Here we go.... Last week of the Scrapability Sketches Scrapmaster competition.

For the last 3 challenges we had to use a previous sketch, build a layout & use masking.

Challenge #1 - We had to follow this sketch...
We also had to include a circle, journal tag, bling, date, ribbon, the colours purple and kraft and flowers!

This is my take:

{So Sweet}

A lot of items required and I put them all in a very small space! LOL!

Challenge #2 was to build a page using texture and dimension. The catch - we had to start off by using kraft coloured cardstock and add green. The rest was then up to us. I've relied heavily on the words kraft "coloured" as I really wanted to use this handmade paper as my base. hee! I don't know if I've gotten away with it, but every now and then I guess you need to push the boundaries! ;)

{Our Spring Garden}

I have layered and layered here! Not that you can tell by this photo! LOL! Maybe this will help....

Hhhhmmmmm! Not really! LOL!

Handmade paper; paint (used a paper doily as a mask); patterned paper strips; patterned paper block (my green element); tags, string; photos; alphas; ribbon and felt; diecuts; embellishments - shaker stickers, flower punches, bling, stickers, clouds and more: clouds (found here); ink, pop dots and lots of foam tape!

Challenge #3 was to use masking on the background.

{Not so Perfect photo}

I love this photo!! Even though it is far from perfect! (But when are these"sitting on Santa's lap" photos!!) It was a spur of the moment decision to get this shopping centre shot. Tahlia had been growing her fringe out for her ballet recital and was hastily pulled back, Liam refused to show his teeth - because he was mithing thum!, Ethan was so excited that he was pulling on his shirt, and poor Cam just freaked out as soon as he was plonked down on Santa's lap!!

And that is why I love it! A perfect time capsule of that moment!

These challenges were a lot of fun. It really got the creative juices flowing! Thanks for visiting..x
