Challenge C involves some inspiration from both a sketch and a photograph!
Here’s the sketch… it’s one of mine… lucky #7!
Next, I’d like you all to take your inspiration from this photograph: the images, the circle, the colours, the shading…. WHATEVER you like! This is a trivet I purchased for .49cents at a local store. Isn’t it gorgeous? LOL!
And remember! With every LO you complete you are “given” a ballot which I’ll place in a hat with your name on it: A chance to win the Colorbok prize pack featured in the post previous to this one. It’s growing every time someone completes a Challenge and leaves me the link to check out!
Go, go, go!!! Can’t wait to see what you’ll create!

Hello everyone! Here’s hoping Spring has found you! We have had lots of April Showers here and now are expecting the MOST GORGEOUS weekend with summery temps here in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. When are ya’ll coming to visit me? You KNOW I’d love that!
Well, I must have Spring Fever b/c I posted the interpretations and forgot the Sketch! ROFL! OH MY Ali!!
Here’s that promised Sketch #12! (Better late than never! **Shaking my head at myself! LOL**)
Noella and I have a special treat for you today. Our talented Guest Designers, sisters Carla, Susan and Deanne, have interpreted today’s sketch! It’s such an honour for me to see how they interpret something I drew! LOL A big thanks ladies, for that.
Without further ado: Here are the sisters’ layout interpretations of Sketch #12!
~CY Guest Designer Carla Robinson provides us with a glimpse of the beauty of nature in her layout~
(Carla, I love the rich earth tones & the sweet critter faces in the pix. That title is PERFECT! LOL!)
~CY Guest Designer Deanne Burton created this layout in memory of a beloved pet. ~
(Deanne, I just love the “softness” of this layout- it’s so perfect for a LO about a bunny. )
CY Guest Designer Susan Coish provides us with a glimpse of the happiness of children at play in her layout for Sketch #12

There is a little story behind this sketch.
I am always trying to encourage my oldest child, Kate (15), to scrapbook with me.
One evening, quite awhile back, she DID!! Her layout, of course had to do with a pony at the barn, Oakley– the horse she rode in lessons. The layout (LO) was so simple and effective that I fell in love with it. When I began sketching for Creatively Yours, this LO design kept coming to mind. The resulting sketch is pretty much 100% based on Kate’s layout. I worked in reverse and created my sketch from her page! Hope you like it.
~ Creatively Yours Sketch #15, based on a LO by Kate MacDonald ~
Here is a scalloped and lacy treat for your eyes: an Easter layout by talented CY Design Team member Beth Price!
Here’s a layout from “Yours Truly,” based upon Sketch #15
(A quick note…The title is “PART of my heart ” since Noah, our youngest, is missing from this photo.)

Here’s a sketch I drew for Creatively Yours. I used my sample page/LO for this sketch on Sisterhood of Scrap in February as part of my “Teaching Tuesday” tutorial about using paints in your scrappin’! You can read that here.
Here is my sample page for the sketch. It’s called “Cover Shot.”
Our next LO was created by CY Designer Beth Price and is called “Pump it!”
Our third LO today is by CY Designer Ann Seleshanko and gives some good advice: “Be yourself!”

It brings me lots of happiness to bring you Sketch #9. Hope you like it and get lots of inspiration from it and from our CY Designers’ interpretations!
By the way, I have been meaning to mention that all the little suggestions I write on my sketches are ONLY that: suggestions! Often they are just little snippets, notes and reminders to myself, useful for when I create a layout from the sketch!
Additionally, though, it’s really great to see how the girls will interpret a sketch with a few things written on it! 🙂
This interpretation is from “Creatively Yours” Designer Merrilee Wheaton. Just look at the blues, buttons and doodling that Merrilee used here: Wow!
“Creatively Yours” Designer Jenifer Cowles showcases a beautiful photo of one of her children in this softly coloured, gentle interpretation of Sketch #9
This time, I had a chance to interpret my own sketch! Here it is…with some playtime pix of Daniel, our “Savvy Star Aficionado” TYFL!

And, there’s more! Here is March 2009 “CY” Guest Designer Rowee Ortile’s precious, child-friendly “take” on Sketch #8
This time I had the chance to interpret my OWN sketch! Hope you like this layout, originally published over at Journaling Junkie.
Thanks to our Designers and Guest Designers for their beautiful interpretations of the Sketch!
They both made me smile!! How about you?

I am pleased to present to you once again, “Creatively Yours” Sketch #51 and two more interpretations from our talented DT!

A gorgeous, soft & finely detailed garden layout from “Creatively Yours” Designer, Merrilee Wheaton. It makes one long for Spring here in the Annapolis Valley!
Coincidentally, “Creatively Yours”
Designer Jenifer Cowles also chose a garden as the featured subject in her layout. Isn’t the richness of the colour here breathtaking?
Thank you, Jenifer and Merrilee for making Sketch #7 come to life! How beautiful…

Every so often, depending on how the assignments are progressing along, and how the blog posting is going, we have the chance to offer a CY-DT member or Guest CY-DT Member the opportunity to complete a Special Assignment. Usually the turn-around time is quite tight, so Kudos to the gals who have been able to accept and deliver on these.
Today we have some beautiful eye candy for you from CY DT Member Liz Weber, as she interprets Sketch #6. Enjoy!
