Twisted Sketch 74

I just love Twisted Sketches they are always fun and a little bit different. So I decided to have a go at sketch number 74 which had an animal twist (I wish I had time to do every sketch). Here it is below and if you want to see what the design team made of it you can check it out here.

As you can see I turned the sketch on it's side and I used some gorgeous American Crafts paper called Blue Skies, so bright and cheerful. I forgot to take some close ups of my page but if you click on the image you can see it enlarged.
I'm off now to print out their latest page sketch (76) which has History as it's twist. I'll be looking back at some of my teenage photo's (how scary will that be) to find some inspiration.
Thanks for visiting, back soon with some cards I made today.

Bradfield Craft Club.

This weeks Bradfield Craft Club comes to you with the letter P. No I haven't been watching too much Sesame Street but the P stands for Pagemaps. I do love their sketches so much and I am waiting patiently for their new book to be released over here, before Christmas hopefully (hint, hint).
Anyway here is the Pagemap sketch for the layout that I chose and the additional element was ribbon (I thought we would have a little bit hanging around in our stash somewhere).

Here is my take on the sketch.

and Joan's.

Let's not forget the card sketch.

Nature's Wonder.

I follow a sketch challenge blog called STUCK! This month's 1st sketch was lovely and basic so you can really let your own style take over.

The sketch.

Here is my take on the sketch. I used Cosmo Cricket Earth Love papers which are so perfect for my woodland photo. The tree in the photo is called Old Knobbly locally and is old and gnarled but has a certain beauty about it, my three girls are climbing it but my youngest is giving me grumpy looks as she can't get any higher.

A close up of the cute owl sticker in the corner and the little birds that were cut out of the paper I used.
