Anyone feel like a challenge?

Sometime towards the end of last year my scrapping mojo ran away and ever since I've been looking for it, so I decided to give the sketch challenge over at Anna's Craft Cupboard a try, and you know, I'm rather pleased with the results! Oh don't get me wrong, it's not going to be winning any prizes anytime soon, but I had fun doing it, and that was the most important part.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings, here's a pic.

It was great, I used up some old Basic Grey papers and some scraps that I had sitting around and I also got to use a picture I'd had for a while of my husband, Phil, his brother Bruce and Father Colin on the day of Bruce's wedding back in May 2008.

The title was cut using Platin Schoolbook on my Gypsy, and to get the thickness in the letters I cut them out of black Cricut chipboard twice and stuck them together using a small Xyron sticker maker. I thin cut the title out of the colour Bazzil that I needed. The circle was also cut using the Gypsy, I think by memory the circle was from "Gypsy Font".
We'll, that's all for now, hopefully I can put some more pic's up soon. But in the mean time, if you feel like a challenge pop on over to Anna's and have a go at the sketch challenge, it's a great way to think outside the box.
Until next time,
Kaye :o)


  1. Gorgeous take on the challenge Kaye.. i love the chocolate/blue combo, and there is nothing better than getting a layout done of a photo that has been staring at you for ages from your desk. :)
