Sketch It To Me Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sketch It To Me Blog Hop! If you have been hopping along with us you have seen some fantastic layouts and projects by some very talented ladies. If you haven't been, you can go to Amanda's blog to start off at the beginning:.

So as I am sure you have figured out, this blog hop is all about the sketch!! We were given a wonderful sketch by Ms. Amanda and asked to make a layout and card from the sketch. Here is the sketch she created for us



Here is the layout I made...


I switched it up a little bit to work with the photos I wanted to use. The journaling tickets are to cover up a mistake, but I actually really like the way they look on there.Used quite a mixture of products here, a little Echo Park, American Crafts, Crate Paper, KI Memories, My Mind's Eye...just a hodge podge of everything. :)

I also made a card from the sketch. I am not a card maker, at all!! So I kept it very clean and simple (maybe too simple) I used for my inspiration the little cluster at the left hand corner.
Here is my card...

Sorry for the crooked picture...I forgot to get a picture, so was trying to rush and get one taken and posted.

Everyone who leaves a comment here today is automatically entered to win the RAK that Amanda put together for you...lots of MME yumminess!! :)

If you become a follower and leave me a comment telling me you are, if you were already a follower leave me a comment too,  then you will also be entered to win here!!

I have been showing you sneak peeks for awhile now, so you know there is major goodies to be had!! I am giving away a $20 gift certificate to Design by Diana.
A gorgeous shop on Etsy that is owned and operated by the amazing Diana Fisher, a lot of you know her as the founder of Sketchy Thursdays, Scrapbook Circle design team...I could go on and on about the talent this sweet lady has!

 You should definitely go check out her blog  especially since Diana, being the sweetie that she is, has a little something special for all you hoppers that head over her way!!

Now, on to the next blog of Ms. Laura to see her amazing take on this sketch!!

Have a blessed weekend!! :)

What a great take on the sketch for your LO! I love the journaling blocks in a little row across the page.
A CAS card like yours works great with all patterned paper and colours you have used. It will make someone feel very special.
Thanks for sharing! :)

I have to follow you to see what you come up with next! Great hop!
