Sketch Challenge…Are you ready???

11 Sep

As it is September 11th, I could not write a post and pretend that my thoughts are not heavy with memory of this day 10 years ago.

 This will be my “I know exactly what I was doing” when the events of 9-11-2001 happened.  This is a picture from a very old scrapbook of mine.  This was taken on 9-12-2001, our firestation had the flags at half mass and my kids were gazing up to the flag.

A friend of mine asked to have this message shared:

“On this 10 th Anniversary I would wish everyone take a minute and remember what happened on 09/11/2001. Don’t ever forget. Be humbled by the loss and strengthened by the heroism. If you see and member of the armed forces, thank them for their service and be respectful of this date. The date that will forever be etched into our lives and our Generation. May the Angel’s fly high and the lost soar to the heavens with the glory and peace as their comfort.”

I just wanted to share my thoughts before delving into the Crafty things I have to share today.

Now, to switch gears, to my project for today’s post:

Here is our sketch for this challenge:
This challenge starts today, September 11, 2011 and goes through till September 17, 2011.
Right now on Paper Issues our theme is LEARNING CURVE.
I have a habit of forgetting my camera at home and had to ask for a volunteer for some 1st day of school pics…
Luckily I had a taker and here is my creation for them, based on the sketch above.
This was a fun, FUN page to make.
To begin with I have to put a plug-in for Tally Scrapper.com.
Most of the paper is from the September Tally Kit.  Fabulous things all matched and coordinated for you by one of the most talented designers I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
You can order yours HERE:
I thought the paper was perfect for this little girl layout! The apples are from a file from My Scrap Chick.
Everything else is just a mixture of coordinating things I had on hand.
I especially love the made up heart “APPLE”.  I love just making up my own things.
I used to think that things like dimension and sewing on pages was a total DIVA thing, but I guess I have turned my self into a DIVA because now, I love to sew and add dimension to my pages and cards.  I have learned to never say never, that’s for sure!
I know you will love the prize shown at the top of this post.  You have a week!
Meaning a whole week to get a layout done and get yourself entered for that prize.
Get yourself over to Sketch Inspirations, get the sketch printed and start scrappin!
If you do, link back to me or let me know so I can see what you have created!
For now..I am off to clean up one very messy and unorganized scrap room!
Wish me lunch and have a great rest of your Sunday.
