The French Birthday Card for the Reveal at My Sketch World

Well today is the 15th so that means a reveal from MY SKETCH WORLD.  Once again I had fun with this sketch and use the color combinatin of a beige and black.  I used Graphic 45 which is usually a challenging line to work with.  I wanted to make a birthday card for our French Teacher and I think I nailed it.

Here is the sketch:

and this is my take on it:

 Let me know what you think of it.

Boys Rule Scrapbook Kit -- ROCKS!!! Check it out.

Hi Everyone,

I have something to shout to you about what I am doing this month.  I am a Guest Designer for a fairly new site that has 2 kits a month that deals with BOY.  One is for the younger set and one for the older boys or Men.  The site is called:  Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits.
This month's kit is fabulous for the older boys it contains a lot of Tim Holtz and I have had so much fun playing with it and still have more I want to do.

Here is a layout I did with the kit"

I did this layout of Matthew from last month.  I used Walnut stain around the edges of the pattered paper, Tim Holtz Kraft Core that has been distressed, burlap that I frayed the edges, the sprocket gears are grunge that has been embossed by the CuttleBug and stained along with smooch and then I added some Tim Holtz trinkets on top.  Everything, I mean everything was in the kit except the Kraft Core paper.  I had fun playing with this.
Here is a close up of the Idea-ology sprocket gears and the grunge sprockets with smooch spritz

The next layout is another one of Matthew and I call it "my handyman", this is when he remodeled the kitchen.

on this one I used grunge, screw brads, CuttleBug to emboss on the grunge and spray it with smooch Olive Green, then I used the cording to put around my journaling.  The blue paper is Coredinations from my stash.   
Here is a close up of the grunge, brads and cording.
