Challenges, Challenges

How did it get so hot all of a sudden? It was 9:45 in the morning and already I was sweating! Geesh!

Last night I did a bunch of scrapbooking for a variety of different challenges. It feels good to see old stuff in my stash get used up. It's especially nice to see that I can use Christmas papers for non-Christmas layouts, as evidenced below.

This is for the 4.29 sketch challenge at Sketchy Thursdays. I really need to get myself a big bracket template because my hand-drawn ones are always a little wonky. Oh well. I myself am a little wonky.

Next up, are a bunch of layouts for various challenges at Twisted Sketches. First, we have this layout based on sketch 45. The twist was "laugh" and I gave it a very loose interpretation. The word is in the first line of my journaling: "This tenement was no laughing matter." And it wasn't. I'm so glad I never have and never will live in a tenement. Yuck.

I misted on this and did some stamp/chalking along the edge of the white, lace paper. So fun! Again, I really need to go out and buy more colors of the chalk ink and the misting spray. These are really fun and easy elements to use.

This next one is based on sketch 44 at Twisted Sketches with a twist of "orange." As you can see, the color orange features prominently.

And this last one is probably my favorite of the bunch. I got to use a whole bunch of random scraps for this and I really like how it all turned out. This is based on Twisted Sketches sketch 43. The twist was "pattern" and I used a nice big bold one as my background.

Thanks for looking everyone!!
