Happy - Stuck?! Sketches

Hi! I'm sharing my take on the new sketch up at Stuck?! Sketches today. We're teaming up with Scrap It With A Song for a co-challenge this month, so if you can find a way to combine the sketch with the song you have multiple chances to win a prize! The featured song is "Octopus Garden" by The Beatles. One of the sponsors for this challenge is Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits, so I used a favorite photo of my Nephew on this page.

I used some song lyrics for my journaling and the general happy theme of this song for the title of my page.

I was "happy" to find this stitched banner in my stash so I could add the stitched element from the sketch to my design without fighting with my sewing machine!

I loved the embellishment clusters in this sketch. It was fun to find use for some of the stickers, acrylic pieces and clips that I have been saving. This page has a great mix of supplies from the Heidi Swapp September Skies collection, the Basic Grey Capture collection, the Pink Paislee Color Wash and Hey Kid collections and the Crate Paper Boys Rule collection. I think they blend pretty well!

Here's the sketch if you want to play along. Our second sponsor is Wycinanka. We'd love to see your take on this sketch! For more inspiration, visit the Stuck?! Sketches Blog to see what the rest of the designers have created.

To enter for a chance to win, link your layout up in the right sidebar of the Stuck?! Sketches Blog by November 29th. All prizes winners are selected randomly using Random.org. When linking your layouts, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole, as it can be hard later in the month to find your layout. You can also link from any gallery including Flickr or Facebook, but we may not be able to comment. Feel free to combine this sketch with no more than one other non-sketch challenge. Please include a link back to Stuck?! Sketches on your blog entry for our challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!
