Update on the Sketch-a-thon......

at My Scraps and More. I am having a ball with this! It has been the most that I have scrapped consecutively, in, um, EVER! I never bothered much with sketched before, but now I am hooked. It's awesome to see so many different takes on the same sketch. I do need to learn that I can mix it up a little, that's the whole point, it doesn't have to be exactly like the sketch. Some people rotate the sketches, and add upon what is already in the sketch. Anyway, there is no right or wrong, so that makes it even more fun!!

So, here are some of my favorite sketched and the layouts I did with them. We are at Day 18 now so I won't show all of them :)

Found the winner of my blog candy...

She is a member at A Cherry on Top forum where I am a regular member. We often do not know people's real names as we go by "board names" so I had to post on a couple of boards until I found her. I am so glad that I did so I can send this little package to her. I hope you enjoy Donna!

First Ever Crop Circles Blog Hop!!!!

Welcome to the first ever Crop Circles blog hop!! We are a group of creative ladies from Newfoundland, Canada who share their passion for scrapbooking and find all kinds of inspiration and motivation from each other. Most of us are either Newfoundlanders or have a tie of some sort to the Island. We thought we would share our creations and inspiration with you! Everyone participating has done a layout based on a sketch at www.sketchbook365.com- you will see our many different styles and takes on the same sketch. You have until end of day March 3rd to complete this hop! For every comment you leave along the way your name will be entered to win a Stampin' Up bundle valued at $50. You'll also have chances to win some blog candy along the way from individual bloggers.

I will make a random draw at the end of the blog hop for a prize of some Prima goodies from comments on my blog. This is so exciting!!!

Here is my take on the sketch......

                                                          sketchbook365: March Challenge

I just finished it and it is late at night, so the light was not good for taking pictures. I will retake it tomorrow. I used My Mind's Eye "Follow your Heart" papers, the wooden tag, alphas and sticker words are Prima, doily is from Bo Bunny, banners and ABC sticker are Pink Paislee. The couple of other little things are from my stash. I also used Mementos's "rich cocoa" ink for inking edges, and the reinforcers on the tags are Tim Holtz.

Thanks for playing along! Maybe you could follow my blog if you don't already ;)
