February Sketch Challenge at Little Yellow Bicycle

 
Please join us for another sketch challenge at Little Yellow Bicycle.   We would love to see what you can do with the sketch!  Turn it on its side, flip it over or add embellishments in unique places.  The sky is the limit on how creative you can be.... This month is all about the brand new Twig Collection - which I have to say is one of my very favorites.  All you have to do is create a page based on this sketch with the new Twig Collection or any other LYB collection and link it to the facebook page or email it to contest@mylyb.com by February 28th. 

This was such a fun page to create.  I love the earthy colors of he Twig collection.  My family spends a lot of time playing outside and the blues, browns and greens are a wonderful palette to capture these beautiful moments, especially for these photos of my daughter lying in the grass.
The loose journaling cards are beautifully detailed and perfect for capturing your thoughts.  I used the prompts on the card to respond about my daughter and I really appreciate how the jouranling cards encourage you to use your own handwriting.  Then, I dressed it up with a Flower Button Dot and a Glittered Chipboard Leaf.
I just adore the Dimensional Stickers with Glitter Accents, because the butterflies are absolutely gorgeous and add so much movement and texture to a project.  I simply inked the edges and added some Jewel Stickers for the body.  The Mini Banners also add just the right amount of fun to a page and I love how they are already pop-dotted and ready to go.
Twine seems to be the perfect compliment to the Twig collection.  I wrapped some around my photos a few times and used one of the Chipboard Buttons as a clasp. Isn't it adorable how the design of the buttons are the growth rings from a tree?
You can find Twig at your local scrapbook store or online at Scrapbook.com or A Cherry On Top.  Hope to have you play along this month and thank you so much for stopping by -
