Challenges Rock!!

If you know me, you know that I love to use challenges and sketches to get me going! There are SO many awesome challenge/sketch sites out there. Just use them and you will be hooked....just like me! Here are a few layouts I did this week using either a sketch or a challenge.

Scrap Whispers offers a new challenge each week. This week's challenge is none other than one of the most famous TV shows, The Brady Bunch. You have got to go and check out the DT's work. There were so many great interpretations. I used the 9 square grid like you see during the open credits. I also went to Dafont.com to download the "Brady Bunch" font. I love how this helped put so many photos on one layout!The papers I used here are Chatterbox and so are the embellishments. I printed the words on Bazzill and then cut them out. I outlined the letters with the white Uniball pen.

Julie Bonner has been doing the 52 Sketches site for a while, but she did a total make-over and has drawn many newcomers to her site, including me! Last week, she posted Sketch #1. Yesterday she posted the Second Sketch...be sure to go check it out. I loved the way this layout turned out for me. I was struggling with it but it just came together and has quickly climbed its way up to the top of my favorites list. The papers are Dream Street and came out of the Dixie Pieces April 2008 kit.

Yes, that last layout is great. I bet it looks even better in person.

Wow, Telah! I love this layout, particularly the way you worked the ribbon. And I love these color combinations -- in fact, I love just about anything with teal right now.
