My First Subway Ride and a Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Giveaway

Do you ever just hit a wall with your scrapping?  I admit it, I do.  I would love to say that I don't, but I do.  I think that I "have" to come up with something new or that I really really need to change the sketch so that it looks nothing like the sketch.  It's a habit that I just can't seem to break.  

I have to remember to tell myself that it's OK if I don't do something different every time.  I hit that wall this weekend, but I think it is slowly passing.  I decided to take a "break" probably until late week from creating and then pick back up.  Sometimes that just does the trick.

Wheeee, the weather is turning colder and I am super excited.  That means before long I can drag out the sweaters and snow will be on it's way soon! So different than the way it was in Chicago during July!  

Since I had my first subway experience, I knew it was one I was going to have to scrap!  So, while we were waiting for the subway to come I started snapping pictures.  For the layout, I changed them to black and white, but chances are I may scrap them again in color!  

This is the one page sketch over at Sketch Support this week (One Page Sketch-#14).  I didn't deviate much from it, but did try to liven it up a bit.  These Amy Tangerine papers were perfect and it helps that I had black and white pictures to use for the layout.  And before I forget, we have a product challenge with Simple Stories over at Sketch Support, so I will have another layout with Simple Stories products based on this same sketch!

Supplies - Patterned Paper: American Crafts (Amy Tangerine Collection); Cardstock:American Crafts; Die Cut Embellishments: American Crafts (Amy Tangerine Collection);Journaling Tag: Maya Road; Stamps: Unity Stamp Co. (Just Circles) and Amy Tangerine;Adhesives: Scotch ATG, Fabri Tac and Scrapbook Adhesives; Punches: Martha Stewart;Chipboard Letters: American Crafts Thickers; Stapler: Tim Holtz Stapler; Stitching:Machine

And don't forget that The Twinery and Little Yellow Bicycle have teamed up this week!  There are some prizes, so head over to The Twinery's blog and Little Yellow Bicycle's blog to get all the deets!  My date for my reveal is Thursday and I can't wait!!  So, here is a "peek" of one project that I have done!
