You are the best Teacher

New month means lots of new challenges. Here is the first that I have for you - the new sketch from 'Stuck?' sketches and my take on it for the design team. Isn't this a great sketch? As you probably know I love multiphoto pages!
I took these photos lat weekend when my oldest son Chris was over and decided to teach Sophie how to ride her skateboard (until then she had been too scared to even try standing up on it).. Well, Chris is a primary school teacher by trade and is really good at inspiring little ones to 'give it a go'. Within ten minutes she was up and riding down the driveway effortlessly!
The sunburst pattern that I used as the focus of my background replaces the circle element on the sketch. I used an old plastic pizza plate as a mask (I have used this before - it is one of my favourite masks and it was free!!!) I used my new 'Inktense' pencils to colour the 'rays'.
My patterned paper is again Heidi Swapp memory files that I have cut up. The circle stickers are from Heidu Swapp. They were part of a project life kit but are perfect for regular scrapping too.
Check out a few close ups.

Hope you will visit the Stuck? blog and take a look at the inspiration that is over there this month. It will amaze you! Try out our sketch and be in to win some great prizes including a kit from:

Beautiful layout! I adore all of the bright and colorful elements. And I don't know how you did this...but it has "movement". I never really understood what that meant until now. This is pretty darn awesome!
