Scrapping Recipe Challenge #37 & ScrapCity Sketch Fest Layout

This week, I decided to combine my Scrapping Recipe Challenge #37 at Sketches! {by Tamara} with one of the Sketch Fest challenges that are currently taking place at ScrapCity. This sketch is by Julie Bonner from the 52 Sketches site.



The recipe challenge this week was to use the following three items on our cards or layouts:
  • flowers
  • buttons
  • Stickles or glitter
I love all of those required items, so I had a lot of fun using them on my layout! I used My Mind's Eye papers. The die cut heart is also by MME. I created the punched border with my threading water punch. The flower and the button are Making Memories. The photo anchor is a QuicKutz die cut, and I stamped the date on it. The title was created using my Cricut. I used a hole punch to punch all of those green dots, and I applied them one by one to my layout. I love the way it looks, especially on a dotted background paper!! Finally, I added two trios of Stickles dots to my paper strips. I'm very pleased with this layout!! You can click on it for a larger view.

You can still get in on all of the awesome Sketch Fest Challenges at ScrapCity! The Sketch Fest runs through Friday!! I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!

I love how you combined the two challenges Carol! I can't believe you punched out each of those dots for the circles and individually place them. It looks great though!

That notebook edge on my card I did using the Stampin Up spiral punch. I've had the punch for awhile & finally used it :)
