Clean & Simple Challenge Take Two

Happy Sunday! It's time for the second Clean & Simple Scrapbook Challenge! I had so much fun with last weeks and have really enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful creations! Please know that although the prize has already been given away you can still play along.

Now on to this weeks challenge. Last week my sweet friend AJ and I worked with one of my card sketches for Unity's hip hop. You can see AJ's sample here and mine here. Take a look at the sketch...

I love using sketches when I am 'stuck' on a project. With scrapbook sketches, however, I am usually stumped as it's so hard to find a sketch that is CAS. What's so great about ALL sketches is that no matter what they were created for you can use them for anything!
This week we are taking this card sketch and we are going to use it for a layout. There are NO size requirements for your layout as it works with any size. I have two samples for you today. The first is an 8 1/2 X 11 layout.....

For this one I opted to use the text box as a space for the title of the page. The picture is my middle son, Carter during a trip to the park. I just LOVE this photo of him!

Now I am taking the same sketch and using it for a 12X12 layout.....

This time I opted to journal in the where the text box it. I had to explain a bit about the 'Budder & Chachies'. ;) Hayden loves his peanut butter and it's usually all over his face! He never eats it on his crackers though....he uses a spoon! ;) And he's always running around asking for a 'chachie' which is cracker in Hayden speak. ;)

What are you playing for this week? How about some little goodies to help your future layouts? Take a look.....


There's some PTI designer paper, summer chipboard pieces, a chipboard alpha, and some buttons. If you get the chance to play, please remember to upload your creations to SCS using the keyword CASSB02....and don't forget to upload and link your cards in the comment section of this post so that you can be entered in the drawing by Friday, April 3rd. I will pick a winner and post that winner Saturday, April 4th.

Want to see another amazing sample? Head over to AJ's blog to see what beauty she has created with this sketch!

Thank you so much for playing last week! I hope you all get the chance to play again this week!

Have a wonderful day! :)

I LOVE your pages! The one with the Giggle Grove birdie and the tree with only a couple of branches colored is my ultimate favorite! It's PERFECT and has just the right touches!
