Authentique October Sketch Challenge

OCTOBER SKETCH...I turned it on it's side :)

YAY! It's time for another Authentique Paper Sketch to get your creative juices flowing. Are you guys sick of seeing my back to school layouts yet...sorry, but I'm loving having these DONE! Tessa, was last but definitely not least (love my baby girl) to have her layout completed.

The Splendid collection was PERFECT for these pictures of Tess on her first day. She wanted those shoes so badly and I was like "holy cajoly what are those even going to match?!?!" since they were less than $20.00 she won out. The craziest thing is that they light up so on early mornings before the sun has made it's way up into the sky she blinks all over the house :).

One of the other fabulous things about Authentique is there paper embellies. They just add the perfect sentiment and coordinate so nicely with the rest of the papers.

I took some of my foam Thickers and tinted them with ink. Then I heated and stamped them with a background stamp from Stampin' Up to get the texture. I just folded, cut and sewed my architectural trace paper to my layout for added dimension.

So head on over to the Authentique Blog today and enter the sketch challenge for the chance to win some goodies.
I hope you all enjoyed the last "installment" of my back to school layouts...hahaha. Now on to Halloween :)!!!
