SWAT Drill #2

Drill #2 for February is up on the S.W.A.T. blog and it is an awesome sketch challenge this week. There is a super fabulous prize involved too. I have to say, I wish I was eligible to play for these prizes. Lanette has done an awesome job getting sponsors and donations.

Here is the sketch that was created by Janessa, one of the ladies on the design team. It's a super fun sketch to work with.

I stayed pretty true to the basic layout of  the sketch but chose to add or change a few elements. Instead of using a large circle behind my photos I used a background stamp to add a subtle textured look behind the photos and papers. Other than that I pretty much followed the design and added a couple of extra strips of washi tape to the top left corner because it felt a little empty to me. I pulled out some older My Mind's Eye papers that I have had sitting in my collection for awhile. I have a hoarding issue with My Mind's Eye. One of my all time favorites.

There it is. This is the view I most often get of my children these days. A moment without electronics in their hands or ear buds in their ears is priceless.

If you haven't had a chance to check out my last post I would love for you to scroll back and check it out. My card for the next round of the Practical Scrappers card contest is up and voting is taking place right now.
