Oct/Nov Sketch Challenges

Today we've the last Sketch Challenge to share, which is on show on Scrapville's Wall of Fame.  Apologies for not getting it up sooner, but we'll have votes tonight!!  Now, we're sharing some layouts using the new monthly sketch.  I hope you're being inspired by Anita's lovely designs and will join in with the challenge.
Peek a Boo (with GrandPa) by Heather Bensley
Heather has used her colours well, blending the orange and teal together.  The rosette flowers are a lovely addition to a boys page, along with the text paper, buttons and twine.
A closer look at the whitewashed background, and layering of the photo and papers. The twine has been adhered with it's loops intact, which also looks very effective.  Well done Heather.
Juarez by Sally Clark (CT)
I used a Carolee's Creations acrylic stamp set for the ink splodges and a Jilibean Soup stamp set (travel) for all the other little bits and they worked PERFECTLY or this LO. 
As some of the stamps are circular they fitted into circle punches beautifully, which allowed for some layering on the 'Photo Opp' stamp.
For the journaling below the title I used some old rub-ons to create the words I wanted.
The green scallop edging was actually cut from the extra strip across the bottom of the paper that usually gets thrown away...reduce, re-use, recycle at its best!
I wanted the title to stand up off the page so I adhered the Basic Gray alpha stickers to acetate and cut around the entire word before mounting it to the LO and finished it off with some Dimensional Magic on each letter.
On the tag I used some extra journaling, then tied the end with a thin strip of paper and a piece of thread.
I used a tiny red bling to mark on the world stamp roughly the area where this pic was taken and the word stamp 'You are here...' worked perfectly as well.
Well done girls, lovley creations.
