"July Babies Rock" Layout by DT

Hello All!!!
Today's wonderful inspiration is the creative work of DT Patricia, inspired by our 
October Sketch/Color Combo Challenge:
Patricia shared this about the challenge and her page:
"What a challenge you had this month! The color combo in conjunction with the sketch was fun and...yes, you guessed it....challenging! The pics I used were from birthdays celebrated in July! I have tons of birthdays to celebrate in July, even mine! From family to friends, we take over!

For this challenge I used a line of paper I have had in my stash from KI Memories, "PlayList". It had most of the colors that were in the color palette which made it somewhat easier! I Added some old faithful flowers that I had to blow some dust off! Alphas came from Echo Park's "Photo Freedom" embellishment stickers and gotta love that Heidi Swapp color shine!

Hope you enjoyed this months challenge as much as we did!
Thanks for stopping by!"

"Such a Sweetheart" Layout by DT Megan

It's a marvelous Monday and we are happy to share with you DT Megan's
bright and cheerful layout she created inspired by our
October Sketch/Color Challenge
Here is what Megan shared about the challenge and her layout:
"I have to admit, I procrastinated this challenge as looking at all those colors kind of intimidated me, but then I began to just focus on a few and it got a lot easier! For my layout, I pulled together papers using four of the colors and went from there. The colors I used were Misted Yellow, Royal Blue, Aluminum and Aurora Red - the tags also have a little bit of Cognac. I flipped parts of the sketch and made an 8 1/2 x 11 layout instead of the 12 x 12 in the sketch. I added sewing and a few embellishments and called it done!"

Feeling inspired????

"Silly Little Pilot" Layout by DT Tanti

We are continuing this week with more fabulous Design Team
Today DT Tanti is sharing her wonderful interpretation of the sketch using a great combination of colors from the fall color palette that was provided as part of the challenge:
Tanti shared this with us about the challenge and her layout:
"Colour challenge was always challenging for me. Especially this one. I had to go through all my paper stash. Turned over every single sheet to find the right colours. And I was so happy as I finally found them. From the colour palette I used: The Bright Cobalt, Sangria, Misted Yellow, Cognac and the Mauved Mist. The next problem for me was finding the embellishments in that colour combo. Cause I didn't have much. But after I took a look again to my papers, I thought they were busy enough so that I didn't have to add much embellishments on it."

Inspired by the Tanti's awesome layout?

"Explore" Layout by DT Kate

We are back on the blog today with more Design Team inspiration!
DT Kate has created this awesome and as always fun layout inspired by our October
to share with you:
"While on vacation, we try to schedule things for both kids to enjoy together but sometimes, with my son being much younger and then also having some special needs, it's impossible. So, while in Florida, while the others went ziplining, he & I headed over to the Children's Museum. It was wonderful and since we got there early, there was hardly no one in there and my son got lots of one on one attention! "
I think I used every color in the color palette; it just so happened that this cute car paper had all the colors in it even if it didn't match the space theme LOL ... I then accented it with lots of yellow paper pieces from the stash. 2 of the tags have hidden journaling.

If you have not had a chance to play along with us this month, you have until

"I pretty much stayed true to the sketch with my layout. I love the fall colors that we were given to play with, they are beautiful. I was inspired by the blues, green, red, yellow, and aluminium. 
The collection I used, Simple Stories Urban Traveler, came closest to these colors and fit the story I was documenting. 
I look forward to seeing your layouts inspired by this year's fall colors."

"Missy and Sam" Layout by DT Robin

Yay!  It's Thursday!  
Today's ADORABLE feature is being shared by our talented DT Robin, inspired by our
"This was a fun layout for me to do. I, honestly, didn’t think I’d be able to complete it, initially. I had never done a color palette challenge like this one before. It was pretty easy once I noticed there was no pink in the palette. That eliminated a lot of patterned paper right off the top.

The sketch is a lot of fun, too. I obsess over tags. I used my Tim Holtz Large Tag Sizzix die to make my tags. I seem to get a lot of use out of that die!

For close-up pictures of the details, please visit my blog"
