Ok so sometime I can be very bad at following a sketch. LOL this is fine, when they are used for inspiration, but when your trying to enter a challenge. Not so Good when your layout looks nothing like the sketch. LOL

SO here is my Layout . This is my youngest and his BFF at School this year. The Teacher gave him this picture on the last day of school and it had been floating around the house. So when I discovered it a little crumpled this morning, I decided to Scrap it before it got damaged. Shh don't tell him. LOL

Here is the Sketch that my layout was suppose to look like. I know it has tiny similarities but not sure if i pulled this one off enough to actually enter it into the challenge. But At least it got me inspired and I got a layout completed. YEAH! My Bother Inspiration was the RWB challenge at Funtoolas I talked about them yesterday. The layouts being put out over there are amazing. And looks like they have some really awesome kits. I need to use more stash, So I can have some cash to go spend. :). July Sketch Challenge.

So while browsing some blogs I came across this new Forum/Site Funtoolas and these Ladies have some Gorgeous Layouts and some pretty cool challenges. Mostly I do challenges on Blogs when I do them. But I had to jump in here as I was so inspired. One of the Challenges was to Bling it out. Some of the ladies had already entered layouts which I was happy to see, as they made me look outside the box. It was so much fun to add bling and glitter to this Pumpkin Path/Fall Layout. Usually I don't add much to my boys layouts. But I really stretched myself, and pulled out the first set of photos I had. And said your scrapping these make it work. And I am so glad I did. I Luv how this Layout Came out.I had already printed the Frosted Design Sketch for the Week, So I incorporated that into the Layout.
