The Artist in Me


Supplies : Pattern Paper by Scenic Route; Orange paper (Enchanted), CS, and Friendship Alpha Stamp Set by CTMH; Journaling prompt and transparency by My Minds Eye; Thickers letter stickers by American Crafts

This page was made using the sketch for the Think Pink Pagemaps challenge on Becky's Blog to use this sketch and scrap about something meaningful to you. Art has always been very rewarding for me and since I don't have any scrapbook pages about just me, this felt like a very meaningful layout for me to make to start out my own album. I hope one day when my girls are older they can see this and go "Yup, that's Mom... always creating!" ^_~

I just got these papers 2 days ago, lol. Robert's was having one of their great 40% off all pattern paper sales so I had to pick me up some of these wonderful graphic Scenic Route papers. Only problem is when I got home I wasn't sure how I was going to use them. I kept looking at them going "I love these but what do I do with them?!" lol Either I just didn't have my thinking cap on or I'm a nut, the latter probably being the most probably case ^_~ Anyway, this sketch provided the perfect solution for this paper, at least in my mind :D I got to showcase the kraft paper design and use some of the matching regular pattern paper without compromising journaling or pictures. I kept the layout very simple to not take away from the graphic on the kraft paper which I just love! Besides all the flowers I added made the layout look wrong and then more wrong, lol. Anyway, thanks for stopping by! If you want to play Becky's got the challenge going until the 27th. Even if you don't play for the challenge it's a great sketch so check it out!

Good for you for getting a page done about yourself! I love the papers and LO. I thought you stamped or created the flowers before I read your comments. :-) I love Scenic Route! -Kim P

Hi :-) Love your LO. The color combi & choice of PP is so soothing and pleasing to the eyes. Love the flower at the side. Is is a rub on?
