Wow! Is it September already?? This year is just flying by. Today, I'm sharing a new layout based on the Sketch N Scrap sketch challenge #64. This is the first sketch for the month of September -- and the sketch is awesome, as always!

Ice Hockey layout for Sketch N Scrap Challenge #64

I had these photos from a hockey game this past winter, and when I saw these awesome Paper House Productions hockey stickers, I knew this page would be so easy to put together. I love it! The hockey papers in the background are from Me & My Big Ideas and Karen Foster, and I used a tab punch by WRMK for the date tab.

I love all the dimension you get from these Paper House Productions stickers. So awesome!

Sketch N Scrap Challenge #63

Hello everyone! I'm back today with a new layout to share based on the Sketch N Scrap sketch challenge #63 -- the third layout sketch for August. I love creating with new sketches -- and this one really sparked my creativity. :)

Each month, Sketch N Scrap offers three layout sketches and two card sketches to challenge your creativity. And if you link up your creation at their site, you'll be entered to win an awesome prize package -- a different prize each month.

Here's sketch #63:

And here's my layout based on the sketch:

Surf Sand Sun layout for Sketch N Scrap Challenge #63 -- www.MightyCrafty.me

I just love it! These are vacation photos from last summer and I wish we could get back to this beautiful beach -- or any beach! For now, I'll have to be satisfied with scrapbooking the photos instead. :)

I used the Paradise Beach paper collection by Echo Park to create this layout. Such a fun, summery collection! I used Sprinklers from October Afternoon in Comet Tail to mist the border strip behind the title, and also used the Relax die set by Quickutz from forever ago to create the little embellishments. They turned out so cute! I used the alpha stickers from the Paradise Beach collection for the title, but I also die cut the SUN letters from craft foam (from Michael's, in a multi-pack) using the Mary Jane lowercase alpha die set by Quickutz. I added in a few shaped paperclips from Freckled Fawn and a flair button too.

Here's the sketch:

And here's the layout I created based on the sketch:

Jack layout for Sketch N Scrap Inspired By challenge #8 -- www.MightyCrafty.me

Oh gosh, I just love this photo! My babies just turned 11 a few weeks ago, so this really takes me back to those early days. I used the Party Animals collection by Kaisercraft. Love the soft colors in this collection! I added in a few chipboard stars by Studio Calico and American Crafts Thickers in Text.

Sketch N Scrap sketch challenge #62

I love the large photo on this sketch! Here's the layout I created based on the sketch:

Legoland layout for Sketch N Scrap -- www.MightyCrafty.me

I love that I was able to get a very theme-y layout created so quickly and with such a fun look. We love Legos at our house, so this trip to the Kansas City Legoland Discovery Center was a fun one for my boys.

I used the Lego paper collection from Creative Imaginations -- so bright and colorful. I don't know that this collection is available any longer, but you can find some other Lego-themed collections at Scrapbook.com that would also work. I used the Dear Lizzy Fantastic Thickers in white for the date at the bottom.
