Platinum Scraps was originally launched February of 2010 as a vision of several friends who met on the Cricut Message board who wanted to venture out into creating, sharing, and showcasing the many talents each of us possess. Platinum Scraps showcases the diversity in scrapbooking and features designers from all walks of life. To keep the tradition going, each week our design team is challenged to create a unique layout or card based on a sketch that exemplifies their skills and talents. We hope that we inspire your creations and we appreciate your continued love and support as we grow together.

Layout Sketch Challenge - "15"

Welcome Scrappers! This week our design team was challenged with a layout sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.

I think we would all agree that this sketch was out of our comfort zone but I am sure that you will love how each designer uses the sketch to inspire beautiful creations. You are invited to join us by linking up your sketch creation below, we look forward to seeing what you create! Today we have this awesome layout by Jojorenee.

When I saw this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays   I was immediately frightened that I could do absolutely nothing with it! I panicked and I named it the circly thing.  Then as I looked at it over and over several ideas came to mind and one really stuck with me.  I had wanted to do a layout of my niece Keyandra who I call my first daughter because before I had one she was my world.  I also wanted to do a song I really loved by Five for Fighting -100 years because it mentions 15 in the song and Keyandra's 15th birthday was coming up.  I chose Echo Parks Happy Days because the soda pop and stuff seemed teen theme.  I got in my giddy scrap happy mood as it all came together and wha-la!!!
