Headed 2 Florida

Happy Holiday Weekend!  Don't you just LOVE three day weekends?  I have a couple posts to add today and then I'm headed out for some shoe shopping.  So, without further ado.......

Lori at Apron Strings Designs has started a new month long challenge for September called 4 sketches, 20 days.  Here's how it works, each week she posts a sketch. Each day will be a suggestion on how to reuse the same sketch.  By the end of the month, you'll have, hopefully, 20 pages. . .plus two.

Here's the first sketch, from PageMaps. All layouts will be due Saturday evenings. Weekly awards will be given, as well as one at the end of the month.
So, I'm a little leery about this challenge  I've used sketches before, just not so literally.  I usually use the basic layout, just not all the layers/photos/embellishments that are included.....basically, I make it work for me and what I have on hand.  The first layout took FOREVER!!  I was quite grumpy at the end, haha!  I had a little talk with myself before I started the second attitude adjustment you could say, and it went much smoother. 
I used The Treehouse Collection from Peebles that was in Apron Strings June 2010 kit.  The pictures were taken last October.  Four snowbirds heading to Florida for the winter.  Notice the little bird over the title?  Very appropriate!
Thanks for stopping by to see me!



  1. Wonderful take on the sketch and love the pretty papers you chose for this!

  2. You did a great job with the sketch! This is one of my favorite paper collections and it worked great with your photos!
