SOUS sketch #58

I loved the latest sketch over at Stuck On U Sketches, and came up with this layout of DGD Rebekah in 2009. She was 2....


The sketch, by Liz Qualman....


Using my Lime Tart June 2011 Full Tart....


Papers are Girl's Paperie "Vintage Whimsy"


Flowers are Prima and my stash...


Alphas are Webster's Pages and American Crafts Thickers....


The wee journal stamp is from Autumn Leaves....


I cut the bunting on Cricut using 'Carousel' cartridge at 4 inches....


Too cute......

Now for something interesting - with reference to the beautiful award I received from Nanne, and previous awards I have received - do you ever wonder where they come from???

I decided to investigate.....

I followed the award backwards (KWIM) to its origin - authors.....

They award each other upon the publishing of new novels (saw a few familiar names)and guess what - they had to send it on to 15 (FIFTEEN!!!!!) other authors - thank goodness it was 8 by the time it got down to us scrapbookers....LOL

I did discover a lot of new blogs on my travel back in time - there are a LOT of blogs out there - it was fun, but time consuming....

Off to a class at Inspired Crafts tonight, by fellow DT member Mandy - love her style....

Hugs for now

oh my gosh...this is sooooo sweet! there is something simple about it but the details all totally perfect and the colors, the neutral w/ the bright accents! I totally dig!
I just did a page today of my little guy...he just turned 2...such a fun age!

so that's cool about your blog travels. I went through some the other day and made a list of real inspiration blogs for me, instead of following them and having my blog list bogged down. amazing how many sites there are..not even time in the day, huh?

hope your having a wonderful day!!!!!
