Sassy Lil Sketches & Paper Thrills Reveal!

Wow! Two reveals for me in the same day! First up is the 7th Reveal at Sassy Lil' Sketches. Here is this week's sketch:

And here is my layout:

I used a Martha Stewart balloon punch to create these cute little balloons.

I cut out a cute "one" design using my Cricut and the Graphically Speaking cartridge and used it as a mask...such a cool & easy way to get a unique & funky background!

You can win prizes from these awesome companies!

Layouts must be uploaded with Mr. Linky on the Sassy Blog by August 5th, 11:59 P.M. EST to be eligible for the July random prize drawing*.

*The paper prize is available to U.S. residents only

The digital prize is open to both U.S. and international residents.

Paper Thrills has a cool new challenge up. This one is all about summer songs. Create a layout with a title or journaling using the title or lyrics from your favorite summer song. I chose "Soak up the Sun" by Sheryl Crow. The title just popped into my head once I chose these cute pictures of Reese & her daddy :)

I hand cut the sun and used bubble wrap & craft paint to create the illusion of sky. I used a QTip and white paint to scribble on some clouds. I stitched a lot in this layout, which is one of my favorite things to add to a page!

Be sure to head over to both of these awesome blogs & check out what the other Design Team members created!
