U Had Me @ Meow

Hello and happy October to you!
Wow!  Another month down.  Where is the time going?

With it being the 1st of the month that means we have a new sketch for you at Stuck?! Sketches and and I want to share my take with you.

and here is the sketch.

I flipped the sketch and changed it up a bit to make it my own.  That's why I love designing with a sketch, it's a great starting point with so many possibilities.

For this layout I used the This & That collection by Echo Park.  I added a doilie behind the photo for my circle, which I dredged the edges into brown mist for the intense color.  I also inked the edges on my Heidi Swapp banner to give it that brown color as well.  I decided not to actually color the doilie or banner because I liked the light on light look, giving my photo a pop.  Oh, and look at my wooden cat head accent!  Isnt it the cutest?!

Here are a few close ups for better detail.

I am so in love with that little wooden cat head accent and that meow paper clip is pretty cute too!  Just a couple of buys of mine from the Scrapbook Expo that I attended last month.

We are adding a little extra fun with this challenge and partnering up with Color Me Scrappy, who are further challenging you to use this gorgeous fall color combo to create with.  

If you play along with both the sketch and the color combo you can link up with both challenge sites, for a chance at extra prizes!

Ok, now its your turn!  Head over to Stuck?! Sketches for tons of inspiration and give this sketch a try!  Be sure to upload by October 29 for your chance to win some nice goodies, chosen by

Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate the feedback.  Happy scrapping to you!
