This week's sketch 4-24-13

For this week the sketch at Let's Scrap was a card sketch.


 I choose to turn my card into a layout.  I choose a heritage theme and used this fabulous photo from the 1940's of my Great Uncle Louis.  A treasure to have received and to preserve.  My uncle is the one on the left.

Question of the Week (QOTW)

I also had the privilege of asking a question to the members for this week's QOTW.

Happy Monday everyone!  I am happy to be a part of the DT this term and have a burning question to put out there to all you very creative and talented scrappers .

Do you scrap a title page for your books?
What kind of pages do you do, journal or pictures?
Do you use a Lets Scrap layout ?

Wow...I received quite a few replies with varied answers.  Some do not do title pages, some do for special albums and some do for all albums.  Quite a mixture of styles out there.

What kind of title pages do you do?

Here is the layout I did from a Let's Scrap sketch (11-25-09) for my 2012 family album.  It represents all the fun and special things that went on during 2012.  For this sketch I choose to use digi and used the right side of the sketch.


Inspiration of the Week (IOTW)

So...it was my turn to pick the IOTW at Let's Scrap. 

This is the very important job of choosing what layout you found gave you inspiration for that week.  Well...this turned out to be harder than I thought but then I came across this fabulous layout by Janet Musto, Grungy Style. 

I love the layering, the flower clustering (and the fact that the flowers are or look handmade) and the bows tie it all together.  I also like that the picture kind of pops out for me.

Kudos Janet for inspiring me with your lovely layout!

Let's Scrap DT

Yeah...I have been chosen as a Design Team member for Let's Scrap for the next 4 months!  I am enjoying my new job and my new title!  So many layouts, so many challenges and NSD hasn't even started yet.  There will be 31 days of scrappin' fun for the month of May.  Go ahead...log in and join us for the fun.  You won't be disappointed!

Here is my first layout as DT from this fabulous sketch.  I used the right side and flipped it.


I Love this Bar & Grill
