Sketchy Challenge | June 2014

Another sketchy challenge!!  I have just posted the June 2014 sketch for the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge:

For this challenge, I am using some adorable photos of Connor when he was just a year old - found them in my "to scrap" pile and thought they were perfect for this sketch!

Supplies used:  Bazzill Basics cardstock; Authentique patterned papers; La-La Land die (hot air balloon); Silhouette Cameo; Kolette Hall Studio cut file (Christmas); Habana font; Maya Road kraft flag pin and love heart clip; Freckled Fawn wood cloud; Jenni Bowlin tag; My Mind's Eye and miscellaneous buttons; PaperMate Flair marker; 3L foam adhesive; unknown date tag.

I am loving the Authentique papers!! I had found a couple of paper packs at my local Winners store for $5.99 - and just brought them out to play… awesome colours and I love the non-traditional colours for these Christmastime photos.

Here's some details:

The gorgeous hot air balloon die is from La-La Land - I had never heard of them but saw this cutie when I was browsing through Heather's treasures while at Younique in February and knew I had to use it!!

And yes, I started this layout in February!  Had it all done that weekend, but used my Silhouette at home for the titles.

Hopefully you find some time this month to play along!  Please head over to the Sketchy gallery and get inspired to create your own layout!  You can use the sketch as is or as a springboard for your project - the choice is yours!

If you play along with the sketch this month, upload your layout in the gallery into the June 2014 Sketch section HERE, and then in your comment below, add a link to that layout, by 11:59 pm on June 30, 2014. On or around July 1st, 2014, I will randomly draw a winner from the comments here of those who participated, for a prize!

Stay tuned - I will be announcing our May 2014 Sketchy winner early next week!

**PLEASE NOTE:  In order to qualify for a chance to be published in an upcoming issue, your layout must be posted in the online gallery by June 30th, 2014.  To qualify to win MY prize, you must add a link to your layout BELOW, using the inlinkz tool, by June 30th, 2014.
