Are You up for a Challenge?

There’s a sketch challenge going on over at the Scrap Play
Blog. I love sketches to jump start my creativity when I’m feeling stuck; whenever I see a sketch I love I jot it down in my “ideas binder” or I save the photo in a sketch folder on my PC. The sketch for Scrap Play's challenge is below, along with my version. You can see I changed the number of photos by replacing the 2 horizontals with 1 vertical. I think that’s the best part of sketches, there’s always room for your own interpretation! Ready to give it a try? Submit your layout to scrapplay@gmail.com by Friday, July 2nd and you could win a set of Autumn Leaves alphabet stamps! (Open to US residents only)

Scrapping Daddy!!

My first assignment with Scrap Play is to create a father-themed layout/project, and I had the PERFECT photo waiting to be played with! Last year my little E was a flower girl in a friend's wedding, and I got this wonderful photo of my daughter and husband together, both dressed up and looking so sweet together! (and if you know my husband, you know that capturing a photo of him dressed up is a very rare opportunity!) I can’t post the layout I created just yet, but you can go here to check it out once it is posted on the Scrap Play blog!

And speaking of father-themed pages, I have created a few other layouts that capture those feelings about just how great my husband is as a dad, here are a couple of my favs! =)T

Playing with “Scrap Play”!

Just got the word that I’ve been chosen to be a design team member for Scrap Play, a blog that features affordable layouts with prominent color photos! My design team “term” will run from June 15-September 15, 2010 and I’ll be designing one layout each week in response to an assigned topic, sketch, etc. So excited for my first assignment, here are 2 of the layouts that I submitted for the design team call, I’ll be sure to post updates on my assignments soon! =) T
