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 PageMaps...it 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 COACH...it 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!
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 often...love how these turned out!
