Creative Accents June Challenge

Hello Blogland! Can you believe it’s already June?!?! This year is going by sooooo fast it’s utter insanity! lol Well, I’m sure all you challenge junkies know what the beginning of the month means though….It’s time for our new challenge!! And this month it’s another fabulous sketch from our very own Cheri!! So all you have to do is create a card or layout based on this sketch, oh and since Father’s Day is coming up, your take on the sketch should be kinda masculine! So you have until the end of the month to create something with this awesome sketch, and link it up here and one random winner will be chosen :)



CA June Challenge



So, seeing as how I have 3 boys, a male dog, and a husband that I live with, doing a masculine layout was not hard for me at all! lol I think there’s a daily overdose of testosterone at my house! The only thing I had a hard time with was deciding which of my boys I wanted to scrap about. Now I usually scrap about my little boys, but I found this pic of my hubby, and I knew that was the one for this sketch!

The title is from a song by Chantal Kreviazuk. It was the song we walked down the isle to when we got married almost 7 years ago! aaaawwww!! how sappy am I?! lol



here’s some close ups: and I just have to mention one thing…holy blue eyes! Aren’t they beautiful?! That’s definitely where my boys get their amazing eyes from!

Aren’t these buttons great?! I got em at a garage sale last weekend…a couple jars of antique buttons…there are some pretty great finds in those jars and I couldn’t wait to use some on my next layout!

I’m also going to enter this into the challenge at Scrapbooker's Anonymous. This month they want you to use your 6x6 paper packs. Another great challenge for me because just like last month’s use your stamps challenge, I love to buy those paper packs, but hardly use them! I think I’m starting to see a trend…I just love to buy all those purdy scrap supplies! I’m a little bit of an addict…but come on…aren’t we all?!



anyway, here’s the deets of my layout: Patterned Paper: cosmo cricket, my mind’s eye, Fancy Pants, and Crate Paper. Stickers: Basic Grey, Die Cutting Machine: Vagabond and Silhouette. Die: Quickutz (Diesel Font), Inks: Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap), Chipboard alphabet (unknown), Glimmer Mist, Paint: Claudine Hellmuth Studio, Buttons: cool antique garage sale buttons hehe



Well, thanks for stopping by my blog! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with for this sketch! Don’t forget to link it up at Creative Accents Challenges by the end of the month for your chance to win some goodies!!



Have a good day!
