CY#6 - My Girl...with a Sketch!

Happy Hump Day!  Time to reveal the latest challenge over at Challenge YOUrself!  Since this is the honorary month of motherhood, we are celebrating motherhood by challenging YOU to scrap a photo of yourself with one of your "girls"...your daughter, your mom, your grandma, etc. etc.  And we have a great sketch for you to work with too!

This month we have a great prize for you.  All you have to do is play along and link your creation to be entered to win this Bo Bunny Baby Bump ephemera pack.

So.  Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it.  CLICK HERE to see what the rest of the design team came up with!

I'm currently teaching myself watercolors, so I've been playing with them quite a bit lately.  For this layout, I used them over a Tim Holtz stencil to get this effect behind the photos.

Here's a photo of the 2 watercolors I used, and a shot of the Tattered Angels mist and paint I used to make the swirly design on the photo frames (they were white Recollections frames).

And some close ups of the page details.  I had a blast making this one.  I'm loving watercolors!

So there you have it!  Remember, at Challenge YOUrself, you have a whole month to come up with your creation and submit it for us to oooh and ahhhh over...and you might just win a prize!  ;-)

Enjoy your day!
