Time To Ride & Giveaway!

I am back......did you miss me! I was in Chicago for a trade show and then off on holidays for a week and did not have internet access at the cottage we rented (which was a good thing for me, but a bad thing for my blog). I have some catching up to do.

Last week on the Sketch Support website they featured the July one-page sketch. Allison Davis has just released her first Sketches for Scrapbooking - One Page Sketches book and I have one to give away! All you have to do is leave a comment on this thread by Sunday, August 7th and I will do a random draw for the winner and post it on Monday, August 8th!

This one-page sketch is actually from the new book! You can visit the Sketch Support website and download your very own copy to print out.
one-pageJULY 2011

Here is my version of this sketch. I used the July Product Challenge kit from Two Scrapbook Friends and combined it with the sketch.

Time To Ride

I added some cardstock letters that I had in my own supplies to create part of my title. The little jelly embellishment that I used to dot my letter 'I' was part of the challenge kit.

I also found these tree stickers that were left over from a card that I had made. They worked perfectly with the other materials and the photos that I had picked out.

Time To Ride 5

I love bakers twine and used it to tie around one of the smaller photos on my layout.

Time To Ride 3

For my journaling I used some very tiny alpha stickers. You need to use tweezers to put these on straight. I still need to look up the year that we went to Centre Island and add it to the strip.

  4. Great layout. I love the tiny letters.
    I always do 2 page layouts because I really struggle with one pagers. Winning a copy of this new book would certainly give me a great starting point..

  6. Carolyn, another wonderful layout that brings back memories of my own trip to centre island with my family probably circa 1979? Same log ride and same jaw dropping laughter, I can feel the spray on my face ( or should I say the back of my neck? As I ducked and uncle Brian got wet LOL) thanks for the give away . I am a one pager these days and this would be an amazing prize :-)
