Designs for New Week!

Another week of new designs and challenges going on at Practical Scrappers andThe Cuttlebug Spot. First up, here is the weekend challenge that was given on Friday at Practical Scrappers. We had one of two choice to enter:

contest 1: use a doodling template to create your LO
contest 2: must have 3 summer photos and sticker letters

I opted for contest # 2 due to the fact that one thing I do not own is a doodling template ( maybe I can win one--right!).

This LO is of my son Jaedon, from our trip to Splash Lagoon last summer ( these pics were in the pack I found that I forgot to scrap from the trip--LOL)! I also decided to use up this stash of pool paper and die cuts that I've have for 2 years now--hehe, plus some white thickers that I seem to never have enough of!

Next, is my weekly design for Practical Scrappers. Our challenge this week is to use up those stickers ladies ( at least 3 on a page) and they cannot be alpha stickers. I did this double LO of my kids from winter--I was really hot when I did this LO and needed something to cool me down. So, I decided to pull out the snow pics. The kids were sledding down the hill in our front yard on a snow day ( we got like 9 inches of snow on this day).

Things used in this LO:

The giant snowflake and paper down the sides is by Reminisce. I cut the 4 3 inch snowflakes on my cricut using the Home Accents cart. The title "SNOW" were alpha stickers that I stickled with Blueberry Ice Stickles ( also stickled around the 4- 3 inch snowflakes on the sides with Mint Ice Stickles). And last, the snowflakes on the corners of my pics were stickers that I got in a stash of Chirstmas stuff from a swap on a forum.

Here's the LO:

Last, here is probably my favorite LO I've ever done to date. For this week's challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot we got a sketch challenge for ya!! Goodness, do I love sketches!! I like to scrap with a sketch, but I always change it up to make it my own. Sometimes I start with one and end up with something that looks nothing like the sketch, but it give me a place to draw inspiration from. And speaking of great inspiration, our sketch designer for this week's challenge has very much of that. Our very own design team member Miss Aymee Gandy did this fabulous sketch for us. And she has plenty more inspiration where that came from. Her blog is definitely one that you would love to follow. Here's her sketch blog for ya to check out: or you can just find it on her blog on the side bar and she has a direct link to her sketch blog on there.

So here's Aymee's Sketch:

And here's my LO:

Embossing folders used- D'vine Swirls, Swiss Dots, Floral Fantasy

So thanks for stopping in this week, and remember to hop in and particpate in the challenges this week!
