Sketch~N~Scrap Guest Designer

So it's bad enough when you do something stupid, but it's even worse when you do something stupid for everyone to witness. I've been blogging for four years so I really do have the basics down...really. I knew that last week was going to be crazy with spring break so I made a point of writing up the below post well in advance and scheduled it to go live this past Saturday. I was so proud of myself for being right on top of things. Nope. I got onto my blog today to write up a new post and saw that it had never published. Apparently I chose "save" and not "publish", so here it was sitting as a draft for the last week. Niiiice. So I offer a sincere apology to the ladies over at Sketch~N~Scrap who were kind enough to offer me a guest designer spot this month. And I encourage all of you to head over to their blog because even though I'm posting this a few days late, you still have until the end of the month to play along.

I'm Guest Designing over at Sketch~N~Scrap for the month of March and this is my layout for the second half of the month. Here's the fun sketch I had to work with...

And here's my take on it...
This page came together so easily. I just used some paint and a mask on cardstock to create my own background paper and then used some paper scraps and border stickers behind the photos. I love sketches like this that help me use up my smaller scraps!

Thanks for looking...please head over to Sketch~N~Scrap to see what their talented Design Team has done with this sketch!
