Studio Calico PageMaps Sketch Contest!!!

Hi all! Just getting this posted @ the wire...hmmm...ever since school fired back up, all of that "ME" time that I had enjoyed during the summer has completely disappeared...LOL! But my Sept. Kit from Scrapbook Circle arrived at the post office on Friday...so I got to play & create this weekend!!! If you haven't checked out Scrapbook Circle, you really should. Lisa puts together the most amazing kits---all with the latest & greatest scrapbook goodies! Last I heard, there were only a few September kits available!!!


So here's the PageMap sketch for the Calico Studio contest (along with the goodies up for grabs!!!):









and here's my take: "this moment"





















The sketch called for a 5x7 photo, but I didn't have any photo paper at home that size, so I decided to print the photo onto cardstock...I think it supports the "vintage" feel of the layout :o) Plus I played with the Picaso photo editing software & created a B & W image with a soft color focus on the hunting vest...so cool...

and a few closeups:




Aren't those Jenni Bowlin mini circle alphas just the cutest??? Love 'em!


and the Pink Paislee Amber Road Borderlines Clear stickers are gorgeous!


As always, Becky Fleck's PageMaps are so fun to work with!
