Sketchy Thursdays GDT Challenge

Hello all my blogging friends! 
 I have a LO to share today in which I used a photo that I have been saving a while.  The little girl in this photo is one of my BFF's daughters. She is quite a bit more grown up now! We were camping at Girl Scout Camp and I got wonderful shots of her and several of the other girls in my troop. The mood has finally struck me to scrap some of them, and here is one. 

 I have used MME papers for this LO, all from the Lost and Found lines, and a little scrap from Best Creations. I have also used Core'dinations cardstock. My embellies are from Prima, Kaiserkraft, House of 3, Cosmo Cricket, Scarlet Lime, Tattered Angles, Martha Stewart and some others from my stash. I have used punches from Fiskars and Martha Stewart.  

I am entering this in the Sketchy Thursdays GDT   challenge. Love the sketch they had this month and just had to give it a try! Here is a look at it,,,

Along with the sketch, there were "extras" we had to play along with. 
1. Summer Theme
2. A Journal Spot
3. and a couple of colors to choose from - I picked RED
Please hop over to their blog and have a look at the wonderful things the DT has created. 

I am also entering this over at Scrapbookers Anonymous  where the challenge this time around was to use a color that is hard for you to use. That color for me would be BLACK. I have a hard time working black into my LO's. So I snuck some in with my embellies and matting. Not bad, huh? 

I really hope you are cooler where ever you are than we are here!!! It is so blasted hot here! and dry! I would go outside and do a rain dance if I thought it would do any good. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

  6. I know this sounds a bit 'sad' but I actually analysed the colours I use in LOs in a spreadsheet and was amazed to discover that blue is my most used colour. So it's no surprise to say that I love the colour scheme. (and black's my least used too)
