Get Picky Sketch Challenge #8

Ok well the new Get Picky sketch is up over on their blog.... I love Get Picky's challenges and love being on their design team.

This month we were very lucky to be given some Scrapmatts chipboard to work with, and I love them!!! Scrapmatts are the sponser for the sketch challenge and the winner will def have a great prize!! wish i could enter to get some more! haha

so here is the sketch

and my take - i have pretty much kept to the sketch but added a few more layers.

i have been waiting to use these websters pages papers and wanted to do a fun glam page. and after the pics we took at the usher concert, i thought they would be perfect. i have used scrapmatts butterflies and oval frame. i inked them black and added a very thick layer of glossy accents.

Get Picky Inspiration challenge!!!


hope everyone has been well lately. i have finally started feeling better. still get extremely tired though - was never like this is ds1, it feels as if this baby is draining every bit of energy out of me.... i feel like that song (not sure who sings it...) "i dont feel like doing anything..... i just want to lay in my bed" its crazy!!!!! and i know when lil bub is born i will get next to no sleep too.... so its a big roundabout really. my lil boy has just started sleeping through the night (after 15months) but i gathered he will get there when he is ready and he did. wat a good lil man he is!

anyways if u havent had the chance to do so, you should head on over to get picky and have a go at their inspiration challenge this month. its a great colour combo with a pic to give u some more inspiration.

here is the inspo...

and my take......

lots of texture on the background using texture paste and mist.

i also have been doing design team work for Made with Memories. I keep forgetting to photo the layouts before i take them into the store. Anne-Marie gets in lovely products at her shop and I love it! I am also holding my first scrapbooking class in June!!! can not wait.... should be fun and I love to teach people new techniques!!!!

anyways better go..... got the never-ending housework to do!
