March Challenges

Well here we are, ready to share the first of our Monthly Pack layouts, and some Sketch challenges as well.
Bella's Birthday Bash by 'Zan Boyle
It's great to see a multi photo layout, I think it's something a lot of us struggle to do. Zan's layout has great balance, the scallop border edged with the lace trim looks great and the the party just seems to be perfect for these papers.
A lovely combination of colours, that gorgeous trim, Zan's handmade punched flowers and a bit of bling on the Thickers!
Scrapville's lovely new flowers certainly look the part on Bella's Birthday layout!  Well done Zan, just beautiful.
Libby by Dawn Collins
Well Dawn has been very quick off the mark with this one.  The trim around the top bracket looks great, the mounted up floral cutout above the title fits in perfectly, and I love how Dawn has inked her white cardstock to blend in with the gorgeous papers, focusing entirely on that wonderful birthday photo.
I love the scattered bling and Dawn's addition of some soft inking on the flower.  Really lovely Dawn.
Monthly Sketch Challenge
Little Red Coats by Kylie gW
I'm glad to see Kylie has found her Mojo with this fabulous take on the Sketch.  Lots of work in this, and I became very dizzy trying to read that journaling!  The scattering of red just ties in so nicely with your page, and I love your mix of embellishments.  Well done Kylie.

Only a week to go until Pumpkin Time, so be sure to get yours in!  Thanks for playing everyone.

Love your girly layout Zan - those punched flowers are really pretty and I love the large frame around the photo Libby. It works brilliantly! Kylie - such a lot to look at in your layout. The natural hues and black and red look awesome!

I LOVE Kylie's layout, fantastic selection of textures I could look at it for ages. It's so inspiring that I'm going to have a look on my bookshelf for and old book that needs a new life :)

Zan love your b&w pics with these gorgeous pp's. Dawn, love the design of your layout - the circular pic is fantastic, and so is the scattering of bling. Kylie, the colours of your layout are sensational - I struggle using red for some reason, but you have done a super job combining it with the kraft.
Simply adore all the *bits* on an awesome layout

Thank you so much for your lovely comments about my page. I was inspired the Scrapville sketch and by an online come that had a black worded spiral on print from a dictionary. I was really happy with my page (and my childhood pics). The spiral was really challenging.
