Guest Sketch Artist for Scrap Our Stash

I am excited to share that I am the Guest Sketch Designer for Scrap Our Stash this month!

  On this site you combine the use of a sketch with a stash busting item.  I love the concept and was excited to play along! Here is the sketch that I designed:

And here's the layout I created to go along with it!
I decided to use the fun Doodlebug Back to School Collection for the layout.  If you really want to get through a project fast - use one collection and a sketch. It's a serious time saver! I used to work with stuff from all over my stash but I have learned over the last couple years what a time saver it is to work mostly from one collection.  That has helped me to keep my studio more organized too - I know it's important to keep collections together so I can easily grab them!

I have been waiting for the right collection to use to scrap these pictures.  This was my daughter's first day of first grade.  She woke up that morning with a bug bite on her eyelid. As you can see in the pictures her eye area is swollen.  We weren't sure at first if it was pink eye or a bug bite - imagine missing the first day of school because of pink eye!  She ended up having a great day despite the rough start!

The stash busting item to use this month for the challenge was metal.  I used brads throughout the top and bottom of my layout!  I added some over the top of the dots in the patterned paper to add some dimension up there. It doesn't show as well in the picture as I'd like - but in person it's fabulous ;)!

 At the bottom I used them more like scattered enamel dots!
I don't always have the right color of enamel dots and I have been going to brads fairly regularly lately as a substitute when I need it.  You can barely tell the difference!

There's a great prize over at Scrap Our Stash from Creative Embellishments!  Come play along and join in the fun!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug Design
Stickers: Doodlebug Design
Enamel Dots: Eyelet Outlet
Brads: Hobby Lobby
