Sketch Inspiration #120

I really love the sketches over at sketch inspiration . This weeks sketch was no exception!

Here's the sketch:

And here's the awesome prize for the randomly drawn winner, I've always wanted a kit from Studio Calico, I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

And here's my interpretation:

I've been hoarding these october Afternoon papers for so long, I was happy to finally cut into them. I love the way stitching looks on layouts, but I have to drag my machine from the garage, thread it, and pray that it doesn't jam (but it usually does). So rub-on stitching is the next best thing I've found. Could you tell it was rub-ons??

Thanks for looking!!

First post!

Well, here I am. I am starting my official scrapbooking blog. At first I thought that no one would read a blog about scrapbooking, but I've fallen in love with so many other wonderful scrapping blogs, so I figured why not!

I'm going to start off by sharing a layout that I did for the Backporch Memories guest designer contest. I have applied for this every month for the past maybe 7 months....a little pathetic huh? For some reason I just can't give up, they give away one of their awesome monthly kits to the winner, and I really I enjoy the sketches they use.

"POP" goes Chloe

I know Girl Friday by Cosmo Cricket is nothing new, but I could never get my hands on any until Michael's finally decided to carry some. So yes, it's new to me, and I just love the colors and patterns in this line!

So the competitive person in me probably won't allow me to give up on this contest until I win. I will keep you posted.....
