It's time for another awesome TPE challenge! And this one was a true challenge for me and I'll tell ya why in a minute......I'm pretty sure that any of ya'll that DT anywhere will be able to totally relate!!!
This week Ella the Elephant has chosen a sketch layout with a twist! She's s sneaky thang I tell ya!!! I love sketch challenges.....I think it is so cool to see how everyone interprets the sketch and how everyone puts their own twist on it to make it truly their own. And it's also really cool that a sketch can be used over and over again by turning it, flipping it, changing picture placement or size, and even the type of paper and embellies can make a huge difference. This week I am gonna show you exactly what I am talking about!!
Now I gotta add this disclaimer.....I know I said the color combo must be aqua, white and black......but there is a huge argument in my house as to what color this is.......LOL. I have awful eyesight and the hardest time with certain colors. So some of the boys say its aqua (those are the ones that know who does the cookin around here.....lol) and the others say its Teal or Turquiose. Either way it's cute and one of my fave LOs.......LOL. Just lettin you know that as long as you are in the same ballpark in the color combo I think you will be ok :) This is a digi page created with Jamie Dells "Boy Joy" and Misty Cato's "Mischief and Mayhem" Which, considering this is my youngest I thought was appropriate......LOL
Now for my boo boo........with everything going on I have been a bit absent minded lately. So when I went to check the DT blog to see what I needed to work with I just saw the sketch photo. Didn't click or read.....I am a lot like a man in that respect....."I can put it together......who needs instructions??????" So I didn't realize the color challenge was incorporated and I created this lil beauty.......you will see it is a LOT different from the one above but still inspired by the same sketch I promise :)
I was so proud of it!!! LOL. Now be honest....anyone ever make the boo boo of only half paying attention to your DT instructions or even the challenge rules???? Raise your hands!! You know you have!!! :)
It's really hard to see but there is a WHOLE lotta dimension going on here! I used papers from Basic Grey "June Bug" Bazzil Scalloped and embossed cardstock (embossed with swiss dots....again, it's really hard to see!!) My little license plate was a gift from Julie (hugs!!) and its by Karen Foster, American Crafts Thickers, Banner stickers and oval from Jenni Bowlin, faux stitching from Martha Stewart and I purposely goofed it up to make it look like it was unraveling. I made the little hat from Basic Grey paper and attached a pom pom and totally ripped off Imaginisce's Birthday bash line and made my OWN little birthday candle from more BG paper and a white string of yarn!!!
Cute, cute, cute!!! Thats Jesse on his very first birthday :) That's him in the first layout as well :)
So there ya go!!! 2 LOs same sketch....totally different result!
I "think" at least one of these 2 are eligible for the Design Dollies color challenge of Blue, Yellow with a white and black option.
The Birthday LO qualifies for Pratical Scrappers 7 things :5 papers, thickers, Banner Stickers, License plate, photo, pom pom and candle
I knew I'd fit that boo in someplace or other.......LOL
Have a great day!! I am off to rest up and see if my headache will totally go away now!!
