Sharin' A Smile.

Good morning to you!

It's 7am on April 1st and no this is not a joke......I really am here bright and early for a change!

We've headed into a new month which means it's time for a brand new challenge over at Two Scrapbook Friends, and yours truly is the host.

We received some fabulous entries last month and although Spring is trying it's best to make an appearance ( I know I for one am desperately trying to soak up every ray of sunshine out there!), I'm hoping you will all still have a chance to play along again this month!

Please remember that every entry linked over on the TSF blog needs to show your interpretation of both the Sketch and the Crafty element.

So without further ado, and continuing with my move into digital, here's this months Sketch:

For the 'Crafty' element of my challenge, I have chosen something which is pretty 'on trend' right now........Confetti!

You don't have to stick to paper of course, although you can if you wish.  Sequins, rhinestones, pearls, enamel dots, eyelets, brads and even paint splatters to name a few, will all work just fine as long as you create a scattered confetti styled element on your design.

Here's my sample:

Don't they say dog owners begin to look like their canine friends?

I started to believe this after I looked at the photo my daughter snapped........Charlie and I wearing the same expression!

For my 'confetti' I used a selection of sequins, pearls and rhinestones......

I also added a paper covered wood veneer circle, a pin/button and the title is cut using my Cameo.

A fairly simple page really, but it makes me happy.

I do hope you'll get a chance to play along with my challenge this month........it's always fascinating to see a sketch used in so many different ways!

Don't forget to link up your creation over on the TSF blog because as always, there's a Gift Certificate to the store up for grabs by one lucky winner!

Well that's about it from me but I'll be back tomorrow, together with the rest of the Little Red Wagon gals.

See you then,
