16th Sept- Sketch

It's the second challenge of the month which only means one thing around here, it's time for another lovely sketch! Here is today's great sketch Valerie created
The design team have really gone to town with this sketch, wait until you see what they have all created!

Created with the Ruby Rock-it Arcadia collection and my Silhouette Cameo

 This sketch gives you quite a lot of room for interpretation which is great! I decided to make the circles bigger, I painted two of them on the page then added some twine around them.
 I made my third circle using silver pen which you can hardly see in the photo of the layout as it doesn't like being photographed!
I love the finished result, thanks Val!

It happened that I watched a lot of the Sailing Events of the Olympic Games this summer - and to capture these moments forever I made a layout about the Olympics' Greatest Sailor Ben Ainslie. The pictures for this layout are all from the official London 2012 website.

This was such a fun sketch to work with. I actually was a bit inspired while I was baking some cupcakes and thought why not use the liners on my page! So I grabbed two of the liners and a dollie to highlight my baby girl who is just as sweet as can be. 

I really love Val's sketches but I'm not a lover of circles at all so I put rectangles instead of circles.
This scrap is full of colors and full of energy because the photo was made during this Summer. It reminds me about those happy and crazy days.

I loved this sketch, and stuck to it pretty closely for my layout. Thanks for another great sketch Val!


I had a lot of fun with this sketch!  I flipped it on it's side and turned it into an 8.5 x 11" layout.


I love Val's sketches and here is my take.  I used some beautiful MME papers and had a dug out my mists and paints to add some texture to the page.  The photos are from my son's birthday party - they aren't that great as they are indoors but in the smaller size you don't notice so much....and it had to be documented anyway!


Here's my version of Val's sketch. I <3 your sketches so much :) 
I've used white crocheted doilies representing the circles in the sketch and the texture looks great against the soft feminine palette of cream and rose pink. 


I wanted to document how much fun we had this summer cray fishing... we actually went cray fishing every single day on our one week vacation at Strömstad.
I misted 2 doilies and used as the circles on the sketch together with a print from Studio Calico. Instead of framing the entire page I did two edges. The title Krabbfiske means Cray fishing.

I loved the circles in the sketch, but decided to replace the top one with an ampersand mask. The layout came together quickly, which is the sign of a fabulous sketch!

I didn't stray far from the original sketch for my interpretation:

And if that wasn't enough here are a couple of the Ruby Rock-it design Team's take on the sketch:
