A House of Cards

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

School is back in session...

and am I a bad mom because I am enjoying the peace and quiet? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my kids and I love them being around, but I was so ready for a break. I think they are happy being back in school and hanging out with their friends too. So, it's all good. ;)

You are all a fan of Janelle Richmond's Sketch This blog sketches, right? (Me too!) Well, you may not know this, but Janelle is on the Magistical Memories design team, and she has a sketch challenge over at the Magistical Memories message board. Twice a month she posts a new sketch. The fun part is that if you create a project using the sketch and post it over at Magistical Memories on the sketch challenge thread and in the gallery, you will be entered into a drawing to win free chipboard. What could be more fun than that!

Check out Janelle's sketch here. (If you are not a member of the message board, you may need to register.) If you want to play along, post your creation by August 15th. If you don't have time for this one, make sure to check back on the August 16th for the new sketch.

I got a chance to play this time around and this is what I came up with:


I used the new Expression Blurb chipboard set. I just love the fun, layered shapes!

I also recently made this little baby card using the Lil Elephant chipboard by Magistical Memories. I made a plaid giraffe not too long ago, and I thought he could use a "little plaid friend". ;)


Speaking of Janelle, she also has a new sketch up over at the Sketch This blog this week. There is lots of great inspiration on how to use the sketch too by Sketch This design team. Come check it out. Hope you get a chance to play along!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I really appreciate all of the comments you post. You are all so sweet! Hugs!
