C'est Magnifique June Sketch Challenge~!

Hello and welcome! Today I'm happy to reveal to you the June Sketch Challenge from C'est Magnifique~! I've created a sample for the challenge again this month, using the June Kit "Dream in Pastel". The past couple of projects that I've shared have been a little bit on the girly side. So today I'm going to go masculine with a layout featuring my oldest, Wyatt :)

You can easily go feminine or masculine with this kit and I love that, being a mom to 2 boys and 1 girl. The hot air balloon from Blue Fern Studios was a perfect fit for this boy page created for my oldest son. Every day he seems to get older- smarter- constantly wanting to learn about everything. It's truly amazing watching his imagination soar!

 {to dress up my Blue Fern Studios "Grand Balloon" piece, I first painted it with gesso. Next, I used various stamps and some black archival ink to create the varying stamped patterns. I then misted randomly with some Tattered Angels "Blue Skies" and "Sun Sisters" glimmer mists before dusting on some clear embossing powder and blasting it with my heat gun.}

From the Flower Add-On:
Prima: : Merci: Pastel Mix
Prima: Giselle: Haze
Petaloo: Mixed Blossoms: Soft Pink

From the Embellishment Add-On:
BoBunny: C’est La Vie: Trinkets

Here is this month's sketch:

C'est Magnifique will be offering two prizes, awarded randomly to participants in our Sketch Challenge.  The first prize is this beautiful assortment of paper, embellishments, and chipboard that Leslie has put together.  The winner of this prize package will also be able to shop in the C'est Magnifique Store, and have their purchases sent with the prize package, so that means you won't have to pay for shipping.

Our second prize, a $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store,  will be awarded randomly to one of our participants who obviously uses one of our kits to create their Sketch Challenge layout. 
We will also chose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
You have the entire month of May to submit your layout.
What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1.  You must be a follower of the C'est Magnifique blog.  It's easy to become follower -see the left sidebar.

2.  Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to the C'est Magnifique Sketch Challenge post using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the page.

We look forward to seeing your layouts!
