So Thrilled

So, I am not ever one who likes to toot my own horn, but honestly, this really made my day! If you have not ever been to the My Minds Eye blog, every month they host a Blog Challenge and each month there is a theme. This month's like was aptly titled "April Showers". I knew that I had the perfect photos that I have been wanting to scrap forever. So I took a deep breath, and entered it in, not really expecting much, but just to get the photos scrapped and off the computer. Well, lo and behold, I won! I was happy (and sincerely shocked!) and excited. I won a whole bunch of the new papers from My Mind's Eye and of course bragging rights J So, my challenge for you is to go check out the My Mind's Eye blog. They are truly an amazing company, I have always loved anything that they have came out with.
Have a great one!

My Mind's Eye Sketch Challenge

Hello all-

So there are 2 things that I absolutley love about this post -

#1-It uses My Mind's Eye products which are kind of like scrapbooking crack for me - I JUST CAN"T GET ENOUGH! :)

#2- It features this awesome sketch. And you all know that I have kind of an obsession with sketches too :)

So of course I had to enter this challenge. The fun thing with My Mind's Eye sketch challenges is that they have a theme each month that you are supposed to use for your layout. This month's theme was aptly titled "April Showers" or in my words "Weather that just needs to go away so that I can get a Tan" :)

My layout features my cutie patootie Maddie when she was just shy of two years old. She LOOOVED to play out in the rain. More so than any of the other kids. I love how it captures her darling smile and of course the binki that was ever present in her mouth.

Here are a few close ups:


I used some awesome gray and white bakers twine and some beautiful silver

and blue My Mind's Eye buttons to simulate the raindrops.

Here is the title, which is a saying that I have always loved, and it

totally fit the photos.

Thanks so much for looking!

Take care-
