Paisleys Playhouse DT Call (Sketch & Scrap Layout)

This is a two fold post.  I am taking part in a Design Team Call for Paisleys Playhouse as well as submitting a layout for Sketch~N~Scrap: Guest Designer Contest.  I have not tried a layout sketch yet or had to make one for a DT Application so this is all new. 

First, here is the inspiration sketch.

I've used a textured dark base for the layout and added a more structured vertical strip of a retired CTMH paper.

Most of the floral chipboard and rub-ons are new (to me) Basic Grey brand.  I've added a few black and white pictures (some of my favorites) of me and my husband, a few sparkly copper flourishes.
My favorite addition though is the black sheer ribbon that hold a brass heart. 
Overall, I love the monochromatic feel and all I need to add is some journaling to make it scrapbook ready.  I hope you enjoyed it!


  1. Wow, what an awesome layout! I love it! Thanks for using our sketch for your inspiration but most of all thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. I love your layout! I am so bummed that you just missed the cut off. I hope you will join us again and again and again. I love your work and we will have other contests over at Sketch-n-scrap. :)
