14th Sept - Sketch

Hi, everyone!
For today's challenge, we have a lovely sketch created by Valerie.  Her sketch is based off the button layout that our August Guest Designer, Kerry Bruce, created.
Here is the sketch:

Isn't it fun?!
And here are the beautiful layouts that our design team created:


Thanks to the sketch I finally did something I wanted for some time - make a circle of sequins and used my sewing machine to sew circles on them. I really enjoyed it! I went all gold as a kind of tribute to my school friends and used lots of vellum paper to keep a lighter touch on the background.

For this challenge I rotate the sketch, I used papers from October Afternoon and a photo of my hubby on our dating aniversary, My favorite part are the library cards I sew, They look so fun!

HeeSun Kim:

The myriads of stars were twinkling in the night sky. I hope that she shines like a star in the night sky.

I chose to use cards from a Projekt Life collection for my layout, just they had the perfect colors (and theme) for my photo.

I cut the buttons from some worn out blazers ages ago - I knew they would be useful one day :-)

That big circle nearly scared me right out of my boots!  I mean... I've done pages with large circles but never really liked the end result... until today.  I still can't believe that my cutie patootie is already seven-months-old.  These pics were taken during his first month of life and highlighted by another conglomerate of manufacturers from Stampin' Up and Pebbles, Inc. to Jenni Bowlin and Market Street Stamps.  It's the way to go, folks ;)!
This was a fun sketch to work with, although the circle scared me a little bit initially!  However, I finally made peace with it (ha!) and rotated the sketch on its side for this layout. 

For this opportunity, I decided to transform the sketchand turned around, but alsochange the figure to a squareif you turn the sketch is similar. I hope you like mylayout and will inspire you to play with shapes.

I love doing layouts with large circles, so I was thrilled with this sketch.  I decided to use this old photo of my little guy. Gotta document the time I sent him to school with chicken pox! :)
