Some Old Pages

Well, as most of you probably know, Basic Grey is having a DT call. Any of you that have known me for very long will remember that BG was my very first, favorite manufacturer! My nickname over at back in 2005-2008 was "the basic grey queen", LOL~~~

I haven't decided whether or not to try for this, I usually don't have much luck with these things, but I'm throwing the idea around. I know there will be many who do apply and I wish you all luck. It did get me to browsing through my old pages and I thought that I would share a few of my favorites!!! Now keep in mind, some of these, in fact most, are pretty old and my style was way different then, lol!!!

TCR #70 & Echo Park

I got to do a sample for the store (EMI) with Echo Park's Victoria Gardens and the paper is lucious! I am loving the designs and colors in this collection!!! I used this for the palette for the challenge at The Color Room this week.

August 1st Sketch for "Once Upon A Sketch"

I am so excited!!! It's my first sketch with Once Upon A Sketch since joining the design team. I am so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful team. Nadia has awesome sketches and is sure to inspire you! Here is the next challenge!


Journalling Criteria: Finish this line "A PERFECT DAY IS....." . Your journalling has to be at least2 lines long, and with the theme of a whatever a perfect day for you is or a perfect day that you have had already e.g. a birthday, a holiday, a childhood memory, a wedding day, graduation day etc. Your journalling can be ANY type : handwritten, typed, etc...

You MUST combine our journalling criteria with this sketch...
And, here is my take on the challenge! I used Webster's Pages Yacht Club papers. My perfect day is any day spent at the beach!!!! I used WorldWin cardstock (black) that's the only cardstock that I use if possible. I used acrylic paint behind the paper for a beachy feel to the page.

The sponsors for this challenge are Tidbitz in TIme, Pretty Paper Petals and Crate Paper. Please go and check out the sketch, the wonderful prizes and all of the fabulous DT projects at
