Sharing from the Monthly Pack & Sketch

Hello everyone, today we have a few more layouts and cards to share using the Jenni Bowlin "Haven" range.  Again we are seeing some different takes on this pack, so I'm very impressed with the extent of your creativity.  Nothing like a pack challenge to get you thinking!
Grandma's Treasures by Sally Clark (CT)

The focus for Sally's layout came entirely from the Common Objects patterned paper.  Having acquired lots of lovely objects from her Grandmothers, Sally was inspired to create a little booklet on her layout which allowed her to add more photos, and utilize more of the papers onto the layout as well.  The colour theme worked really well, with Sally printing her photos onto smooth cardstock.

These layouts and cards are from the Monthly Sketch Challenge, which is due to close at midnight on the 14th August.  Be quick, we're almost there!! 
Wanted by Michelle Rogers (GCT)
Michelle has used her August Monthly Pack to put together this layout of a very young Mr & Mrs Rogers in their wilder days.... right!  The papers worked really well with the theme of the photos.  The sheet music has been used as a background, edging slightly with a burnt effect.  The row of patterned paper circles have been cut from various pieces of the pack, and distressed nicely back to the white core.  Nestled behind is a layered length of the lace and gimp.  

The handmade flower tops it off. 
 For You Card by Roz Langridge
The photo really hasn't done this card any justice.  The colours are great, and the fold out in the centre that flips the sentiment works well and also looks great.  A very effective card.

Cherry Cherry Baby by Roz Langridge
I love how Roz has used the photo sequence with this sketch, as well as using the Monthly Pack to do it.  They have worked so well together.

Thanks for sharing girls, loving the very different takes this Monthly Pack is bringing out in your creativity.

Some gorgeous layouts, Roz the papers work perfectly with those cute photos, and the diamonds overlapping is a great idea.... Sally love your butterflies and how you've cut out the cup and bottle from the papers and made them a feature.

Lovely work Roz! What a great way to use the monthly pack AND fit the sketch challenge in at the same time. That card is awesome too!
