island in the SUN {DT work for scrapbook challenges}

hello scrappy friends!

as you know the 2nd annual SIZZLIN' SUMMER of SKETCHES is on at SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGES. you will have 20 extra sketches to complete during the month of august and there are some wonderful prizes to be won of course!

here is my take on sketch #6:

"island in the SUN"





and here is the sketch i based my layout on:


i flipped the sketch to be able to use vertical pictures. they are from few years ago when we were in the dominican republic for our christmas holiday. ELISE was so happy just to run in the sun and i couldn't stop myself taking pictures of her:-)

i used FANCY PANTS "rusted sun" collection and a lot of different stamps {i'm really addicted to stamping lately:-)}.

i colored my background with PANPASTELS and then i stamped on it. i used MARTHA STEWART "daisy fan" deep edge punch to create the green border.


instead of journaling spots i added hidden tags behind the pictures. i used DONNA DOWNEY rubber stamps for my sentiment on this tag:


and TIM HOLTZ "postcards" stamp set on this one: 


i left one tag blank for when i fill like writing a personal note to my sweet little ELISE;


i used the crafter's workshop "mini circle explosion" doodling template and modeling paste to create the pattern on the blue pattern paper.

for the title i used TIM HOLTZ "alphabetical" cutting die and brown cardstock.


i coloured the PRIMA resistant canvas with glimmer mist and added the cloud and the rain drops on top of it. i used FLOURISH WITH A BLING "up in the sky" embellishment set. 


i hope you enjoyed today's post!

and i can't wait to see your creations in the SC gallery!


hugs 'n smiles,
Emmy
