Well, one of the reasons I started a blog was so I could enter some scrapbooking contests (I have a friend who is on approximately 84 design teams). Maybe I am exaggerating just a little, but she's on A LOT of them.
Anyhoo, I found the May Guest Design Team challenge over on Sketchy Thursdays. You have to check this site out---what a great place it is---anytime you are short on inspiration, there is a sketch for you! So the challenge is this: They give you a layout sketch, and you interpret it your way...
Here is the sketch.
Sketchy Thursdays sketch. I used a crumpled up paper towel to rag beige paint all over the paper. I used glimmer mist (hard to see!). I also had some stickers that I got in a kit that I liked, but didn't LOVE, and I forced myself to use them. I gathered a ribbon together to look like a ruffle using a sewing machine. I also don't think of myself as a person that uses lots of blues, but I sure did here! And, I used an old earring. Can you find it? Here it is:
Here is another close-up:
So here's the deal: I'm on my way to submit this layout. If I win, I will be ecstatic! If I don't, I will still be ecstatic...why? Because I am now a blogger who actually enters contests!!! And my blog has four followers (Thanks to my girls). This is a pretty big deal for me!
Ok---I'll be back in a few days with another layout. Does anyone know of any other good contests? I've got contest fever! Until next time,
