Sketches & Papertake

I am definitely addicted to these challenges! And I am getting so many scrapbook pages done, I don't think I will stop anytime soon!!

Here is my page for the Sketches {by tamara} Layout #45. I love the way it came out. It is my daughter and her friends in summer of 2007. They were just sitting in the grass and I got these great pictures!! I have one picture of the three of them together which I hope to be able to do for another challenge I saw recently.
Papers are Sassafrass Lass, brads and ink are CTMH, stamp & flower are both Heidi Swapp.

Next - is a card I made based on the Sketches! {by tamara} Guest Designer - Stephanie Hargis. It was the first time I was able to use my Cornish Heritage Farm stamps - U R a Hoot is the name of the set and it is designed by Kim Hughes. I LOVE her stamps! I just discovered them and I will definitely be back for more. The sentiments is stamped onto twill (don't know what company it is - it was the last piece I had in my scrap bucket) held on with two orange bigger brads from CTMH.

I must tell you I totally adore this last layout. It was taken at Roger Williams Zoo here in Providence, Rhode Island. Don't ask me how I got this picture - I don't know and since it is an action shot, I couldn't have planned it! I am just very GRATEFUL to have gotten it.

The papers I used came in a kit from Apron Strings Designs. I love their monthly kits. If you have been reading my blog at all, I have been using them quite frequently lately.

I have to tell you that when I saw this sketch, I wasn't keen on it and wasn't even sure I was going to do it. As I started putting it together - I was VERY glad I did. I love the way it came out. Because I did it as a page instead of a card, my "sentiment" was pushed off to the side. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. thanks so much for the inspiration!!

I love your interpretation of Tamara's sketch. The photos are lovely and the pinks in the background set them off beautifully.
