You Are Awesome {Stuck?! Sketches April 15 challenge}

Our mid-month sketch is up at Stuck?! Sketches! As always, Laura gave us an awesome sketch to work with:

I made another page for one of my students:

Here are some details. Those awesome monsters are from the Fancy Pants Be Different collection. I have a thing for monsters for my scrapbook pages, and they're especially perfect for these child-like pages I'm making for my students. The little shield with the M is, I'm sure, for "monsters," but this particular child's name starts with an M, so it was perfect! I raided my stash for the rest of the stuff on my page. That red paper in the very background is hideous paper by GCD Studios that I was given to work with when I was on the Scrapbook News & Review design team that I don't think I would ever have used, but it matched the red in the monsters and only a little of it shows, so it worked out perfectly.

Those little sketchy plus signs are from a Carabelle Studio stamp. So fun! I used texture paste and a stencil by The Crafter's Workshop in the background. 

To the bottom cluster, I added some smaller monsters from the 6 x 6 pad and some odds and ends from my stash--enamel dots, wood veneer, brads, labels. That little Basic Grey brad with the Roman number IV was perfect because I teach 4th grade.

Come play with us for a chance to win prizes from our generous sponsors or to become a future guest designer.

Be sure to come check out what the rest of the team made with this sketch.
