Canadian Scrapbooker August Sketchy Challenge

Hello and happy Monday!

I hope all of my scrappy friends had a chance to create this past weekend.  I know a lot of scrapbookers take a break in the summer but autumn is just around the corner and the kids are going back to school so I know a lot of you out there will be taking out those papers and embellishments once again.

I love sketches and love taking part in sketchy challenges when my design team assignments are completed.  I try to enter the sketchy challenge at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine as often as I can.  Here is one I created with the awesome sketch by Sue Sykes for the August 2013 Sketchy Challenge.

This photo has a special place in my heart because it was a "lightbulb" moment when I captured this photo and it won second place in a local newspaper's weekly photo contest.

Here are some more detailed photos.  I am loving the washi tape, flair buttons and wood veneer embellishment craze at the moment.  The papers and stickers are from October Afternoon's Travel Girl Collection.

Here is Sue Sykes's sketch that inspired me:

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
