Cuttlebug Challenges




Last nite I sat down to make a card for the Cuttlebug Challenge this week but changed my mind and did a scrapbooking page instead. This week's challenge was a sketch challenge and it was from guest designer Becky Fleck. The colours are Sahara Sand, Blush Blossom and Night of Navy. I considered some journalling but decided the setiment said it all "I'm glad there is You". I was really happy with how this page turned out. I will definately be using my cuttlebug on my scrapbooking pages from now on. It is probably a bit hard to see but all the circles and shapes have been embossed with the cuttlebug using a couple of different folders. I hope you like it and are staying out of the heat today.

Great job translating the sketch to a layout. That was where I started to head and failed. LOL! You knocked it out of the park though :)
