A Sketch a Day helps you scrap rest & play ;)

this weeks challenge is pretty straightforward, each day i'm going to upload a sketch and i want you to scrap a page using the sketch.

For me, sketches are an incredible inspiration. There are so many different ways to use one. You can look at one and let the photo placement inspire you or maybe the placement of the embellishments. Sometimes I take a sketch exactly for what it is, and make my page identical to it's layout. Always keep in mind that you can flip sketches on their side or upside down, whatever your heart desires.

Rules:

1) scrap a page using the daily sketch as an inspiration
2) upload the page to the gallery and place the image or link in this thread
3) you can do each sketch daily or just one day....its up to you
4) challenge ends Sunday 12th July

so here is sketch one

As you can see, Jalen is happy in front of the camera. They say a picture tells a thousand words, the expressions on a childs face must tell a million.

Here is mine for today. My first hand-sewn quilt was a gift for my daughter. Emily choose the colors and fabrics and waited several months for me to finish. We were BOTH very happy to have it finished. I used a terrific kit called Pinkalicious, by Kristi Cakebread, that I found in the SBM store.

day 3 is Titled Aussie Rules Football. My eldest son was an excellent footballer, retired now, but was a 215 senior game veteran, life member of local football club, League Best & Fairest winner and Club Best & Fairest winner, as well as a Gippsland all star member in season 1996 and several other awards. I am very proud of his achievements, he inspired those around him on the field and off. Probably the biggest compliment he was given was when players were asked what footballer they would nominate as their hero, and many of his team mates nominated him.
Day 4 is of grandson Jenn, who went berry picking at local berry farm day before Xmas for fresh berries for Xmas morning pancakes. He loved it, one for Jenn, one for the bucket.... lol

Tackettup, your page is awesome! I turned mine sideways because I thought it worked better with my big photo. I used some SBM papers and the embies came from a kit called "I'm this many!", by Amy Stoffel at Scrap Orchard. The photo strip came from Fiona Storey - thanks, Fiona! I believe the torn shape came from the freebie forums. If you recognize it as yours, please let me know. This has been a fun challenge so far.

Here is my day 5. Still working on day 4. Fiona I am so glad you gave us this template. I googled Jen Caputo and she has a great tutorial on how to use PSD templates in Photoshop. I have tried everything and she finally broke it down step by step and included a step that nobody ever gave and it worked. I am so excited that I know how to do it now. YAY!!

I see your sketch here, I know the challenge is over but I was wondering if you can take a template like that and make things from it in Scrapbook Max or you have PSE or PSP or something like that?

Thanks,
