Welcome to the Sketch Support Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Sketch Support blog hop!  We have been wanting to do a blog hop for awhile, but we were trying to find a time to do it.  Finally, we all agreed that this was it!  And I have a prize for you also!

We all worked with a one page sketch, but it can easily be converted to a two-page or a card.  Here is the sketch that Allison gave us to work with.........

So, if you have been here before, you know I like to change the sketch.  It is rare that I do the sketch exactly!  What I came up with isn't exactly how I started, but it's how I ended up!


Supplies:  Pattern Paper-Bo Bunny (Ad Lib); Stickers-Bo Bunny (Ad Lib); Letters-Bo Bunny and American Crafts; Twine-The Twinery Baker's Twine; Punch-Fiskars;
Adhesives-Scotch ATG and Fabri-tac


Some close-ups of the tags.  I just used manila tags and covered them 
with the pattern paper.

I added some of the tiny stickers in the collection to the pictures as accents.


Allison also wanted us to answer some questions, since you are getting to know us!

How long have I been scrapbooking?  
3 1/2 years!

Why did I start scrapbooking?            
It started because of Nikki Sivils and just GREW from there!

Favorite time of day to scrapbook and how often?
Well, I would have to say at night, because that is usually when I am most creative...I try to scrap at the least 3 times a week, but that is counting a weekend day, where I might scrap all day!

Where do I scrapbook and what does the space look like?
Ha ha, in the front room, I drag out my table!  I set it up between the recliner and the couch and by the front door.  I do have stuff "stored" in a room, but there really isn't enough room to scrap in there and I like being out in the rest of the house!

Favorite thing about sketches?
Well, sometimes I just get stuck!  And that's the truth!  They are a great jumping off point and I rarely follow a sketch exactly, because I want to make it my own! 

Favorite sketch from Sketch Support?
Here is the sketch and my layout that I did for it...I have actually used this sketch twice...I just can't find the other layout! (one page for June 2011)



I am giving away a volume of Sketches for Scrapbooking the one page version, since I am a one page gal!!!!  And I am also throwing in some of The Twinery baker's twine!  I love this stuff and think everyone should have a chance to work with it!

Leave a comment here, but you MUST LEAVE ME A WAY TO CONTACT you......if you do not, then I will pick another winner.  You need to leave me a comment by Sunday night at 11:59 pm.  I will pick the winner on Monday and announce it on Monday night.  (sorry, I am a working gal and that is the quickest I can get to it!)

Here is the hop order and where you should go next.........NOEY'S BLOG
Thanks for hopping along with us!!!
