Colorful Creations

Hey y'all & happy weekend! It's a nice one here & we are staying busy!!
last night was one of our favorite fall events-Field Day of the Past. It's a carnival/exhibit & my kids always love going. Last night was no exception! this was the first year though that we didn't watch the truck & tractor pull! Ty was too enthralled with the rides to be bothered this time!
Today is full of baseball games/riding lessons & then some girl time for me tonight! (I can't wait!!)

I want to share some information about Colorful Creations' design team call! They host bi-weekly sketch challenges that are so fun! Have a peek at the call info here.
I created this layout based on their sketch & prompt to use fall colors:

I started with the kraft cardstock (it screams fall to me!) & added layers of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. I chose the orange polka dots & stripes from their Lost & Found collection. I love mixing manufacturers and prints, which is exactly what I did here.

The pennants were cut from a piece of Pink Paislee paper, from their Prairie Hill collection.
The leaf border is old from my stash. Love when I can use older items and "clean out"!!

The heart sticker and chippie buttons are from My Mind's Eye's Market Street collection-love it!
I also used a die cut leaf stem from Fancy Pants. My alohas are, of course, Thickers!

 My doily is from Martha Stewart. The flatback is from Jenni Bowlin and the "happy days" sticker is also from My Mind's Eye's Market Street coltection.

This sketch was great fun to play with! If you get a chance, give it a go! The dt call is open through September 23.
Scrap on!!
