I barely submitted week 1 before week 2 came out, but I made it. I had a real struggle with this one - just couldn't make it my own. But I think I like the way it turned out. I'll have to live with it a little while first. I did the twist because I have never cut my pictures into shapes before. I just learned how and I think I like it.

I have not touched these sketches at all. Should be working on them this week. If I could do 4 LO's for NSD, I am hoping to do atleast 2 in a week when my dh is not around looking after the baby. So I am off to go select some pics.

Btw Jami, love all your nephew's LO's.

I am done with Week 2. Soon as I saw it I knew which photo I wanted to scrap up. Hard part was digging through the paper stack and coming up with a plan.

Soon as summer break starts, step one is CLEAN my SCRAP ROOM. Step 2 is BLOCK MY PAPERS so I HAVE A PLAN FROM NOW ON!

Anyway - here's Sketch #2. I'm working on an IDEA for the week 1 bonus, but nothing is gelling just yet.

Fudgsicles


*Twisted*
1. Changed from 2 photos to 1 photo
2. Moved banner to bottom of layout
3. Increased the width of the top layer paper.
4. Incorporated title into embellishment
5. Added ribbon
6. No Journaling Tag - I always journal on the back.

Hello Ladies,

I found your challenge last week while I was searching for inspiration. I worked on the sketches from Wks 1 & 2 and have come back for week 3.

Thank you so much for this thread and challenge. I basically didn't scrap at all last year (took up another addicting habit - quilting) and since I was so far behind to begin with, now I'm really behind.

My take on week #3. Can I just say that it's harder than I thought to go from 12x12 down to 8 1/2 x 11!! So there are few changes on this to make it work!! Hope that's ok!!

Ok, ladies here are the LOs your sketches helped me with.

Week#1
Camo Baby By Nrthwdscrapper

Week#1 Bonus sketch.
ummm, I decided not to upload this LO after closer examination from an outsider's point of view I decided that at a quick glance.....people might think my DH is naked. He has on swimming trucks but I thought better not risk it. Trust me when I say I did a week 1 bonus.

Week#2
This one I turned 90 degrees and used that way.

Lacey & Alex By Nrthwdscrapper

Week 2 Bonus:
Bathtime at Grandma's By Nrthwdscrapper

Also you posted SketchSavvy#8 - this is mine.

Thanks, Jami. I was prepared to wait till the next one in June, if need be. I'm not sure where I'll start. I have an art journal that my therapist wants me to use, and I'm thinking it'll be easier for me to use sketches in it.
