**Okay, so we have a winner. You are all quick. Melissa, I have your addy. Thanks for noticing that I added the Tim Holtz "Destiny" metal tag under the photo. Thanks to everyone for playing!**
I made two new layouts today, one from a sketch and a lift. The first one is for the sketch of the week for the Memory Makers Forum. The talented Alanna shared her first sketch and it inspired this:
I am actually pleasantly surprised by how much I like the end result because when I started, I have to admit, I wasn't feeling it. Then bit by bit, it came together. Yes, those are my siblings, hence the title.
Second layout of the day is a lift from Amy Parker who was published with a very cute layout in this month's Scrapbook Trends. It features a photo of my nephew Alex that I have been wanting to scrap since I saw it. I kept it in my stash of photos to scrap, but each time I pulled it out, it wasn't right. Until today.
The funniest thing is that I showed this to dear Hubby and he said, "It actually turned out good." Actually? ACTUALLY!?!?! As in you are surprised that it is good? As in compared to all that other crap you have created so far, I had little faith in your abilities, but this layout is actually good? I realize that isn't what he meant and that maybe I am a bit moody because I haven't eaten since this morning. Just maybe.
Okay and last but not least, the contest. I am re-posting my "Home Girls" layout from yesterday. One because it is a better picture in regards to color and two, I made a small change to the layout. It is obvious and the first person to leave me a comment naming what it is that is different, I will send a little RAK to.
I am also leaving the original version up, so this is a lot like those matching games we used to play in our color books.
