Sketch Challenge and More........

A New Year, a new sketch at Just Scrappin' for the card section. If you'd like to join in on using this sketch please post your creation in the comment section here or come on over to JS and meet your new friends!!!

Here's the sketch I created for January:


And here is the card I made from it:


If you post your card creation in the forum at JS where my sketch is featured you will be entered into a random drawing for a scrappy prize at the end of the month. You have until 1/31/09, midnight, CST to get your card posted.

I did finish one other challenge today, so far, but it was a time consuming one!! I actually managed to combine 3 challenges from 3 different places in this one LO!!! So, here is the LO then I'll tell you about the challenges:



My darling Rob………you are my heart, my soul, my life. I do believe I am the luckiest woman on this planet to be blessed with your love. Through all the trials and tribulations life throws at us, our love does not waiver. Even though our love is not new, it will last til the end of time.

The first challenge was over at Just Scrappin'. We had to create a layout with flowers on it but NOT any old flowers, hand made flowers!!

The second challenge was over at Dreamgirls and you had to create a LO that was completely black and white with the only touch of color being a hand made embellishment - my ribbon flowers - and the word new in the title or journaling.

The third challenge was over at Treasured Scrapbooking where we had to use a clock prominently on the layout and the word time in the title or journaling. If you notice the clock is set to 7:19 (well pretty close) - that is the official first date that Rob and I had.

I was pretty thrilled when I actually pulled this one off!!! As always, thanks for stopping by - leave me a comment and let me know what you like or dislike about my work or just to say hi!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Those frogs are just about the cutest little guys.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
