Demolition Derby LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) This is the 2nd layout sketch for the month over at Sketch N Scrap. We have a fantastic sketch from Heather Hall this month to play with here:
 No photo description available.
 This is what I created with it :
Went to the local fair in July 2018 and this is the 2nd Heat as they call it :) The 4X6 cylinders are a cool looking car and they last a long time too in the Derby but it was exciting too.
Used both my current counterfeit kit and last month's kit for the orange background paper. Got 4 more pictures from this heat so will be making this into a double page layout.
Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up too in my corner of the world. I look forward to seeing what you create from this fun sketch.

CKC - July Kit Reveal - Playing in the Dirt

Good Morning and welcome to a new month, a new day and a new kit inspiration. You should have arrived her from Tara's blog. We like to welcome our guest Forger this month: the lovely Jess Claire and you can find Jess at Jess Claire Creates, Instagram and YouTube.
Claire is our host this month and she has provide a different type of inspiration this month: the truly beautiful 'Garden Party' Kit from Sahin Designs, as the inspiration kit. It's a wonderful mix of neutrals and it feels so different to the colorful 'summer' kits that are often released for July.

Neutrals isn't something I'm usually drawn to, but when I seen the inspiration I knew that I wanted the My Mind's Eye Gingham Farm as my base to my kit :) From there I raided my color drawers Brown, Black and White/Creams to round out the kit. So here is my kit for July:
 Playing in the Dirt
I stayed pretty true to the colors of the inspirational kit, with the B&W, Browns and Greens
Here are the papers
 Chose to grab some of the red from the inspirational kit with in the paper and the embellishments. More die cuts in the kit but I do have texture with the wood veneer and the cork alphas.
I grabbed the acrylic paint I had on my desk along with the 6X6 paper pad which will bring in more of that red in the kit as well. Few washi tapes and some puffy stickers to complete my kit :) I see alot of garden pictures scrapped this month. I'm blessed to have a few leftovers from last month that I can bring right into this kit :) Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll join us and create your own version of this inspiration. Now off you go and see what Tracey has curated on her blog

Now, let's see everyone's take on the kit! I'm so excited!
