"Celebrate Today layout" Stick it down challenge blog hop

Welcome to Stick It Down's June blog hop

Several of our design team members have created projects to share with you using any of our past SID sketches. If you've never participated in a blog hop before, you'll "hop" from blog to blog to visit each designer's page and project. You'll leave a comment at each stop along the hop. The hop will end here where you started, where you can comment to let us know you've completed the hop and you're entered to win the grand prize. You have until Monday June 6 at 11:59pm to complete the hop. The winner will be announced on or before June 9.

We have several prize packages and one grand prize lined up! Paper Wings Productions is generously sponsoring our blog hop and is offering a gift certificate to the online store!

Paper Wings Productions is owned by Carrie Edelmann Avery. All of the PWP stamps are produced in the USA and are made using the highest quality of materials. You can check out the PWP online store to see the red rubber cling stamps and the clear photopolymer stamps!
In addition the the grand prize, many of our design team members are offering prizes on their blog and we also have a few other prizes lined up. We've also made it possible to earn additional entries for prizes by following the SID blog, our Facebook page, the PWP blog, and the PWP Facebook page.

If you've come here from Jess K's blog then you are on the right track. Check below for the complete list of hoppers.

Our assignment for this month was to pick a previous sketch and create a page inspired by it. The sketch I chose is this....

And here's my take on the sketch....
I love the lined photos on both sides of the two page spread. But instead of using 3 vertical photos on the left side, I used 4 smaller horizontal photos and added some embellishments in the center. I also replaced one of the slot for photo on the right side with pattern paper. I love how this sketch is so flexible. 

I got this wood "celebrate" Heidi Swapp accent from the clearance section at JoAnn's craft store. I debated if I should color it in but at the end, I decided that the natural color stood out against the colorful background. What do you think?

Are you ready to get started? Here is the order of the hop, in case you get lost:


Have fun hopping today. 

Till next time,
Grace
