SSS - Summer Sketch Challenge



My good friends Alex and Melissa have started a sketch challenge blog that will post a new sketch challenge every other Saturday! The first challenge is up TODAY!! You'll certainly want to check out the Scrap and Stamp Blog, not only for the sketch and inspiration, but also because they are offering up a PRIZE!! Can you guess who their first sponsor is? None other than... Limelight Papercrafts! :) We are so thrilled to be sponsoring this fabulous sketch! We've donated the following prize package to one lucky winner of the challenge:

-Basic Grey Wisteria 6x6 Paper Pad
-Basic Grey Bling It Individual Rhinestone Squares - Silver/Diamond
-Prima Painterly Petals - Urban Cosmos
-Shimmerz Spritz - Concrete

For my scrapbook page (Ooh! Look! I've made THREE now!!), I chose some photos from last summer's vacation to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. The challenge suggests a summer-themed page as well, so I thought this would be perfect! I am still learning to photograph my scrapbook pages, and for some reason the two outer pictures look fuzzy and light. They don't look like that in real life!! But I digress... Myrtle Beach is my husband's FAVORITE place in the world, so I made this with him in mind!

Paper: Bubble Blue, Mia - Whirl, Ink: Color Box - Silver. Accessories: Mia Glitter Borders, Mia Die Cuts, Pink Droplet (on the flower at the top).

I'll be back in a little bit to share my Six Chicks big project for this month... Our theme is Summer's Comin', and I know you'll be inspired and excited about the projects on display! :) For now.... Go try that sketch at Scrap and Stamp! :)
