Hi everyone! Are you ready for another Sketch Challenge? Tomorrow is the FIRST official day of Summer (ok everyone, get up from your computer screen and do a little happy dance with me) ...so we asked Biker Chick Liz Qualman to do a little Sweet Summertime Sketch Challenge for you!
Here's Liz to introduce her sketch!
Summer in the Rocky Mountains can be a little unpredictable, especially with the weather, but that does not stop my family from getting out and having a good time. Last summer we went boating on Lake Dillon, which has an altitude of about 9,000 feet. You can imagine it can be a little chilly, however, these gorgeous Sweet Summertime papers still capture the feeling of this exciting summer day and may even cast a bit of a warmer glow upon it.
The Chipboard Shapes with glitter accents in this collection add just the right amount of summer fun and include a tiny bit of glitter to make them pop off the page. I added a Fresh Verse sticker to this cute chipboard cloud to add another sentiment about our wonderful day.
I love the combination of the Sweet Summertime chipboard kite with the journaling card. The tail of the kite winds around the journaling card and photo to tie them together beautifully.
The journaling cards in this collection are not just for writing. I used the beautiful shape and color on this one to matte the wallet sized photo so it would stand out just a bit more from the other two photos and an additional sentiment to my title, "Happy Summer."
Another amazing layout. Thanks Liz! And if you love sketches don't forget to check out Liz's Blog for more simply fabulous sketches!
