04/08/13 - "Dog Pile" A Challenge Layout

Good Monday Morning!
Just stopping in really quick to share a  layout I created for the "Creative Scrappers" blog.
I created my layout using their latest sketch.
Here is the sketch:
And here is my interpretation of it: 
"Dog Pile"
I was drawn to the sketch because of the circles; I just love circles on a layout! I use them a lot!!!!
And it is a 1 picture sketch so it was perfect for the picture I took of my kids messing around this weekend. Yup, that's my daughter crushing, ::ahem::, sitting on my son, LOL!
I took the pic w/ my phone and filtered it w/ Instagram. 
I love the old-time feel of the pic and used muted colors to carry over that feeling to the rest of the layout.
Incidentally, the sketch I used is also a challenge going on at another blog: "Use Your Stuff".  Since I used a lot of old goodies on here, the only new product is the BG paper, I decided to enter my layout in their challenge as well.
So although I didn't mean to, I actually completed 2 challenges w/ this layout.
Happy accident!
Love those!


  1. I love love love this!! LOVING the colors and those circles!!!

  2. You do use circles frequently! I hadn't noticed until you just pointed it out. I almost never do - only if I'm following a sketch and HAVE to. Not because I don't like them, but because they're a pain to cut. :)

  3. great take on the sketch!! I love the photo, too.
    Thanks for playing along this week on the Use Your Stuff challenge.


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
