The Good Life!

As today it's the 15th again we have a new sketch challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge!! and how I LOVE sketch challenges! I've noticed that I have a tendency to stick to one "safe" design if I don't (have to) use a sketch. Although, if I do have a sketch then it's hard to see I've used it at all!

Here's the layout I made. Manon, Mats, Julia and I had been to the library (yes, again ... we spend a lot of time there, LOL) and were cycling home when we met my dh who snapped a photo of us.

and a close-up:

I've used the January kit from Scraptastic Club called "Days of our Lives" filled with lots of Fancy Pants (The Good Life collection) which I so love! Isn't this paper just perfect for this photo?

And this is the February sketch from AFSC I've used:

I love the simplicity of this sketch! If you like it too, why not join us for a change at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge and who knows, maybe you're the winner of the monthly prize or maybe you'll be our next guest designer! Have a look at the blog for more inspiration from the other designers!

By the way, today is the very last day you can leave a comment with this (click for link) blogpost for a chance to win an Imaginisce I-Rock tool from me!!

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Weer een prachtige layout. Leuke sketch! Een ritje naar de biep is altijd goed, wat zouden we doen zonder boeken ;-) hugs, Mieke

  2. Ik vind het een erg mooie uitweking van de schets en zo'n onverwachte foto is altijd erg leuk!! fijn weekend

  3. Such a beautiful and refreshing page, Monique. I love the banners and layering behind the photo. Well done! :)

  4. Wat leuk, zo'n spontaan plaatje! Het is een hele gave lay-out. Ik vind vooral de 3D banner erg leuk.

  5. Good for you! (& your husband for getting the picture). Great family experience.

  6. Onwijs gaaf, Monique! Zo leuk zoals je foto verwerkt hebt, de vlaggenlijn enz.

  7. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving ♥. Your layout is gorgeous Monique. Your button border inspired me today.

  8. Love the matting of your photos - it adds so much color to the layout - and the way you pimped up the banner with buttons. Fabolous layout!

  9. I love the way you used this bicycle paper. I have that paper too and wasn't sure how to use it. LOVE your idea. Beautiful!
