Blogger's Challenge #120 Sketch

Click on picture to see a more detailed view


Welcome to #120 of Blogger's challenge week. Take a boo over HERE to see what other players created using Lisa Somerville's sketch.

I am using a scrapbook layout....need to get those pictures scrapped. This page is of my grandson, who loves the outdoors and his bike. I found it a little hard to follow the sketch exactly, and aligning the circle to the right made it much easier to use the picture for my focal point. The larger letters are just perfect as borders and embellishing around the photo. I love to embellish using word-art on my layouts for the male gender.
The word-art are was die cuts from an electronic machine and patterned paper from another craft source.

Cardstock is from Stampin Up: Red Riding Hood Red (retired), Tempting Turquoise, Pumkin Pie, Real Red, Old Olive.

Ink: sponged edges of cardstock and word 'OUTSIDE' with Craft Black. I distressed the background red Cardstock with a a retired distressing wheel by Stampin Up using white craft ink. This is a technique I use when I want to subdue the brightness of my color.


thanks for stopping by
