Sketch Support Giveaway

I'm so happy to have done my first layout
 for the Sketch Support Team! 

 This week is 2 page sketch week and Allison provided us with a fantastic sketch!  You want to go over to Sketch Support to see what the rest of the designers have done with the sketch.  The different looks and ideas are endless!  All week long, you will get to see the sketch in action.  You won't want to miss it!

Now.... before I share the sketch and my layout with you, I have some SUPER GREAT news!!! 

Volume 8 of Sketches for Scrapbooking was just released and
you can win it!! 

You're going to love it and be so inspired!!  Here is a peek at the cover.

How do you win?

All you have to do is become a follower of my blog, then hop over to Sketch Support to become a follower there. 

Let me know by a comment here that you did that and I'll pick a random winner on Sunday to get their very own copy of the new book!  How easy is that?  Of course, if you are already a follower of my blog and at Sketch Support, just let me know by commenting and you will be entered to win, too! 

The Sketch for this week is a sketch that is included in the book. 

Here it is!  You can download this sketch and many more at Sketch Support.

Here is my take on the sketch.  I couldn't resist using the Bo Bunny Liberty Collection for this sketch that is loaded with stars.  Instead of doing a patriotic layout, I did a birthday layout.

My son's birthday is on July 3rd so he had a LOT of Red, White and Blue Birthdays! 

 TIP: Sometimes a picture that is a bit busy can have a tendency to disappear on patterned paper. Adding a white border can help highlight the pictures better. I also like to pop up pictures a bit in this instance. I added two layers of cardstock underneath the pictures to further highlight them.
Supplies Used: Bo Bunny Liberty Collection paper, stickers, die-cuts, chipboard, brads and alphabet. Jillibean soup alphabet (red) and October Afternoon alphabet (blue). DMC embroidery floss.

Don't forget  to take a peek at Sketch Support to see what the design team did with this sketch and to become a follower while you're there for your chance to WIN!!
Thanks for dropping by!
