Getting some scrapbook pages done!!

I've been so busy making cards lately, that I'm starting to miss scrapbooking!  I was able to spend some great time scrapbooking this week, and it felt so great, definitely going to keep the balance!

You all know how much I love to use sketches for inspiration, one of the scrapbook sketch sites I love is Sketch N Scrap.  They are looking for design team members right now, and with the Heart 2 Heart Challenges design team coming to an end, this is the perfect time!  Here is a layout I created based on the Sketch N Scrap DT call, the left page is the DT sketch and the right is the companion page I came up with for the other two pictures in this series and the journaling.

 I was also inspired by the current Moxie Fab World Challenge and found a cool new use for the CTMH burlap ribbon. I used it to stamp the background behind the title and I also used some strands pulled from it to wrap around the first letters in the title to make them stand out.  Small touches, but effective I think.

The paper used is one of my current CTMH favourites, Avonlea!


  1. That burlap ribbon looks very cool, love that look and how creative to use it on your letters! Fab idea! Thanks for joining our DT call!

  2. The small touches can be so very creative though! I love the burlap ribbon too on the letters. So fun that you created a 2 page layout with the sketch. Thanks for joining us in the DT call at Sketch N Scrap. :)

  3. Dorothy, I love your layout!

    I saw it first in Google Reader where you posted it on the Heart 2 Heart blog, but when I went to that blog, your entire post was not there. I'm glad you had your blog address on the layout's photo, because that's how I found it posted here on your blog! Don't know why it's not showing on H2H... hmmm.

  4. Cute. Love the way you flipped it and made it a two pager.
