LPS Sketch Challenge #2 and CSI #60

Life.Paper.Scrapbook's Sketch Challenge #2 is officially open. Be sure to join us and This month Give A Girl... is giving one lucky person a stamp set of their choice. Give A Girl... is an Australia online store that sells fabulous clear stamp sets designed by the talented Kellie Winnell AND if your blog needs a freshen up with some beautiful graphics she does that too! (find out more about that here)

Here are the details:
- You can submit ANY kind of project - cards, layouts or anything you can use the sketch for
- You can use the sketch and colour challenge together just make sure you link it up to each so you have a chance to win in both. 
- Sketch challenge #2 runs until 11.59pm 15 March. (Don't forget we are in Australia)
- The winner of the prize will be randomly drawn
- We will also feature three of the favourite layouts and the selected layouts will be asked to guest design for the next sketch challenge. 
***AND there is a chance we may select your project for our March issue. 

Here is the sketch and my layout:

I was inspired to interpret this sketch by creating a row of banners to complement my photo.  So how did I go about making my own banners? 

Step 1: Cut down varying sizes of patterned papers. This gives the layout a more textured effect. 
Step 2: Notch the sides and cut banners.
Step 3: Punch two holes on either side of the banner. Put a string across all banners and secure it with brads.
Step 4: Find little embellishments that can be placed on top of your banners.


CSI #60 is officially open. Cant believe we are at our last Feb Challenge for the month. Be sure to check the details here.

I took a different approach for this layout. Not very sure how I feel about it but i am glad I tried it. I wanted to make the centre heart piece to be the focal point. So buttons and associated brads were chosen to match the layout. The part which I am not liking its the area below the heart. It didnt turn out the way I want but its always a learning point to do better. 

So that's it. Its a wrap for Saturday. 
I will be back soon to share more stuff.
