My take on Lita's first Sketch....

***Don't forget you can click on the pictures to make them bigger!!! ***

I was at a friends house yesterday till about 1 am, I think... all I remember is that it was pass midnight when I was starting to pack up... The kids were tired they fall asleep right away in the car on our drive home.

But we had a lot of fun at Mrs. Ivy's house... :) She was scrapbooking away. I think she did about 2 or 3 (maybe more) two page spreads. While I forgot the projects that I was going to work on at home. But lucky me I grabbed some single photos off the table right before I left the house. So I decided to use those photos and do Lita's sketch sense I was planing on doing that anyways.

So here is my take on it. I did 2 layouts using Lita's sketch #1. You can find it here.

The first layout is of me and our oldest daughter when she was one year old.

I stamped the white accent peace with some swirl stamps all the way around.

Accent Essentials cartridge for the main accent on the page. Size 8 1/2 I think and then the shadow.
Plantin SchoolBook for the title. Size 1 inch.



Chipboard shapes.

Tearing tool from CM.
Swirl clear stamp set by Autumn Leaves.

Scraps of Scrapbook paper that Ivy had... Thanks Ivy for letting me go through your scraps... :)

The second layout is of my dear niece and nephew. I miss these munchkins... :)

I raised the tops of the mushrooms by stamping another mushroom with another color and just cutting out the top part and then used some of the foam tape to raise them up. I LOVE the mushrooms, I so need to get that stamp set.

Mini Monograms cartridge the scalloped circle.
Plantin SchoolBook cartridge for title, size 2 1/2 inches.

Pooh and Friends cartridge for the tree size 3 /12 inch tall.
CTMH Whooo Loves You! Stamp set
CTMH Nature Walk stamp set.
CTMH varies ink pads.

Colored pencils.

Ivy's scraps of papers.

Thanks for looking and I hope you liked my take on this sketch. Be sure to come back to Lita's blog for another sketch on July 25th. Can't wait to see that one!!!!
