1 sketch & 2 give-aways

The second part of being a guest designer for Elles Studio, I got to make a sketch and then scrapbook with it. Sketches are fun, I don't use them often, but I can see how nice it would be to play along with some of the sketch blogs out there.... especially when the mojo is on vacation. :) So, here's the sketch:



and the scrapbook page:



**photo credit goes to Elsie F. who took this super photo of a girlfriends daughter. Molly and my Alaina have been long distance pen-pals for the past 3 years. :) We've since had many conversations about having her visit and vice-versa. Some day!!

Since I had such great luck working with all of the Elles Studio products, I thought I would give away what managed to not be opened. I'm seriously the worlds messiest scrapper, and I have to open everything and then scatter it all over my table, just so I can see what I have to work with. :) I'll choose 2 names on Monday, 1 for the girly set of tags, and one for the boyish set.







Good luck!!
