What better way to get some pages done and spark your creativity than to find some great great challenges.
The first challenge I used for these layouts was
Picture This 2 Photos + dark background + butterfly
Well for two pictures I found this sketch from Sketch N Scrap Sketch 76,
I found these two adorable pictures of my granddaughter Brittany who is 3.
I choose a brought flower paper which had some black in it to match to pop against the black background. The pink and blue punched pieces were done using Martha Stewart Punches. I used the cutoff edge of tiny flowers down on the bottom of the page. Added a bright pink doily, some inked chipboard butterflies and fussy cut flowers from the paper. These are pop dotted in two layers to give dimension The title smile is in black from Silhouette America and I then offset it in white. The last little added touch is a pink butterfly paper clip.

For the second page since I like double pages most of the time I found a three picture sketch at
Let's Capture Our Memories- Sketch 113
I liked the polka dot border of the sketch so I found some white with black polka dot paper and then mounted a piece of Black Bazzil to it. Next I used the backside of the flower paper I used in the first layout. Cutting on the border lines to make the top edge and the flowers where the arrows are. I then found some cute journaling cards and word stickers for the thoughts card and the title. The flowers are again fussy cut from the paper and some are pop dotted for dimension
Here is the lovely sketch from Page Maps at Let's Capture Our Memories- Sketch 113
So now I have an adorable two page matching layout using two different sketches
and some fun paper.
Thanks for looking and would love to hear your comments.
