& the winner is...PLUS a PageMaps contest :o)

Hope you all had a great time visiting the Scrapbook Circle Design Team blogs during the Scrapbook Circle Blog Hop yesterday! Lots of great inspiration out there, huh? I am always blown away by what all of the other designers create...& we each have our own "style" that shows just how versatile the monthly kits @ Scrapbook Circle are!

So...enough of me rambling! the winner of my little scrappy prize is:


Congrats!!! For a list of all of the winners from the blog hop, be sure & check the Scrapbook Circle Blog!

Now, for the PageMaps Blog sketch contest! I love creating layouts using is a NO FAIL way to scrap! Gotta love that!

So here is the sketch:

I chose to create a 12 x 12 layout featuring a picture of my son, Jeremy, & his multi-tasking skills....the cool thing about this layout is that the photo was taken in July 2009, but the journaling is about a goofy conversation he had with his coach in November 2009. & NO, HE DID NOT CALL HIS was just a goofy conversation...I think this layout is super fun...Jeremy, on the other hand, thinks otherwise. I told him "I'm the mom, I can do whatever I want!" LOL!

This layout was quite a challenge for me because I wanted to use the December Kit "Reindeer Games" from Scrapbook Circle; well, it was full of Christmas themed papers & embellishments...but I think it turned out just fine!

HEY coach:

and here's a close up of the title; using my two favorite alpha letters: Jillibean Soup Corrugated Kraft Alpha & Making Memories tiny alpha!!! This is the first time I have inked the Jillibean Soup alpha; LOVE the result!

I hand cut & layered these stars, then topped with a button & tied with embroidery thread. I think I must use stars more how these turned out!

Supplies: PP-Crate Paper-North Pole Collection-Sleigh Bells, Snow & Pine, PP-Basic Grey-Eskimo Kisses-Woodland, Crate Paper North Pole Collection-Chipboard Accents, Jillibean Soup Corroguated Kraft Alpha (Nov kit), Making Memories tiny alpha black on white (Aug kit), Button (Aug kit), Kraft journaling card (Nov kit)

My stash: Martha Stewart journaling pen, machine stitching, Stampin' Up ink-Real Red, Offray Ribbon-Sheer Petit Dot Brown, staples

Thanks for stopping by! Take care!
