Memories... sketch # 308

Hello my Scrappy Friends! I couldn't wait to get started on this page when I saw this sketch and knew how I wanted to combine it with 3 other challenges to make it a Fun and Interesting challenge! I used sketch # 308 from Sketch Inspiration .
Here's the sketch-

When I saw this I knew I could combine this with the "white canvas challenge # 61 over at  Scrapfit. The Paper Girls challenge "use a film strip" and Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge use brads or eyelets if you look on the border film strip I used a Camera eyelet!

Here's my page!

I used foam tape under the film to give it that added dimension to make it pop off the page! In the center I double'd the foam tape and it really looks cool! I also added foam tape under the lens of the camera's to make it pop too!

Sketch # 307 Sketch Inspiration ..

Hello my Scrappy Friends! I hope you enjoy your weekend! I plan to work on some challenges this weekend! I have to take advantage of whatever free time I have. Well today's page is for a challenge over at Sketch Inspiration! I have belonged to the group for quit a while now but haven't participated in many challenges and this one I just had to find time to because I just loved the sketch by artist  Paula Schober. Here is her sketch-

 I turned the sketch on the side because it fit my pictures better that way. I used My Mind's Eye, DCWV card stock  and scraps of paper and ribbon. I tinted crocheted with distressing ink by Close to my Heart, added the butterfly and the hearts. The flowers were something I made using scraps and then added a little pearl center. Oh I also used my Tim Holtz distresser!! I just love distressing my paper, added a little ink from Studio G to add a little more distressing.

I'm also entering this into Scrapbookers Anonymous. scrap the letter G. I scrapped my 2 girls and my niece. 

Thanks for stopping by!
