Three Challenges and an Award

It's sketch number 16 over at SOUS www.stuckonusketches.blogspot.com - can't believe I'm still managing to keep up with them - this one is a cracker......

The sketch is by Liz Qualman - designed exclusively for SOUS.....

My layout also qualifies for two more challenges.....


Frosted Designs www.frosteddesigns.blogspot.com to use Polka Dots & Plaid.....


And, if the shoe fits...SCRAP IT! www.iftheshoefitsscrapit.blogspot.com Mad for Plaid.....



I have used Sassafras Lass Serendpity papers 'Whale of a Time' Collection. Prima flowers and American Crafts brads.....


Cricut - large cardstock circle at 11" George, smaller paper circle at 10.5" George and swirls at 6" Stretch Your Imagination.....


Really had fun with this sketch, and when I saw the challenges at the other blogs I immediately thought of these Sassafras papers and my DGD Rebekah in her wee shorts at King's Park, Perth, last March. The blue circle and the blue slide tube she is sitting in was a complete fluke, not a deliberate design choice - I'm not that smart - love how it turned out.....
During my blog hopping, I came across a card that has been entered for 24, yes 24, challenges, is that a record - I have noticed one challenge block stating that an entry can only be placed in a maximum of 10 challenge blogs - should this be a way to go...... Your thoughts?


Now for an award.....




The beautiful Nanne over at www.nannes-creations.blogspot.com has honoured me with this award, and I am delighted to receive it.....
The Rules.....

* Put the logo on your blog or within your post

* Pass the award onto 6 bloggers who are followers of your blog

Thus I pass it on to.....





Thank you again Nanne xx

I think that's me for now.....

Hugs

Jane xx

Great page. Such vibrant papers that look awesome together. Love the bright blue flowers and how the blue pops off the rest of the colors...
so about the challenge restraints, well I guess I understand maybe a little..its like you've got one brad on your card and you submit your project into 15 challenges to get in and win candy...thats my only thought about that.
otherwise I think its neat to do it and have thought about trying out at other challenges and would have to combine some because I don't have the time...
I guess I understand both!
Congrats on the award too!

Oh Jane! This layout is just perfect! The photos and the colors are so great together (I'm not believing that you didn't plan that!) and the profusion of blue speckled flowers - well, that brought a huge grin to my tired face!

Thank you also for the sweet award - I'm stunned and flattered! You are so special - I enjoy your scrapbooking talents so much and you have shared so much of your life with me - through the stories. I am the one blessed. Truly!

Hugs!
