I posted last month about the Stick it Down design team call, that I myself entered. I got a spot on the double page team! I can't wait to officially start with the team and challenges in the new year!
I hope you join us!
Welcome to the SG Blog Hop for December, if this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link.
My layout is coming from the downloads this time, specifically the April 2013 Individual sketch #1. I love the individual sketches, you can't beat the value.
You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.
Next up is Pamela. You can find her here: http://reflectionsofmyartandsoul.com/blog, leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be draw on December 9th, so you have one week to leave a comment.
In case you get lost at any point, here is the list all the blogs:

Hello! I'm back with another challenge layout. This time I'm playing with the November 1st sketch over on the Stuck?! blog. Here is a look at the sketch.
And here is my take on it.
I loved this sketch and kept a lot of elements pretty close. Even kept the stars, but added a lot more and they of course are the tiny wood veneers from Studio Calico, one of my favorite embellishments ever.
I chose to challenge myself on this one and use letter stickers. I'm good about using my smaller alphabet stickers but usually use Thickers for my larger letters. To help my letters standout I outlined them with a thin, brown sharpie. I'm really happy with how it turned out and will be breaking in my larger letter sticker stash more often. Using the flat letter stickers I was worried that my layout would lack the dimension that I love, but popping up layers at different heights gave it all the lift it needed.

I did something big today, put my hat in the ring for a Design Team. Eeek! It is super scary to put yourself out there and I can't believe I actually took the plunge.
Stick It Down Design Team call. They are looking for Single Page, Double Page, Card and Project Life submissions. I'm excited to see more of what they will offer. If you been around here a while you will know that sketches are my thing and I can't wait to see theirs, I'm always looking for something new to add to my sketch collection.
If you like sketches you should take a look and consider sending off your submission.
Another layout for the Photo Arrangement Replay class. I can't get over how much I like this class and even though it's over I still have lots of sketches to use from it. If you are looking into taking a sketch class to get your creative mojo working take this one.
My niece last year, it's still hard to believe she's a teenager. This layout was a little challenging because she's at that age you don't want to really use cutesy papers, yet more grown up looking lines don't really work either. I ended up going with Bella Blvd.'s Sunshine and Happiness. There isn't a lot left to say because I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum. The papers and stamping along the top were enough, I didn't want a lot more to compete for the focus, which I wanted to be the photos.
I will admit that it isn't my most favorite layout ever, not all of them can be though. It's cute and a little quirky, just like my niece.

I recently played along at Scrap Our Stash for the first time. I'm so glad I did, I made the top 3!
Here the layout that they chose and the link to original blog post.
Thank you so very much to the team at Scrap Our Stash for the incredible honor of choosing my layout for your top 3.
Here is my week 4 layout for the Photo Arrangement Replay class. This has been a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.
This time I did change up my photos just a bit, I need one photo a bit bigger than the sketch allowed. That is one thing I love about sketches, you can follow it to the letter or change it to better fit your needs.
Sorry about my lighting, it has been raining and overcast all week, not the best situation for photographing layouts.
Not a lot to say about this one, for the most part I used one collection. I do want to mention the stamping because it features Memento's new Luxe inks. They are fabulous! You can see it stamps extremely well on Kraft cardstock, not something you can say of very many inks. Plus they cover more solid image stamps beautifully. The "Happy Thanksgiving" greeting on the side has some fine detail among a large amount of solid, a hard image for any ink and this one handled it well. I will be picking up the other colors for sure.
