Another Sketch For You. . .

Hey Guys!

What an exhausting weekend!

We hosted our National Scrapbook Day activities a week early this year.
My own *Princess Cait* is getting married next weekend -won't she be beautiful? (that's NOT her real dress - she'd kill me if it was posted already!)

Anyway....What a weekend we had!

We had the opportunity to host classes sponsored by Fancy Pants, KI Memories, & The Robin's Nest taught by their designers! They even wore tiaras to our Princess Crop.

That's Charity from Fancy Pants & Gretchen from KI Memories with me (I was a Rock Princess). Click on their names to visit their blogs!

Make sure you check out our FaceBook page for pix ~ our croppers were all such good sports! We had a blast!

So now it's on to #5 in our own Project12....how have you been doing so far? Keeping up?

For this month's sketch, I chose to use one that featured room for a bunch of photos.

And to be able to get them all on without cropping away alot of the image, I printed them out in wallet size (that's a new thing for me - doing it more & more!) I also stretched the sketch to make it a 12x12.

Once again, I altered the chipboard letters ~ they weren't the right color.
So I painted them brown .....and hated it.

"Oh great!" I said to myself. "Now how am I gonna fix THAT?!"

Well, I pulled out my metallic creme rubons that I have had since the beginning of time and rubbed on some blues & greens over the paint. Now I am in love with those again!

And in case you're wondering what this crazy layout is all about, here is what I wrote on my journaling block:

**Oh Alex - where DO you get your photo ideas from?
I don't even ask anymore. I just say "OK" and away we go....
This time we climbed onto the roof of the store and jumped our hearts out!**

Crazy, loveable boy . . .
check him out here.

Have fun with this next sketch in our year-long series!
Post your own finished layout on our FaceBook page and label it as your Project12!
We wanna see what you did!
