Two Little Fishes

Monday, June 3, 2013

Hello and welcome to the first ever Scrapbook Generation  Sketch Lovers Blog Hop.  These are planned to be held quarterly, so if all goes well, you should be able to hop again in September!



Let's take care of business first.   You should have arrived here from Sherri's blog. If not, or if you go lost along the way, please go back to Scrapbook Generation  and begin from there.

Each blog you visit will be showcasing a LO inspired by an SG sketch.  Their sketches are available for purchase in book or downloads at the SG store.  Not ready to make a purchase?  A sketch is available free each month. Download one and give it a try.

Here is mine:

I treated myself during NSD weekend by purchasing the download version of the Travel Sketches book.  I'm so happy I did.  Most of the sketches in that book use uncropped 4x6 photos.  Can you say made for me?  The sketches in this particular book are extremely versatile.  Travel or not. In my case today, not.  This LO is straight out of that book. I did add my own embellishment clusters, but the rest of the page is pretty much the same as the sketch.  And I love it!  The best part is being able to use them over and over.  Change the photos and the papers and you have an entirely new page.

Thank you for hopping and stopping here on your journey.  From here, please go to Tina's blog.  Remember to leave a comment on each blog to be entered for your chance to win a sketch bundle of your choice from the SG store.  The winner will be chosen on June 10th.  That gives you a week to comment.

(On a side note, I also created this LO for a new challenge blog called Inspired by...  If you are interested, go check it out)

  6. I love that SG has 4x6 sketches but don't overlook the ones that use smaller pictures. I a ton of pics. of my son that I loved and wanted all of them on a LO trimming them down, helped me highlight what I loved most about the picture without the busy background.
