Whew, is May finally over? I can't wait for June and the end of school and hello Summer!! Here is this weeks Critter Sketch Challenge. This weeks challenge is a color and inspiration challenge. The color purple and flowers needed to be a part of the design. I found a Basic Grey page kit and I liked the layout that was used. I didn't buy the kit or the paper but I made this layout using Basic Grey paper (green at Heart) I already had in my stash! I liked the layout so much that I made a second using paper from the Pressed Petals Cats N' Dogs collection. I am giving this layout to Butterflygirl2878 (Jaime) on SCS for her dog pictures. I wanted to show the contrast in papers using the same layout design. I really like how this layout came out too!!

I was able to make two layouts with my new favorite paper. I love the Basic Grey paper's!! I also love that I am getting some old pictures scrapped. I think I like this brand because everything coordinates. No hunting for paper that matches. I really like the colors, too!

I made this page for a swap on SCS. It is a general Disney themed page and I like to be able to put a lot of pictures on a page. I had a bunch of miscellaneous pictures from Disneyland. You know the ones, where you don't really have a theme going or enough pictures to create a page just for that. Well, these pictures I though were perfect for this LO and I got it into an album! That's feels good especially since the pictures are from 2004!!

This weeks challenge at Critter Sketch Challenge is a sketch challenge. Also Dustin Pike is the sponsor for this months challenge so if you haven't checked out his designs before or tried digi stamps, here is your chance! If you aren't too sure about digi stamps, then you can always try out one of Dustin's freebies to get you started. That is where I found this little guy. Every year when I was little we watched the Wizard of Oz and those flying monkeys used to scare me and I would cry and cry! Well this one is more whimsical than the ones that made me cry! I hope you like the card!!
and the sketch:

I started working on my kids professional portraits about 3 yrs ago. I got started with one child (up to the first 9 months), then I stopped! Well, I was able to scrap a few more last weekend and here is one that I did of my middle child. She was three years old in those pictures and now she is 12!

This weeks Critter Sketch Challenge was a sketch with a catch, you had to use green on somewhere on your card. Also Dustin Pike is the sponsor for May (where did April go?). So I used one of Dustin's digital images. If you have never used a digital image before, they are wonderful! You can size the image any size you want and print to your favorite paper. This little guy is mantis and I decided that he would make a great firefly instead! I also thought this would make a great card for a guy (young or old)! I used copics to color the image.
