Things Are Getting Sketchy

Recently, I heard about a blog and online scrapbooking store called "Paper Issues". They carry all my favorite brands, have coupons, and their blog has sketches! I love sketches. They really help when my creative juices aren't there. Even when my pages don't turn out exactly like the sketch (which I usually prefer anyways) it helps by giving me a jumping off point. This month I participated in their Saturday sketch challenge. Here's their sketch...

And here's my page...


 There are a few obvious differences; I only used one photo and have two rows of squares instead of three, but I was really inspired by their sketch. I kept the stitched lines, the basic grid concept, and the title's in the same spot. I've had this photo since last September and wanted to make sure it ended up on a pretty page since it's me with my favorite three (soon to be four) year old. The paper is Maggie Holmes' 'Flea Market' line. I love the pink, mint, and gold together.

I'm hoping this will lead to me scrapbooking more regularly. Whether it's on my own, with friends, or at a retreat next month. I hate when life gets in the way of me being crafty. ;)
