Card sketch #58

The year is moving by SOOO fast, I can't believe we are at the end of September already!  I am really ready for Fall but it is still not showing itself here in Texas....but hopefully soon!  Here is my last sketch of the month at Sketch N Scrap:

And here is my take on the sketch:

Supplies Used: Card stock: Stampin Up; Patterned Paper: American Crafts; bird sticker: Echo Park;
Bling: KaiserCrafts; sticker letters: Scenic Route; die cut: Starburst by Stampin' Up.
I had so much fun with this card that I made to say hello to a friend!  I think it was well received too!  I hope you will find time to play along with any of our five sketches this month, there is still lots of time- you have until September 30th at 7 pm CST to link up your creations!!!  Make sure and stop by Sketch N Scrap to see what the other DT members did with this fun sketch!!  Happy crafting!

Twistback Thursday sketch for September!

It's time for Sketch N Scrap's Twistback Thursday challenge for September!!!  It's my turn to host the challenge this month and I picked this fabulous sketch by Kelly:

For this month's twist I decided to go with a back to school theme in honor of the start of my son's Senior year!  The twist for this month is to use items on your layout that start with each letter of the word APPLE!!!  So you must use one thing that starts with an "A", two things starting with a "P", one thing starting with an "L" and one thing starting with an "E" on your layout. You can use more things but you must at a minimum use one thing for each letter of the word "APPLE".  Here is what I came up with:
Supplies Used: Patterned Paper: Authentique, Simple Stories, Scenic Route, Bella Blvd, & Ki Memories (lined); Flair: Scraptastic, Die cuts: Simple Stories; punch: Stampin Up; letter stickers: Paper Trunk & American Crafts; enamel dots: Queen & Co and Recollections; sticker: Bella Blvd.
For my items to represent each letter in the word APPLE I used: A- Authentique (striped paper), P- Pumpkin die cut, P- punch (star)/polka dots, L- letter stickers/lined paper, E- Enamel dots.   I loved these photos of my nephew as a train engineer from last Halloween and wanted to get them scrapper before this Halloween, it is so fun to look back and see what they were into each year as represented by their costumes!  I hope you will play along with us at Sketch N Scrap this month, just remember you must use the sketch PLUS the TWIST for this challenge!  You have until September 30th at 7 pm CST to play along!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Make sure and check out all the wonderfully creative and fun layouts the DT made with this sketch too!  Happy crafting!
