First Challenge Attempt

One of the reasons I started this blog was to play along with all the wonderful online challenges. This is my first attempt. It is based on this SOUS sketch. www.stuckonusketches.blogspot.com

Another feature of the challenge is to use four different printed papers that you wouldn't ordinarily use. I decided to do a layout of my daughter and to use printed papers chosen by her. These are almost all open stock paper from Michaels that she wanted me to buy for my scrapbooking.

The flower and sunglasses are cut from the Paisley cartridge. The gems, pearls and lace are all from the dollar store.

I think this layout captures my daughters "fancy" side!


  1. Hey I am SO happy that you joined us and thats a great reason to start a blog!
    Really exciting!
    I just finished a project with my soon to be 4 yr old daughter for her upcoming birthday, so I understand how cool it is that you let your daughter choose these papers!
    I bet she had a great time and she has a wonderful eye for color!
    Love the sunglasses cut as well!
    Again, thanks for joining!!!
