Hey there! I have been taking full advantage of my Scrappy Fridays this month. It's what I call my "day off". I catch up on TV from the weekend, and scrap until the kiddos get home from school. It's really quite helpful in clearing my head at the end of the week. 

A friend of mine recently joined the team at The ScrapRoom. I like to support my friends and of course, small scrappy businesses. I don't subscribe to the kit club, but I can help get the word out.  This is something I did yesterday using their sketch for the Guest Designer Sketch Challenge

Although the sketch called for two photos, I wound up using only one. I had two, but they didn't work well together, throwing the whole thing off. Fortunately, this sketch allows some flexibility. I flipped it on it's side, centering the single photo and it turned out well. I used a square matte instead of the circle, also simplifying my embellishments. Lastly, I flagged the ends of the paper strips to give it some more interest. 

My son and I both love to read. Two days after moving across the country, we found the library,  signed up for library cards, as well as summer reading programs. I could barely find the market, but I could find the library. That's a priority if there ever was one. 

Thanks for stopping by my creative view today. If you are new to my blog, please consider flowing me. I have lots to share, and share often, I do.
