Creative Scrappers - Sketch 250!

Sort of happy and sort of sad to be here today...posting sketch #250 for Creative Scrappers!  This will be the last sketch for a little while, so that the fabulous Kristine Davidson can take a much deserved break!!!  She's taking a little vacation after 5 years of providing us with unlimited inspiration!  But don't fear...Creative Scrappers isn't going fact, in case you haven't heard, there's a new sketch book coming out this month, Creating With Sketches Volume 2!!  I'm happy to say I'll be a part of it!  The last sketch book went like wildfire, so be sure to pre-order your copy today!  You can do that here.

Ok, enough moping on my part...Sketch 250 was a fabulous one... brought to us by Kristine.  Take a peek:

And here's my take on her sketch using Authentique's gorgeous Renew Collection:

This picture was taken in Key West a couple of years ago.  We were at the southernmost point in the Continental United States....only 90 miles to Cuba!  My husband is thrilled with me, as you can see from his expression...I made him walk a bit in the heat, then stand in line to get the picture...we do what we have to do for the shot, right??  Such a great trip, can't wait to go back!  I did change up the sketch a little....first I rotated the sketch left to accomodate my portrait oriented picture.  I also strayed from the "square" design a little,,, but kept with the "color blocking" affect.

I played with my Silhouette again...I really do love that machine....cutting the clouds and sun, and also cut some fun words from one of the blocks...and kept the negative space for my design.

Authentique's Renew collection comes with some great stickers and embellies....and I made sure to use the for my LO!  Well that's all for today...don't forget to order your Creating With Sketches Volume'll be so glad you did!  I'd also like to wish Kristine a wonderful and relaxing've done such a FABULOUS job with the Creative Scrappers Blog and I'm so happy to be part of it now and hopefully in the future!!  Love to all my co-designers...I'm constantly inspired by all of you and look forward to working with you on other endeavors!!!
