Here is this week's Mid Week Mojo from Scrapbook Steals. They are currently on Daisy #6 and you have until Monday to enter. If you are interested in learning more or seeing the inspiration piece behind this sketch, please click here to be directed to the Scrapbook Steals blog!
This is the cluster that I started with and I knew right off the bat that I wanted that banner sticker here and I just layered around it. The flair was one that I made using a digi file from Gossamer Blue that I had had sitting in my stash for a while. Believe it or not, the hardest part about this cluster was choosing the enamel dots. I have literally dozens of packages of them and have zero reds that have that pink-ish tone to them, so I opted to use a soft pink that compliments the pink in the stripes and chevron papers.
So I know I cheated a bit and went my own route with this sketch but usually I spend so much time trying to make it follow the major elements of the sketch that I end up dedicating too much time to an aspect that I either don't find worth it or is frustrating to the point of me wanting to not finish the layout. That is why I opted for something that fit more within how I was feeling like scrapping while still holding onto the overall feel of the sketch. I hope you take the time to participate. The prize that I received for winning a couple of weeks ago was amazing. It must have weighed close to two pounds. It included a full collection pack from Authentique, some amazing vellum from Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper (the teal bokeh one and the gold doily one), a TON of assorted papers (including a bunch from the collection I used that week that I was SO PROUD to finally put a dent in so that really made me laugh) and several embellishments from Bo Bunny and Prima. I was blown away by the contents!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
