A bunch of Sketch Challenges!!

The first thing I have to share is the challenges I finished last night.
Better late then never I say.
I absolutely love Jen's blog.
She is very creative and talented.
I visit her blog daily to find inspiration.
I made this for Jen's weekend Sketch for You to Try.

I changed the second square to a circle, but I couldn't figure out how to do it otherwise. Guess that's why its a challenge!

Supplies-changito stamped image from a wish Rak,real red cs and marker,close to cocoa cs and marker,creamy caramel marker, red ribbon, circle punches, designer label punch, word window punch,crystal effects,pop dots, swirl stamps.

Then I took a stab at Beates Weekend Sketch Challenge. But I think my card is alittle plain but its finished. Into my card basket to use later.

Supplies- old olive cs and ink, bo bunny dp, real red cs and ink,Su crayons and aqua brush, dew drops, petals wheel, barely banana cs, brad.

The next thing I made was a scrapbook page using Valerie's sketch 59 from Got Sketch?. I got it done just in time for Sketch #60 which was posted yesterday. LOL
This is one of the first pages I have ever done with a sketch.
I really like the idea of using a sketch.
It sure makes your pages look different.
I usually take a ton of pictures and all my pages start to look the exact same.
I am so happy to find more and more sketches out there in blogland to adapt my photos too!
I usually stick a couple pics of the pumpkins on the kids Halloween pages but decided to do its own layout for Pumpkin Carving!

I love how it turned out!
Again I changed it up by putting the title where the journaling should have been!

Supplies-yellow 12x12 cs, little bits wheel, black cs, orange cs, purple cs, retired pumpkins set from CTMH, only orange ink, old olive cs, choc chip ink, black ink, photo corner punch, Halloween brads, circle punch, pop dots, cricut machine with Base Camp cartridge.

I am off to take a little nap when my daughter does since all my housework is done for today. I have a headache (I know, again?, you say). I don't want it to migrate into a migraine. I think they have reoccurred because of stress. Everyone has stress but some people cope differently. I guess my body is telling me I am not coping so well! I know I need to get into the Dr's office, just cant seem to pin point a time.
Have a lovely day!

Yes you should get to the doctors, you keep having these migraine headaches I think you should be checked out.
These cards and scrapbook page are so cute, I love the swirly background on the monkey card and the chick on the other card is too adorable!

You'll get addicted to using the scrapbook sketches just like I have, but they look so nice once you do!
