Karen said: "My Inspiration for this sketch is the hearts that are in the paper and the heart in the title. I also used the colors of blue and white with black writing.  I knew all the hearts showed how much we loved them and the list to journal what we think of them.  These are my buddies."

"I am Thankful and Blessed" mini-album pages

Elisha wrote that "The elements that I pulled from the inspiration piece were the colors and the heart balloons. The balloon journaling card I tucked behind the photo fit perfectly and these are some of my favorite colors to work with."

 Heather Bridges Topich
Regarding inspiration for this layout, Heather told me that "the colors seemed old-fashioned to me, so I pulled a background paper that resembled old fabric."

"Cruising the Thames" layout

Ann Seleshanko
Ann emailed a note with her creation saying that her inspiration for this layout was the colour palette the paint chip provided.

Journaling reads: Daniel, we celebrated your 12th birthday in August 2012 with a pool party for some of your friends. It was a hot, beautiful summery day. Before we went outside, there were gifts and a delicious DQ ice-cream cake depicting a big green sea turtle to celebrate summer. The turtle on the cake also commemorated your Leatherback Sea Turtle project from Grade 6. 

I took my inspiration from the deep blue and cream swatches of colour and the linear way the paint chip was blocked out. The dark ink I used to distress the edges of the outer piece of cardstock mimicked the distressed-looking hem on the model's party dress. And yes, I even got a splash of RED in there! LOL 

Thanks soooo much for your work on that beautiful LO, Angela! You made the sketch come alive & thus shared tonnes of scrappy inspiration... your sense of style is truly "bang-on," yet fun, fresh and unique. Loved what you created.  

I want to thank the S: CY Design Team for knocking it outta the park this week: Wow girls, you sure came through!  Really great job!
