Hi everyone and the 2nd challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches is already here, can you believe it! Now the new challenge is "SKY" so as you can imagine, anything in the sky, belongs in the sky or I guess even just the sky! Well the first thing I thought of was airplanes and thought of having my grand kids come out here to visit and they want to take an airplane and the girls LOVE Hello Kitty (and all my faithful followers know that Hello Kitty is my secret obsession, shhhhh don't tell anyone, lol, I just think she's the cutest little thing, well other then my grand kids!) I also wanted to do something Bright and Colorful so what better choice then Hello Kitty!
Now Obviously I used the Hello Kitty Cartridges, both the Greetings and the Font, I also used Lyrical Letters for some of the words. I didn't add allot of extras this time because I just didn't think it needed it, with all the colors and larger images so I just added some buttons, did some doodling with black and white jelly roll pens, used a Martha Stewart punch for some contrast and a transition between the papers, added some pop dots to pop everything off the page and give more dimension and depth and added a little luggage tag on the piece of luggage. Now that piece of luggage doubles as my journaling spot! That's another little secret of mine that you'll learn if you follow me, I like to hide my journaling spots on my layouts, well not actually hide them, I like to find different and creative ways to incorporate them into my layouts. I've added some extra pictures of each side of the layouts for you do see better details if your interested.
Here is a close up of the Left side with my inspiration of the challenge "SKY" and the Airplane with the cute little Hello Kitty flying on her way to see Grandma! You can also see the doodling dots and the colorful buttons.
Here is a close up of the Right side with the Hello Kitty in the car.
And here is a close up of the luggage and my journaling tag, see isn't it a neat idea, just like a little card! Actually you could enlarge it and use it as a card and I wish I would have but I had already put everything away so next time I have all my stuff out I'll just have to make me a card to go with this.
And here is the Hello Kitty inspiration "SKY" in all her Glory! Too Cute don't you think, lol!
Well I sure hope you join us over at Stuck On U Sketch's grab your die cut machine and whip up something in that has to do with the "SKY"! You have 2 weeks to enter and you could win our cute Blinkie to add to your blog (along with bragging rights of course, lol)! I sure hope to see you there and while your out today, just take a look up at the sky, maybe you'll get inspired to create something!
