Creative Scrappers #245

I have been a big fan of Creative Scrappers for quite a while now.  They have awesome sketches and such a fabulously talented team.  I 'pin' their sketch every week and swear i will get to it.  Yeah, you know how that goes.  Don't we all 'pin' with the best of intentions.

Well, this week is different.  I put that baby to use!!  I'm pretty proud of myself.  Especially because this week's sketch features a sunburst.  I know this has been trendy for a while but I have never attempted one because, well frankly because they scared me.  I thought for sure they would be complicated.  Oh no!!  Easy peasy and I love the look!!!

Okay, first up is the sketch (#245) by the fantastic Nicole Nowosad.....

And my first take on it.....


Monster Stew by Jillibean Soup
Bazzill Dotted Swiss cardstock
Stampin Up ribbon
button from stash

Then, just because I liked the sketch & sunburst so much, I decided to do another....


Oooh La La For Him by My Mind's Eye
American Crafts Thickers
miscellaneous ribbon & corrugated cardstock
