Authentique Paper Sketch Challenge: Trick or Treat 2011

I discovered the most AMAZING paper company today: Authentique! They have BEAUTIFUL papers & coordinating embellies and an amazing mission. They talk about their mission on their facebook page, saying they strive "to promote the belief [that] being genuine is the only way to live!" I LOVE that, so I had to check out their website, blog, and other paper collections. (I bought their Halloween collection, "Glowing," online.) Well, I was not disappointed! They have gorgeous papers!! I have fallen in love with their Journey collection too! I cannot wait to get it. You will certainly be seeing more creations from me using Authentique's beautiful, quality papers!

Also, they had a sketch challenge on their blog, which you can check out here. The challenge was to use the following sketch and Authentique products to make a layout.

This is the layout I made using Authentique Paper's Glowing collection and a picture of my ADORABLE nieces Mak and Gia in their Halloween costumes last month:

  • Authentique Paper: Glowing Collection "Music Notes" Paper
  • Authentique Paper: Glowing Collection "Black Script" Paper
  • Authentique Paper: Glowing Collection "Diction" Journaling Stickers
