So excited!

My Sketch World is a fantastic blog run by Lucy Chesna.  She is the lady responsible for a lot of the layouts you have seen on my blog in the month of February.  She hosted the sixth annual sketch-a-thon and I completed it for the second year in a row.

At the end of the contest, I noticed that she was having a DT call.  I thought I would apply since I really enjoyed working with her sketches.

The call required 4 layouts, 1 of which had to be newly created.  Here are the layouts I submitted for consideration.

This was my new layout, I also used an older sketch of hers to create it.

Feb 11/12 sketch, thanks to Carolyn Wolff for the title!
Feb 8/12 sketch


I am so thrilled to say that I have been accepted to be part of my first design team!  I can't wait to start, so be on the look out for more of my layouts based on Lucy's great sketches!

Happy Day!

I bought the Product Challenge from Two Scrapbook Friends.  This is a great challenge because in order to qualify, you must use a bit of everything in the kit.  I also used a photo of me on the the layout which matched one of their challenges as well!

Over on My Sketch World, there was a challenge to use a Bingo card on a project.  Perfect!  The kit came with one!

I was finally able to get a better photo of my layout :)

Let's Get Sketchy challenge #1

The new blog Let's Get Sketchy went live this week with their first official challenge.  It was a great sketch and I couldn't wait to play along!

I have to look back and see just how old L was in this picture, but I love the look in her eyes.  I am sure she was up to no good when this was taken!
