Sketch-y Friday

Hi there!

We have a new sketch to share today....

Can I tell you a secret ... is it okay to admit that I created this sketch months ago, that my style has changed a lot since then, that this sketch stumped even me!

But since it was my turn to create a sample, I gave it my all.  Sometimes when I am not feeling crafty or am too tired to pull out crafty stuff I play with my Silhouette software.  That's exactly what I did here.  First I made a film strip cut file, because I had been wanting to for a while.  I am not gonna lie, it took a little while to create, but I love making my own files so it was fun, too.  Then I started laying elements down, sort of like a mock up, combining cut files I have purchased with ones that I have made, keeping to the layout of the sketch.  This is a screen shot of what I was working on.

Then I set to, cutting out the elements and creating my layout......

..... um yeah, I kind of like how this turned out!

It is clean and crisp, but still has some fun factor.  Have I told you how much I love this machine???  Well, I love the software just as much!

Now it's your turn!  Play along and share it with us!

Here is a run down of the rules.  We are offering a little prize to one lucky scrapper that participates in at least 2 of this month's 4 sketches.  Just link up your creations at the bottom of each Sketch-y Friday post, all qualifying scrappers will be entered into a random draw for a prize.  Only one entry per sketch please.  You have until Tuesday October 1st at midnight to participate in any of September's sketch challenges, each linkup tool will remain open until that date!  But remember, you must play along with 2 different sketches for a chance to win!  (International participants may be required to pay some shipping fees. )

Would you like to be one of our sketch layout designers?  Each month we are offering one lucky participant the opportunity to create the reveal sample for one of our sketches!  So if you are interested in being considered, play along with at least two sketches and while you are linking up your creations add "GDT" after your name.  The only stipulation is that you must have a blog.

Thanks again to all of our participants, keep joining us and linking up as we love seeing what you create!

Now getting creating!   And thanks for visiting!
