MCT Designer Challenge: Sketch!

by Veronica

Hey there! Today My Creative Time is hosting a scrapbook layout Sketch Challenge, so I created a new page for my wedding album - and it's all about CAKE! Yum!

This layout somewhat follows the sketch posted on the MCT blog. I definitely took some creative liberties with it, but I think that's kinda the point - make it your own! The cake was hand-cut (very simple) and then embellished with embossing folders, rhinestones and Stickles. I used a few MCT dies on my page: Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies, 4x4 Journal Die, Lowercase Fun Dies. For the "you take", I used two different stamps from Treasured Moments - inking only the words I needed and stamping them side-by-side.

Here's a close-up of some of the page:

I'd like to take a moment to point out my face in the second photo and defend myself. I realize that I look mean and angry in that photo, but let me explain. My husband had just lovingly placed delicious wedding cake in my mouth. I, on the other hand, couldn't pass up an opportunity to smoosh just a wee bit of cake in his face. As I did this, I started to laugh - but I still had cake in my mouth. The demon-ish look on my face was my sad attempt at trying to keep my mouth closed while it was full of cake and I was laughing. Since you and I are such close friends, I trust that you'll keep this photo between us. *wink wink*

Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share with you today. You can see how the other designers interpreted the sketch on the My Creative Time blog.

I hope you were inspired!
