Do I look like I want my picture taken?

Short and sweet: I managed to squeeze in some scrappy time today. I created this layout using the awesome November sketch from Artful Delight

Thanks for stopping by. :) Have a great weekend!

Cutie Pie- CMS #50

Wow- Color Me Scrappy is hosting their 50th challenge. How cool is that?! Congratulations Lisa and Pam on 50 amazing challenges!

Here is my take on Challenge 50:

here is the color palette:

the twist is to use texture on your layout. I added several areas on my layout. Of course "my" traditional distressing and stitching- i don't do many layouts without these basics. ;) To create the hearts I added gesso on top of a stencil and then added a bit of mist for a pop of color. The flowers each have their own texture as well. 

Head on over to the blog to check out the gorgeous work by the design team, as well as to upload your take on this challenge. The Memory Nest is the sponsor and will be providing the winner with a $10 gc to the store.

Here is my layout for challenge #49 on the Color Me Scrappy blog. The colors are so pretty! I wanted to keep the layout as light as I could although I used a lot of black on this. Sorry about the awful image.

here is the beautiful color palette! I just want to be wherever this photo was taken. lol 

This challenge is also the sketch challenge for the month and here is the wonderful sketch that Lisa created:
