Sketch Challenge

Sketches make scrapbooking a little easier sometimes. I stumbled across this one and really liked the layout. I was also inspired to take photos of my tree and the ornaments. On the Two Scrapbook Friends blog we put out a challenge and the deadline was yesterday.

This was the sketch:

This was my take on it! I love how it turned out. I did it yesterday, finishing at about 4pm. Yes, I know......I left it until the last possible minute. I have said it before, I think I work best under pressure. Most of the products are from My Little Yellow Bicycle. I used the decorative pattern papers as the backdrop of my layout and embellished with the ornament paper and bling. The title is from the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge and the tree is from the Christmas Solutions Cricut cartridge. I really love the tree.

Here is my detail shot of the tree. I shadowed it with a darker green cardstock and added the bling as the ornaments.

These ornaments I cut out from the pattern paper. They are already foiled so I didn't have to do much to make them look pretty.

I added a touch of bling to the title to tie it into the page.
