April SOS Sketch Plus Challenge - "Adventure"

It is time for April's Scrap Our Stash "Pick Your Side" Sketch Challenge!  
Along with using one of the sketches below for your inspiration 
- you must ALSO include Buttons, Brads or Enamel Dots.
I selected the Sketch on the RIGHT and just flipped some of the elements around a bit.  I used photos from our day trip to Bath, when we were in England last October.  I had so much fun creating the circle using Brads and a few other embellishments that I've had in my "Stash" forever!  I am going to use this idea again, for sure!

Here is my layout for your inspiration:
I used the AWESOME Kaisercraft "Let's Go!" Collection that I got from My Little Scrapbook Store!  LOVE the colors and patterns in this collection!
Here are some close ups for you-
I first drew a circle and after digging through my stash - started adding brads along the pencil line - along with some wooden hearts and that big glass element that I thought was pretty neat!

I love to add my journaling by creating a pocket behind one of the photos with 3M foam tape, and tucking a journaling tag behind it.
Above you can see where it is tucked in, and below is the front and back of the tag.

((YIKES - I just realized I spelled famous wrong!! - I'll have to go back and fix that! LOL!))
 Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I've inspired you to dig into your Stash and play along with us at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!
I can't wait to see what you create!

April SOS Saturday Cartoon and Sketch "CareBear" Challenge "#friends"

This months Saturday Cartoon / Sketch Challenge from the Scrap Our Stash Blog gives you LOTS of options!
You get to choose the Color and Symbol of the CareBear of your choice and include that color and an embellishment or patterned with the symbol on the bear's chest!  

I chose the PINK "Love-a-Lot" Bear, who's symbol is 2 Hearts!
I picked a photo of a Girl's Day Out in NYC to see the Mickey Exhibit - and kept the color palette to PINK, Black and White!

We are all BIG Mickey and Disney fans and had so much FUN!

Here are some close ups for you!

I used 2 + hearts 

The base page just had a bunch of plan intersecting circles and I doodled on all of them to match the doodling on the patterned paper I used.

I hope I've inspired you to play along with us this month at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!  
Give it a try - you'll have a blast!
