Roundabout - And a Little Bragging (I just can't help it.)


I had some time to play today (and will have some more tomorrow) so I dug into the June Studio Calico kit - Roundabout for a simple layout based on the MSM sketch blog challenge from last Friday.  I loved the paper layers at the bottom of the sketch.  And they provided the perfect chance to mix circles and triangles for some fun layers.

Here is my layout - really easy to put together and I adore the cloud paper in the kit - its a Studio Calico exclusive this month.  The black transparencies are kit exclusives too.  And I've been wanting to play with the Crate Paper DIY transparencies.

A Little Bragging

On Sunday Life Paper Scrapbook announced the top three layouts for their May sketch challenge.  It was my son's graduation day so I didn't get a chance to check it out til today.  But was I ever excited to see one of my layouts in the top three.  I shared the two page version of this layout in this post about documenting a soccer season.  But I'm not sure I ever shared the one page version based on the sketch.

This is the first time my work was selected for this kind of monthly challenge so I am thrilled. 

Thanks for sharing my happy news.  I am working on another layout from Roundabout so I am off to finish it up.  Hopefully I can share it tomorrow.  

Hope you have a fantastic Friday!
