I love to play with Authentique

This weekend, I had the opportunity to play along with Authentique's March Sketch Challenge, which can be found HERE. I LOVE Authentique's lines of papers, and I also love the simple sketches they have been posting each month on their blog as they give you the basic layout and allow your imagination to take over from there.

I used a picture taken of my sweet little nephew being held by his proud daddy, who just happens to be my baby brother. The name "Authentique" of course, means "authentic" and that made me think of my brother because that is exactly what he is! Plus, I really like the picture and would have found just about any excuse to use it. *smile*

I had left-over bits and pieces of blue from another layout that I decided to use on this one. I like the small pop of a cooler color.

For my banner, I hand cut circles out of my paper and mounted them on twine.

And I can't seem to get enough of layering these "rulers" ---

That's it for tonight, but be sure to stay tuned; I have both Lori Whitlock and Practical Scrappers projects coming up later this week!


  1. Love this. Such a sweet pic and it's beautifully showcased here. Great work and a great take on the sketch.

  2. I love it! Your style has such a beautiful clean and modern look these days!

  3. What a beautiful layout to compliment such a beautiful picture! Nice job!
