Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine May Sketchy Challenge

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a pleasant Sunday.  Today I wanted to share a layout I created for the May Sketchy Challenge at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine.  I love this magazine and am honoured to be published in several issues of the magazine.

As time permits, I like to challenge myself to play along with their sketch and since yesterday was National Scrapbook Day, I had some time.

The photo of this handsome little guy was taken by my friend Stephanie over at Rockwood Photography.  I used the 6X6 paper pad of My Mind's Eye Charmed Collection by Jen Allyson for the papers and outlined all the 3X3 paper squares in black pen.  I then added some spider web die cuts that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo and then added a variety of stamps, red jewels and paint splatters on the white card stock background.  I like putting a different spin on paper and for this layout I made a halloween layout with black, gold, red and white instead of the traditional orange and black.

Here is the sketch I was inspired by that was created by Sue Sykes.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to create a layout with this sketch.  Have a wonderful, creative day!
