February sketches - Scrapbook Supplies Online

Hi! If you have come to take part in:

click HERE.

I promised yesterday I would take pics of my projects as soon as the sun started to shine, and here they are. I like the card picture better than the one I took last night because it shows the card's real colours. I'm not very happy with the layout pics. Every once in a while I have a photography crisis with layouts and cards, and then things seem to get better, so I'm just waiting for this one to pass and for me to feel better about the pictures I take of my projects!!!

I got the sketches for the card and layout on Tuesday night. On that day, my wonderful grandfather turned 90. I rarely miss home as I keep in touch with the people I love and I accept that moving, changing, and being away from home is part of the lifestyle we've chosen, but I really wished I could have been home to give my grandpa a big hug on that night. So when I got the sketch, I looked at the papers on my rack and saw the empty chairs, and I immediately knew what I wanted to do! I am really happy with how the grey and yellow work in this card.

I promise you this layout looks much better in real life!!! These are pictures of my daughter in Stockholm chasing some "ducks". They were not actually ducks, as you can see in the pictures, but that is what they were for her, and she loved it. I thought this Amy Tangerine paper was perfect for the sketch:

However, there was a problem.... the heart was not pointing the right way for my layout! I just cut it, sewed a circle of patterned paper on top of the hole, and then re-placed the heart and camera on top!
Instead of the butterflies in the sketch I used hearts, and I remembered I had a little duck left from some October Afternoon patterned paper, and it was the perfect touch for this page!

And remember, one random winner will be picked from among all the people who post their projects made using these sketches, and will get a 25$ GC to spend in the shop! You can post your layouts and cards by going to the GALLERY, registering, and uploading to this month's challenge folder. Hope you are the lucky winner!

Your card looks fabulous. I never would have thought of putting grey w/ yellow. You rocked it. Your layout is wonderful too. I love how you use bright colors in most of your layouts. You also always have the best embellishments :)
