March Sketch Challenge

Well, it's that time of month again ... time for the monthly sketch challenge issued by The Scrapping Stamper. Shannon White designs her own sketches each month and sends them out to her sketch team to see what we can come up with. Here is the sketch for this month:

This one was so much fun to play with and was super easy to follow. Sometimes I use sketches that are just too busy and have way too much stuff going on that it makes it very difficult to decipher. I end up getting frustrated and tossing out the whole project and starting over. Here's my take on her sketch this month:

Want the details behind this layout? It's pretty simple ... I used Bazzill Chocolate Chip as my base and part of the picture mat. I used Coredination cardstock for the yellow and the orangish part of the picture mat. The title was from an old stack of stickers (my scrappy friends will be shocked that I actually used a sticker but I just thought this one fit so perfectly for this layout!). The bling at the top of the photo is by Bazzill as well and the bling paw print is by The Paper Studio. Last but not least is the patterned paper which is part of new BasicGrey Max & Whiskers collection that I purchased at Scrapnesia. This has quickly become my new favorite line of paper for the billion dog photos I have.

So, that's about all for this time around. Shannon also created a super cute blog badge but I can't figure out how to get it on my blog LOL. I just can't seem to learn blogger very well no matter how many tutorials I read :).

Hope you enjoy my layout! Happy scrapping :)!!
