Guesting The Nook

Happy Monday friends.  I hope that the weekend was a great one for you where every you may call home.

I have a Nook layout to share with you today.  I may not have gotten a permanent DT spot at My Scrapbook Nook, but at the very least I have a little guest spot there - yay!  I mentioned on Friday that I won the sketch challenge last month, which resulted in my filling the role of Guest DT for this month's sketch.

Heather was the lucky Nook member chosen to have her layout transformed into a sketch this month. Here is her layout:
 And here is the sketch DT member Patricia created based off of the layout.
I wanted to incorporate the circles, but just couldn't make it work with the photo that I had chosen to work with.  Sometimes, I'm about the design first and everything else is made to be incorporated into that.  Other times I allow the photos to drive the design process.  With that I chose to keep the photos and journaling spot rectangular.  I also modified the embellishments from circles to starts.  Here is what I ended up with.
Using My Scrapbook Nook February kit featuring October Afternoon
The photo is of Théa and her Tap Small Group the day they competed at CNDC.  How cute are those costumes?  Jody put together a fun little dance for them.  It challenged their skills, but kept them totally engaged, and leading their audience on a fun little journey with them. 

It was fun to join the DT this month, I sure hope the opportunity presents itself again sometime soon.  In the meantime, how about you come and visit us over there, and try your hand at the sketch.  I'd love to have you :)

That's it for me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love your take on the sketch and challenge, Sherri! I love the amount of white space and the pretty details on your layout, like the bended papers strip. Fabolous color choice too.

And it's an honour to have you as a GD at the Nook :-)
