Bowling Fun

I'm trying for a guest design team spot on a site that I frequent. We had to create a layout using a sketch. I created two. This is the first one.


I love these photos, especially the bowling shoes! My girls always think it's so fun to rent bowling shoes. We don't go bowling very often, but when we do, it's always FUN! I used Basic Grey Hang Ten papers on this. How fantastic is the bowling pin and the ball? I detail cut it out of one of the sheets of Basic Grey papers. I also hand cut the scallop at the top of the page. The large circle was cut using my Coluzzle. The two photo corners were cut on my QuicKutz. I'm very happy with how this page turned out!


Next, I was given this award by Dawn, Zee, and Alexandra. I keep forgetting to post it. Sorry ladies, I blame my forgetfulness on spring break! Thank you for passing it on to me. I'm honored! The "Arte Y Pico" (Art & More) is given to bloggers who share their art and creativity making their contribution to the blogger world. I'm supposed to pass this on to five bloggers. I dislike having to choose, and I've already seen it on a log of blogs, so can I just say that if you aren't currently displaying this award, and you're reading this right now, I nominate you!

I mentioned a while back that I was contracted to make a scrapbook. It's 8x8, and I'm just about finished! The final album has 52 layouts/pages in it (26 page protectors with two pages in each). It's for a man who is getting married. His aunt created a "look at his life", and the last few pages are photos of him with his fiancee. It's simple for the most part, because I wanted it to be masculine. I'll be anxious to meet with her next week to see her reaction to it. Have a GREAT weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

Fab layout, full of interest.
I have really enjoyed playing along with Tamara's sketches but work was busy & I fell behind a little. Now I've got eye strain & two commissions need completing by next weekend!!! Oh well if they want them done they will have to wait I never rush my work! I cancelled one because she was meant to supply photos a month ago & thinks she can ask me to create a 16 page minibook in a weekend, ha ha! no way
