ODBDLYLS17 Scrapbook Challenge

May! Can you believe it? You all know I am super busy here getting ready for our big move across the country. It's wild, and I feel like I am truly running in circles. So for ODBD's May Challenge, we decided to challenge you to a "sketch challenge with a twist"! Your scrapbook challenge for May is to: create a layout of any size using ODBD stamps and the sketch below with a twist--you must also use circles. Have fun with it! Turn the sketch, add 1-4 photos, add paint splatters for your circles, add a doily, buttons, whatever! There are always lots of fun and different things to do with a sketch and circles! And here is your sketch:

For my 8x8 page, I turned the sketch, and I also turned the photo squares into decorative circles. I used one circle to stamp the scripture from the new ODBD set called Fortress. I thought this set was perfect for this page showing that we should trust the Lord and how my mom and her identical twin trust each other. So, trust x2. :)

Pin It

Papers: Paper Trey Ink cs, Prima Plumeria, floral paper from recycled calendar
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Fortress
Stamp Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink peeled paint
Embellishments: Prima leaves, Paper Trey Ink buttons, Basic Grey chip alpha, Elle's Studio ledger number tag, Maya Road krafty owl, Hobby Lobby doily, sewing machine

To see more information, on our challenge this month and to play along with your chance to win a $15 gift certificate, please be sure to see the ODBD post here. Also, be sure to jump on over to Gemiel's blog to see her page inspiration using this challenge and stamp set!  So, have fun playing with the challenge, and we look forward to seeing what you create! Blessings,

Patter, this is wonderful! I love the photo of your mother & aunt, and the way you've tweaked the sketch. Now, Super Woman wannabe, I wish you a very productive day preparing for your move, and I pray that you and your family will feel exponentially blessed as you sort through objects & memories, keeping what is best. Deuteronomy 4:9 says "Only take care, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. Make them known to your children and your children's children."
Praying for you---Jennifer in OHio

Wonderful layout! Fab sketch and love how you swapped out the squares for circles! Love that picture of your mom and her sister! Sweet use of the colors from the photo into your layout!

Patter I love this layout and I just love your page. When I first saw it, I thought it was the same person with two photos and then I noticed they had to be in the same photo. Too funny when I read they were identical twins. Beautiful way to show the photo off with this great layout!
