CUC Mad About Sketches

Are you mad about sketches?  If so, then stop by the Cookin' Up Creations forum and join us for our 3rd Annual Mad About Sketches featuring the talented,  Liz Chidester!   July 1st through July 25th the challenge team will create an example layout using one of Liz Chidester's fabulous sketches.

Here is the first sketch I was given to work with this month.


And here is the layout I created using the above sketch.


I really loved this sketch so I pretty much stayed true to it.  I did however, use one photo instead of two.  I also used the Hey You and Hey Boy collections by Basic Grey to complete my layout.  I'm participating in the July Slash Your Stash over at My Sketches and More and Turtle Soup so every project I complete this month will be using these two collections.  

Below is the second sketch I was given to work with.


And here is my take on it.


For this layout I decided to turn the sketch 90 degrees, and yes those feet are mine.  lol.  I guess you're never to old to wear a pair of chucks! Again I used the Hey You and Hey Boy collections by Basic Grey.

Here is the third sketch I was given to work with.   


And here is my take on it.


So far I think this one was my favorite.  I had scrapped this photo of my son before but wasn't pleased with the results so I decided to scrap it again, and I am soooo much happier with it.

I'm also linking this up with the Red, White and Blue challenge over at Scrap Our Stash.  Use red, white, blue and the only other color we could use was kraft. We also had to use three or more pre-made stars.  I used three red star eyelets that I've had forevah and an old Making Memories metal star.

And Lasting Memories LM #148 - Country Charm challenge.  Red, White and Blue - my country's colors and a metal star for a charm. 

Thanks for looking!

Funny...I could scrap the same pictures of my kids over and over. As they get older, the pictures are fewer and far between. You did a great job on the layout!
