Hey everyone!

This is my 200th blog post!!  Yay!  Ok, continuing on to the content...

This post is all about shoes!!  Well, the layout is all about shoes, the post is about the layout that's about the shoes. Lol

Anyway, I created this layout based on the Sketchabilities sketch #123 that was posted just today! Let's just say that I've been multi-tasking all day and now that the creative part of my day is done, it's time for the working part to start. :P

The sketch was all fancy like, and I really liked it because of that. :)  I actually liked it so much that I created a process video for the layout I made and showed off my method of layering while working with this sketch on my computer screen!

Images of the layout are below, but I would really love it if you watch the video too. I killed my camera battery (from a full charge) in order to make it! The layout took me about an hour and 15 minutes to complete.

Thank you so very much for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed the video AND the images this time around!

It's not often that I post a blog post with a creation that isn't required for a challenge, however I felt the need to post this one because it's not something I do often (yet?).

This is an altered canvas that I created based on the Mojo Monday sketch that was posted over on the Flying Unicorn forums.

I also entered this creation into the Mid-month Mxed Media challenge also over on the Flying Unicorn forums.

I created this canvas using the products in the Mixed Art kit from the Flying Unicorn store!  I am So. Happy. with the way it turned out, and it is currently hanging on the wall  in my bedroom. :)

Thanks so much for dropping by!

This layout was created based on the sketch that can be found over on the Creative Scrappers blog (#277)!

I had a photo that I found to be very powerful to me... It's a photo of how "bright" the future can be even though you may be currently in a state of darkness. I took this photo on my old phone while I was in a car, going through a storm.  You could see far enough in the distance to where the rain let up and the sun came back out.  I thought the image was super cool.

I used my Flying Unicorn September kit to create this layout. Some of the light blue "papers" you'll see in the background are actually pieces of the packaging from the Prima flowers that came in the kit. Lol.

Thank you so much for dropping by!

The Mojo Monday sketch for this week has a lot of layers... I'm not sure I dig the card I ended up with now that I'm looking at it the next day, but it'll probably grow on me. Lol

My version...

Meh... It just doesn't speak to me... Ah well, sometimes our creations are like that! I can't dwell on it!

Thanks for meh-ing with me. :P

This sketch was a lot of fun - I really enjoyed the layering it included and thought it to be a good sketch to stick to as close as possible.  The original challenge post can be found here.

I didn't do any stamping on this card, but I used a patterned paper that looked like it was stamped all over for the main focal part of the card. I really liked this patterned paper because the sentiments on it could really turn this card into a good card for a variety of occasions.

Thanks for dropping to check out my take on this sketch! I had a lot of fun with it!!

... And I'm going in head first! LOL

Not that I'm stalking the DT Calls being posted, but I just happened upon the DT call posted over at the Colorful Creations blog today!

Part of the entry was to create a blog post with a layout made using the sketch posted on their blog! I spent the evening after work, before dinner, working on it. At first when I was about to post it, I realized, I had forgotten my title. Silly me! But I went and fixed that up before posting it to my blog. :)

Seems pretty straightforward so far right?  Except that you had to make a layout using fall colours. :) Now, I'm not a colour theory expert or anything, but don't you think that the Prima PPP challenge this month calls for fall colours??

Yeah, so it's not just me, right? I thought so!!  In any case, I've included the layout and some close-up shots of the layout as well!  I hope you all enjoy!!

You may notice, the journaling I did is mostly lyrics to the song Razzle Dazzle, which is the part in the movie (Chicago), from which this photo was taken. I used the Prima Time Traveler's collection to create this layout, in addition to some Distress Paints, Tsukineko Brilliance inks and some lace that I had on my desk. :)

I greatly appreciate you stopping by to check out my work, and I hope to see you back again soon!

BoBunny has challenges again!

And as an entry into the first BoBunny challenge in a long time, I've used the BoBunny Enchanted garden collection to get the ball rolling!

First up, the sketch!

Now these circles made me cringe... I really don't like circles. I don't know why, but as a main focal point, circles do not work with me. But anyway, I tried to get over it to work with this sketch...

I had to grunge up the paper a bit with stamps and stencils to make it more along my style, but I think I made it work...

In hindsight, I would have made the word "Park" in a darker colour, but on paper it looks O.K... for now. :P

Thanks for stopping by!
