Stacy - You are here

I really loved this Pagemaps sketch that we are using for the sketch challenge! I decided to make my layout using a photo of my brother and sister that I took while on Spring Break in Oklahoma. We threw a combination Easter party and 11th Birthday party for my son, Quinn. It was a gorgeous day and we were outside organizing the Easter egg hunt. My brother and sister were acting goofy. You can't tell it from this photo but all of the other photos I took of them were hilarious. (I will use them on another layout!!)

I mostly used goodies from my Sassafras Lass Indie Girl kit with some additional items from my stash. I like how it turned out. What do you think?

So now I bet you are wondering if I have one of the words??!!

Well yes, I do......my word is FLOWERS. So now you have your first word and are on your way. Go to visit Fia next.

Remember to use all 5 scrap items you find on your sketch challenge layout. But don't forget to email your list of items to Fia too. That way you will be entered to win both prizes.

Have fun!!!
