June Sketch Challenge (part 1)

Over at our Challenge Blog, we've got a fabulous SKETCH to challenge & inspire you this month, designed by our friend, customer and amazing designer, Cheri (who is also owner of Graphicat Designs- I tell ya, this girl does it all!). We can't wait to see what YOU will create with this layout!
As you may have noticed, our sketch this month also has a twist... a Masculine theme! This twist was actually a challenge for me (turns out flowers are even more attractive when you know you can't use them! LOL), but Mom, on the other hand had her mind spinning and created this fantastic layout:
As the page says.... "Mmn..." gotta love coffee! And according to my dad, who took these pics of my brother and the coffee they enjoyed on a hiking trip a couple years ago, camp coffee is extra delicious! Here's a close up of Mom's corner embellishment cluster- a tag by Maya Road, real coffee beans and a stamped coffee cup on the folded corner.
Mom's used Distress Core'dinations cardstock & paper by My Mind's Eye, as well as some masculine touches from the man, Tim Holtz- tissue tape and his tattered banner die.

Mom was so inspired by the sketch, she kept on going and made a second layout! She flipped the sketch on it's side and simplified it a bit... but here's page 2, with more coffee photos from the same trip:
Hope you like 'em and are inspired to create something of your own for our challenge this month! Hop on over to the Challenge blog to check out all the details, and take a wander around to see what the rest of the Design Team has created as well!

Check back with us... I'll be back soon to share the card I created for the challenge as well!
