Creative Inspirations Sketch challenge!!

Hello my friends,
I hope it is cool and comfy wherever you are!!
It is the dawn of a new day in the UK
which means that it is time for a new challenge at
Creative Inspirations
which is a wonderful sketch by Nat (scroll down)
We are sponsored by MelJen's Designs this week
and she was kind enough to give the team
some images to play with, thank you!!!

Clearly, I have used a MelJen digi stamp, coloured in prismacolors and then distressed around the edge of everything with Vintage Photo, around the image I have used prisma markers to add a shadow around the image. I've used MME papers, kraft CS, I used my MS punch to create my world famous doily frame LOL, toot toot!! The heart charm is Blue Moon Beads and the hearts I've added are a hAnglar accesory stamp, Crystal Stickles was added here and there for a bit of razzle dazzle.

There was a hearts challenge out there in Blogland but I cannot recall where at the mo' but that was the reason for going with all the heart decor. This week I have some extra special things to blog along with my project. The kids were due for some art time, so I let them at Nat's sketch and this is what they've created:

Ellias (3)

He got to pick out all of his own things, from the stamp to the papers to the flowers, lol, it's okay, he hangs out with boys all the time, a few flowers won't hinder his upbringing too awfully bad!! He got to put double sided tape on all the cut pieces and had a genuine fit when he laid down one of the pannels crooked!! We had to lift it up and start again, too funny!!

Anna (7)

Anna has joined in with a wonderful MelJen image, coloured in markers with a monotone paper selection that lets the image and accesories do the talking, lol!! Look at those rosey cheeks :)

Jasli (9)

Jasli has used the wonderful Tilda with basket?? from this years Easter release, coloured with Crayolas, MME and K & Co. papers and a fine selection of mulberry flowers to really set this creation off!!

Awwwww, now isn't that fun....
I hope you can stop by this week and join in with the challenge. Before I go, let me show you the sketch:

Today will be a double posting for me as I have another sample card from TPS to share with you all!! Come back soon :) It posts at 5 PM Aus, which means middle of the night for me, meh, I'm up anyway, lol!!

Take Care for now,

What a cute image and love how you colored her. Pretty papers too. Wow, looks like the kids had the run of the stamp room! Bet they were in seventh heaven. Each one a masterpiece, of course, and I bet they now reside on the refrigerator.....right? They have a great teacher!!! Flowers won't hurt the boy, maybe someday he will appreciate what flowers mean to a gal!!!
