StuckOnUSketches Challenge #5

This is the page I made for the weekly challenge at SOUS. Had a little trouble trying to figure out what to do with it, but I think it came together nicely. And of course, I had to make it into a double!

Backyard-Page Maps Blog

This is a layout I started from a sketch at for a contest and it got a life of its own. I kept to the sketch pretty close! I still have yet to get the whole sewing business on paper down, so my expensive sewing machine sits sadly in the corner alone. I did do some sewing on this page but its all by hand. Here is the sketch we were given to work with and the page the came from it!
My lovely sewing....

StuckOnUSketches Challenge #4

I have been in a Halloween kind of mood (wonder why??). This week for the challenge at I made a page of the boys in their costumes Halloween 2006. They were ninjas so I used SCAL to cut a little ninja figure for the bottom of the page and used SCAL for the title. I love me some SCAL!

This is the sketch we had to work with...

StuckOnUSketches Challenge #3- Halloween

I am really having fun with the sketches these ladies are choosing! I love doing challenges (keeps me motivated), but most challenges seem to be one photo, one page layouts. I never take just one photo, so I have to get creative and turn one into two. This is Halloween last year. We went out trick or treating with some friends. Before we left I took some pictures on the deck of the boys with Grandma and dressed up!

Here is the sketch I tried to follow....
