A new Venture for me.

A couple of weeks ago one of the Fiskateers, posted on the message board that she was looking for some scrapbookers who would create layouts with her sketches before the date that she planned to post the sketch. Her goal was to be able to show samples of how other people used her sketch. I decided to email her as I had just done a few sketches and decided that I really like doing them. It keeps my scrapping new and different. I was getting into a rut with how my pages were layed out. Now I am using different layouts and more patterned paper. Hoping that doing the sketchs helps me out in several ways.
1. Getting more pages done, now I have to work on at least 4 layouts a month
2. Helping me to use up my stash. I am trying a no buy challenge, except for adhesives and basic colored cardstock.
3. Helping me to design different layouts and get more creative.
You can check out the sketch, and all of our takes on Judy's blog Pieces of Me, you really need to check them out, her 11 year old daughter is one of the ones doing the sketches and wow is this girl talented.

Hi: I did this for Judi also. You did a fabulous job using the sketch. Love the color scheme and way you did the 'chant' on the right page. I'll put mine on my blog Monday.

Hi Colleen! I'm also doing layouts for Judy and wanted to pop over and say hi. You did a great job on your layout. I like how used the school colors for the whole layout.
