layout!?
For this sketch I used an old photo which was made in 2004, on our way back to the continent from the little island of Amrum in the North Sea, Germany. It's always hard to say good bye to that island but I love going back there some day!


Oh, how I love a simple sketch with clean lines!  Love the playfulness of the circles.  They reminded me of the way our new kitten, Lucky wraps his tail around himself.  Added some cute felties to go with the punched scallop circles and cloth covered brads.  A cheeky title was the final touch! 


Love this sketch :D


For this challenge I choose an older shot of my youngest which I had printed off recently.  I realised that since I started scrapping after they were born I don't have that much of their early years and it has been lovely going back and sorting through the photos.  So here is one of my favourite shots of him as a baby all snuggled up in his baby grow.  


I love working with sketches, especially clean & simple ones that leave lots of white space open for interpretation! As soon as I saw the circles in the sketch - I thought of this photo of my son and his Magic 8 Ball.
