SEM Sketch Challenge

Lisa is up with a Sketch Challenge over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles today.  It's a great sketch, so hopefully you'll have a chance to play along.  We've also switched things up a bit over there, where now you'll have two chances a month at the RAK up for grabs.  One will be with the month long challenge, and the second will be with the mid-month sketch/technique challenge.  You could double your chances of winning just like that.  Here's the layout I created for the challenge.

A Christmas Community celebration at the girls' school

Want to know something funny?  I had four photos for this layout, but couldn't make them work with the sketch.  I decided the best solution would be for me to put them in a hidden pocket so that they could stay with the others and still be seen.  That tab at the top is actually a long hidden pocket.  i added an extra piece of patterned paper and glued the photos onto it.  After I got all the paper down I decided they needed some stitching around the edges for definition.  Because the piece with the photos on it is angled, but the piece of paper in the hidded pocket isn't I ended up accidentally stitching right through the hidden pictures, actually adhering them to the layout completely.  There was no way to fix the problem without ripping the entire layout apart and starting from scratch.  So there will forever be 2 hidden photos on this layout. Hope that gave you a good laugh on this Monday morning.

Be sure to pop over to Scrapping Everyday Miracles to check out Lisa's sketch, and the fun technique she has for you to try.  You can check out this month's sponsor and the prize up for grabs here.

Happy Monday friends,
