Let's Scrap 3-23-11, TPV & Sketches in Thyme Layout

Hello all my creative friends!  I am feeling a bit better this evening, and my friend Shannon is traveling in Kansas City and wanted to Skypebook.  What a perfect reason to start our Honeymoon Album in Spain! Oh and there were a couple of great challenges/sketches that I was desperate to join in on.

First, here is my layout:

I used Let's Scrap Sketch 3-23-11 for this layout.  I loved the sketch and have been trying to get to this layout all week!  Here is the amazing sketch:

I also used The Paper Variety's Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  Here is the tic tac toe board this week:

I chose the diagonal board - to make a layout, use a stamped image or sentiment and use spring colors.  Even though the photos are a bit dark, our trip was at the end of March/beginning of April in the springtime, so I wanted the colors to be reminiscent of that time.  Also, our wedding colors were green and pink, so I used the variation of light teal and mauve.  I even added to the spring theme of butterflies!

Finally, I used the Sketches in Thyme – Thursday Sketch layout Takes #41 Open ChallengeFor this challenge you just had to create a project based on a sketch. This layout worked perfect for that!

I am really enjoying combining challenges.  It really makes me stretch my creativity and stash! I even created a spreadsheet to track challenges that I would like to participate in with the dates the challenges are due.  I know....... a bit crazy, that's the engineer in me coming out.

Here are a couple of detailed shots:

I used a lot of stamping on this layout.  First, I used faux stitching in clover meadow (CTMH) around the tan background.  I also used stamps for the Unforgettable sentiment and the arrow under the main title.  I also used a pearl pin for the first time along with some decorative paper clips.

Materials used:  paper - CTMH (wings paper pack); stamps - CTMH (Togetherness and Picture Perfect); ribbon - CTMH; Pretty pearl pin - CTMH; decorative paper clips - Basic Grey; stickers - CTMH; tag - CTMH; tag topper - Prima Marketing (Say it in Pearls); title - thickers by American Crafts; ink - CTMH (clover meadow and black).

Thanks so much for visiting! I'm wishing you each a fabulous hump day tomorrow!
