Imaginisce March Sketch Challenge

Participate in the Imaginisce Sketch Blog Hop and you enter yourself in a drawing for Prize Package ($50+)!!

OK, so I thought I would get in on the handmade flower craze!
These are VERY easy!
And kinda fun too!
Not for those that don't like thick embellishment on their pages though! LOL!
Do a layout using Imaginisce (and this sketch) and you have a chance at Either a I-Top Tool Package or a $75 Prize Package!

Next one in line on the blog hop is Lisa Day!

OH, and this layout was, on Monday, in the TOP 3 on Two Peas in a Bucket's most bookmarked, "liked" AND viewed! WOW!
I have never made it to any of their "Top" anything... Very cool! Not sure how long it will last, but it's cool my layout is hangin' out for the time being next to Jen Jockisch's {Garden Girl} layout!

Sorry I have been a bad blogger! Much to do-never enough time!

I {heart} Imaginisce...

I love being on this design team...
Aside from all the fabulous inspiration on the team...
Working with their products makes me think outside of the box with prints.
I LOVE prints. Patterned Paper is what pulls most of us in... but sometimes it doesn't neccesarily come to me, the moment I see prints, what I should do with it.
This first one, From Scooter's Vacation, I used a Studio Calico Sketch.
I saw a co-worker use this sketch... she even used the red camera paper... I LOVE the large area of printed paper! I USUALLY love "white space" but I usually do it with a solid, like Kraft...

LOVE all the color. Perfect for a layout of a child. :)

Next, I had to use the "water/wave" paper from the from this line. I cut it up a bit.
I SO love this picture of Gavin. It is even on the wall in black and white!
LAST week, while at Delta Phi Scrappa (and yes, I still need to post some pictures from that!)
I got a couple things done with the Lucy Bird. A layout...

and a Kaiser wall-hanging. I LOVE their blanks! Makes projects and gifts that much easier!
LOVE the I-Top for flower centers!!

And some pictures I am working on...
Babies, families... such blessings! I feel SO privileged to take newborn and family photos!
(And lovin' my 5oD too!!!)
That's all for now! I have more-hopefully soon!
