Sketch Challenge with October Afternoon

Last Thursday, October Afternoon had a sketch challenge on their blog that I was actually able to complete! Two challenges in one month so far is pretty good for me these days!
Here is the sketch by Wilna Furstenberg...

And here is my take. I used Studio Calico mist to create a strip down the center to divide my layout into three's and follow the sketch design. But I decided to work at an angle instead of straight down. And I tried to use as much October Afternoon product as I could since it was their challenge. So patterned paper, label and word stickers, and the pink letter stickers are October Afternoon. The "welcome" title sticker is from American Crafts. Not quite sure where I got the manilla tag from, but it has been in my scrap collection for a while.
Going to try and get another challenge done this week. I'm hoping to do one a week this summer. But we'll see how that goes! :)

  9. Love your take on the sketch! A challenge a week is a good goal, especially if you have more time in the summer to scrap, like I do.
