Punky Scraps Challenge 17 and SOD Sketch

Hey! I have two LOs to share right now. The first is my challenge entry for the Punky Scraps Challenge 17 which was to use the word laugh to inspire the project. This is titled 'Laugh Together' and features my BF with one of his closest guy friend. It's sad that we don't live in the same city anymore because we have really gotten out of touch. I hope that this is not always the case.
What I love the most about this page is that 1) it proved that I could still do guy pages (It had been a while and I was getting worried) 2) I used an old collection (which completely justifies my purchase I believe ... my BF on the other does not believe this) and 3) it seriously took me less than 30 minutes! That was awesome and I don't hate the end result which is even more awesome.

I also have my page for the Scraps of Darkness May Sketch Challenge. I love the BG paper so much that I almost did not scrap with it. In fact I was crazy hesitant to even add anything to it but the photo. However I got over it. It is titled 'Soaked' and it features a pic of my BF and I at Disney's Animal Kingdom. We are literally soaked in this pic as it was taken right after we got off of the rapids ride that actually stopped for a few minutes while we were under some sort of waterfall. My BF's sister though had gotten it much worse than us. Fun fact is that this photo was taken in Asia and I used these Asian inspired papers to scrap it!
So I love to add dimension to my pages but only within a limit. I loved the little fan that came with my kit but I thought it made the page way too bulky to fit into my album comfortably. So I cut it! I kept the fan part but got rid of the wood that connected it all together. I then hid it behind the flower so you can't really tell. Except now you know because I told you. I had these flowers in my stash (I literally though I would never use the flower vine so I was super happy ... except I still have one more) I just brightened up their color with some mists. I also misted the fan with the mists from the color add on and I stamped it with the prima stamps in the kit. I added the gemstones because I thought it needed a little something extra.
I have recently discovered that I love love love raw chipboard. You can make it fit any color scheme and if you don't like how it turned out you can just paint over it again and again! How awesome is that? I misted the swan with three of the mists from the color add on and then I outlined it with liquid pearls. The letters are also from the kit and spritzed with the turquoise mist from the kit. I then added the dots of stickles.
I have been really into punches lately. Which is a good thing because they were just going to waste in my stash. Better late than never to join the punch love I guess. I added the prima pearls and gems because the punch I used seemed to go perfectly with them. I also outlined the photo with stickles to break up all the black.
There it is~ I have had a good amount of productive days, however I didn't scrap today so maybe my productivity is slowing down, which would be sad. I hope you enjoyed these pages!!
