2. After you have visited each Designer's blog come back to My Sketch World blog and let us know what you thought. Part One of the hop ends Monday, December 5th, 11:59 EST.

3. Everyone who posts a comment on each blog will be entered to win! Winners will be randomly chosen.

4. To receive an additional entry, scraplift a layout and link it back to the My Sketch World blog (in your comment) and tell us what inspired you!

5. Have fun! Be inspired! Part Two of this hop begins December 10,2011.

Malin picked the above sketch from Lucy Chesna's Design of layout sketches for me to use for the blog hop. She also added the TWIST.. to use stamps on my project.

So I started with 2 main bigger background stamps .. on the outer edges anticipating the placement of the paper portion of the layout. The other little stamps and the sentiment I added when the rest of the page was already glued down so I could see the necessary placement.

These SPRING papers are from American Crafts. I made the cute little flag, added chipboard flowers and title and accented with Prima pearls bling. The 2 cute butterflies are felt accents. The little strips for journaling are perfect to hand write some details on.

The circle photo is layered with other circles for matting. This of course is done with my Kreaxions Circle Cutter. It is the best tool I ever owned. The border accents are Kreaxions Punched and matted so they pop. I used #309 full punch for full border effect (top one) and the side border punch matted is using #311 with insert A.

Detailed shots to highlight the stamping, 2 of the borders, and pen outlined the dark green print piece and see the cut cluster with felt butterfly and pearls.

This photo is the right top with stamped background, sentiment and butterfly, chipboard title, more pears and the matted border accent.

The bottom left corner highlights the stamped dotted background, owl and heart, the cute flag, felt butterfly, ribbon accent and layered matted circular photo.


I would love for you to leave a comment, become a follower, link to Facebook .. and for everything you do I will give a ballot each possible (3) to a random draw for a RAK from me for my site only.

I am adding inlinkz for anyone that wants an extra ballot .. link your project using the same sketch that I used. Can't wait to see what you come up with

AND I am throwing in a KREAXIONS CIRCLE CUTTER as part of my RAK.

That's a possible 4 ballots if you do everything.. OOOPPPPS.. Do all 4 things and you get 5 ballots. Be sure to tell me in your comment all that you did for ballots.

Many thanks for visiting and happy scrapping.

**If you started here be sure to go back to the beginning HERE: My Sketch World **

You don't want to miss out on any of the fun, ballots, prizes and the amazing and inspiring sketches and projects.
