A New & Improved SEM Sketch Challenge

This month over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracle's Blog we are trying something new...adding a Card Sketch to the Layout Sketch we've always done. So you'll have your choice of doing the Layout Sketch OR the Card Sketch OR if you do BOTH you'll receive 2 entries into our awesome prize drawing this month...which is $40 worth of BUTTON FLAIR from FindingNana!

So...back to the Sketches...both are from PageMaps! The SCRAP TWIST to include is WASHI TAPE (I think I've only used Washi tape one other time...a little piece on a it was fun to play with some for this challenge---it just might be a new love of mine!).

Card Sketch

And here's my take on both:

Hope you join us for this challenge...can't wait to see what you create!

SEM's April Challenge

The Main Challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles this month is to create a project about a pet or favorite animal. And the SCRAP TWIST is to use a quote about an animal. 

We at the Goedeking house have been blessed with a few pets...a 5 year old black lab, Loretta, a Calico cat named Kali, and two chickens named Lulu and Freckleface Strawberry. I've already done quite a few layouts about Loretta...because my daughter Ellie and her are such great buddies I have lots of cute photos. But this is not so much the case with Kali Cat. Ellie and Kali have kind of a love-hate relationship going on....Ellie loves Kali, but Kali doesn't so much love Ellie (because well, she's quick, loud and a little crazy a lot of the time, and Kali prefers peace). But as Ellie matures, she's coming to understand that Kali will like her more if she is slow in her movements and quiet...and so the beginning of a beautiful relationship is starting to form...maybe?:) Only time will tell!! (and next on the list to scrap...those 2 crazy chickens!) 

Here's a close-up of that "very fitting" CAT quote:
