Love Me Some New Basic Grey! contest

So I love PageMaps! & I occasionally have a chance to enter the contests on the PageMaps blog...& look what is up for grabs!!!

Aren't these Basic Grey papers so fun! There will be TWO winners chosen for this contest. :) One prize is a Lemonade 6x6 paper pad and coordinating Pops (the coolest dimensional stickers I've ever seen), and another prize is a June Bug 6x6 paper pad and a package of coordinating Take Note (gorgeous, full color transparencies and matching journaling die-cuts).

So what do you have to do??? Just use this PageMap sketch to create a layout of your own...anyway you like it! and link it to the blog post...

Well, I have lots of goodies from the Scrapbook Circle June kit that I thought would be perfect for photos from our stay in San Diego last summer, specifically in Old Town. That part of San Diego is so colorful!!!

So here's my entry for the PageMaps blog contest: OLD TOWN

The first thing I did was flip the sketch upside down...(I love rotating or flipping sketches so that they work with the photos or embellies that I have!)

& here are some fun close ups...the owl is by Sassafrass and was in the May Scrapbook Circle kit and the journaling spot is chipboard by Sassafrass and is in the June Scrapbook Circle kit!

I'm lovin' the Bazzill Edges in Lime...

& finally, this is a whole pile of fun embellies...some from my stash, & some from the June Scrapbook Circle kit!
