How Sweet It Is. . . .

We have a sweet sketch for you this week over at The Beary Scrap Challenge Blog and I have absolutely loved seeing the gorgeous cards my fellow DTs Patricia and Debbie have made with it so far. But I have to admit, it was a challenge for me! I really wanted to make this into a two page layout as I haven't posted one for awhile and it took a bit of thinking and rearranging to adapt it to my sweet layout.

Here is our original sketch, done by the fabulous Kimm:

Here you can see most elements of the original sketch in my layout-- I just love the triangles, big and small, across each side:

Notice how instead of centering it on one page, I stretched the sketch across my two 12 x 12 pages and then here you can see how I expanded it a little further to include more photos:

I used the Alphabet Soup Paper Girls line and the colors were perfect for my pictures! The oranges and pinks precisely matched this fun little restaurant we went to in Las Vegas where everything is bright orange and hot pink, and the ice cream sundaes cost $15 but are huge and worth every penny!

Whether your take is a card or a layout, we can't wait to see what you dream up with this sketch! Make sure to enter it in our current challenge for your chance to win a Beary Scrap store voucher.
