Sketch Challenge entry

Hello again
So it seems that I am the reigning champion of Sketch Challenges at Discover Scrapbooking. I won the Feb/March Challenge with the layout I did of me in my bridal gown. I was totally shocked and so happy!!

So now I am working on my April submittion. I was told by the other ladies at the crop night last friday, that I was not allowed to enter this month, so they could win one! Maybe I'll still do it tho.... hehe

My "Circle of Friends" is going well at the moment. I am actually behind 1 month, but through no fault of my own as I have not received the album yet, but I have kept up to date by getting other albums early to do and not fall incredibly behind.

I'll be helping Robyn out at the shop again on Saturday. I love going down there and helping her, its not at all like work, more like helping people discover their creative side! I might take something to work on while I'm down there though... maybe my April sketch challenge!!

Anyway.. I should add some pics of what I have been upto... so here goes
Materials Used: Paper - I seriously can't remember what paper this is!! Bazzill Cardstock; Journalling pen
I did a class at Stamp Art Studio, it was like a beginners class to get me on the right track of what Scrapbooking is all about. This was my efforts after my second class. I was pretty impressed with myself!!
Materials used: Basic Grey Origins collection paper and brads; Bazzill Cardstock, paper flowers, loose weave ribbon, twine, journalling pen.
This is the page I completed in my third class at Stamp Art Studio. Thanks Jenny for helping me learn so much.
Materials used: Paper - (I was given this paper by Kim, so I dont even know what it is!), Bazzill Carstock; Embellishments - paper flowers, brad, kindyglitz.
This paper was already heavily embellished, there was not alot I had to do. I matted my photo with pink Bazzill and also cut my letters on my Cricut with the same Bazzill. I copied the quote at the top from some rub ons that I have (kaiser craft).
Materials: Paper - Creative Imaginations, DCWV, cardstock; Embellishments - kaiser stamp, StazOn ink.
We always refer to Mum's partner, Pete, as "Pirate Pete", goodness knows why! This picture was taken on his birthday where they dressed him up as a Pirate with parrot on his shoulder and everything!
I used a sheet music embossing folder with my Cuttlebug to make the "sheet music" behind the photo. I matted the photo with red cardstock, which I also used to cut the title on my Cricut.
Well I guess that is all for now.
Happy crafting!
