Favorite Color: Shades of Teal because it reminds me of the ocean.
My craft supply 'must have': Lately, my 'must have' items are diecuts. I love the packages of matching diecuts which go along with the theme of the line.
I mostly create: 12x12 layouts for my grandkids and also of our vacations. We love traveling and I love reliving the moments by scrapping the photos.
Guilty pleasure: Chocolate! I don't have it very often these days, but I enjoy it when I do.
BIO: I married my high school sweetheart and we'll be celebrating 38 years in July. We have 3 adult kids and 9 adorable grandkids from 1 to 15 years old. They are just the light of my life and I adore scrapping about them.
Happy first few days of Spring! We're excited for the higher temps and all of the young tulips popping up everywhere. Now...for our latest snowfall to melt away... Many families with school aged children have a bit of a Spring Break coming up. We hope you find time to make new family memories, relax and work on something crafty! Here's this week's paper crafting sketch challenge inspiration:
Nancy says, 'This
layout is of my youngest son and his obsession with trying different
flavors of soda. For your layout I want to see pictures with lots of
flavors, like donuts or cakes or coffees or candy bars or ice cream

says, 'Don't moan too much! I want to have you think out of the box
of your normal papercrafting and upcycle something. My usual
go-to-item to recycle is cardboard drink containers. Remember my
son's soda obsession? Well- I let him go in if he remembers to give
me the cardboard container when finished. I have used these mainly
for baby shower gifts filled with lotion and shampoo and powder, etc.
But you could use them for desk organizers or birthday gifts or
plasticware organizers,etc. Alter something to use for EASTER!'
You need to recycle some type of box! (shoebox, drink container,
cigar box, cardboard tube, etc.)
Hopefully you were able to get in on our Sketch Challenge (whether or not you submitted your finished project to our Gallery). Remember, you can always save the sketches for future reference when your creativity needs a little kick start! Here was the design for our Sketch Challenge #112:
As usual, there were so many inspiring submissions! We're happy our challenge winners are randomly selected. Hand picking a winner from the scrapbooking and paper crafting projects entered would just be too hard! With that being said, we'd like to congratulate user SWEETSOUR for being this week's winner! Here's the finished project:
What an adorable banner and the baby bib embellishment is crazy cute! We hope all of our submitters enjoyed the challenge and the bonus A Cherry On Top POINTS. Look for another ACOT Sketch Challenge, soon - or check out our Paper CraftingContests & Challenges thread on our community Message Board.
