Scrapbook Sketch & Challenge

I love sketches and I know all of you LS members love them too!  This sketch is for a super awesome giveaway yesterday on the Silhouette blog.  It is fun to take a basic sketch, make it my own and then see what other people come up with using the same sketch. The end results are always so unique. 

Hmmm...what can I do with this?  Lord knows I've got a gazillion photos that could be scrapped.  A sketch really helps me along.  It helps me over the creative road block.  It helps me select & print photos.  It gets me going...

I have blogged about my Silhouette machine before.  Love.

Here's my take on the sketch:

Race for the Cure 2011

After selecting, printing, and cropping just three photos, the rest is pretty easy.  I masked off a circle and sprayed a homemade shimmer mist (CTMH) around the edges.  I used white, black, cotton candy & blossom cardstock.  Oh, and a black pen.  The file tab on the side is a punch.  Other than the assembly, my Silhouette machine did all the work.  Love to hear the hum of that machine as it cuts.

This is the prize...a cute stylish tote for a new Silhouette Cameo machine that will surely be my birthday gift from Bill (hint, hint).

Is it just a coincidence that it's pink?  I think not.
