SYTYCS week 4

This was a bit of a stretch for me as I don't have much black and white papers in my stash. So I pulled from a few scraps and wallah here we are! I used black, white, cream and the sketch, used a diecut title I made for a swap and some bling on my journal box and below the 3 pics. 

SYAO 52 - 1 year down, how many to go?

This deserves an entry all to itself as I have officially completed one year of challenges for Paper Secrets SYAO Round 2! YAHOO!! 
I enjoyed this last year, and tried many new things because of this challenge. Added many new items to my stash just in case it was one of the options, and now next week's challenge is going to be harder or so the threat is ;) ! 
I really like how this layout came out. It took a lot more time to make then usual because of all the extras but it was fun to work on! For the challenge I used 7+ pattern papers, paper clips, doilies, tags, buttons, twine and I distressed and used a stencil. TFL!

SYAO 51 & a few more ..

This was a layout created using a sketch from last weeks challenge on FTS group. I love the sketch and will for sure use it again and again! 

This is also a layout done using a sketch from Colorful Creations. I don't do many 1 or 2 pic pages but this is a nice sketch for those :)!!

Here is the journalling for the next sketch below. I made a booboo with the U R and covered it but then wanted to also accent the other YOU in the title .. so alone those two pieces say You are You .. which goes with the journalling and the title One of a Kind! 

My week 51 layout for Paper Secrets SYAO challenge. I used machine stitching, distressing, 5+ buttons, tags, staples, 8 pattern papers, vellum,  and arrows. I really like how it came out and it used up a LOT of scraps :)!
