“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

H2H Gets sketchy!

This week over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog we were given a sketch to work with. 

I like this kind of challenge because it takes some of the "work" out of the planning process.   As I was thinking about the sketch this week, I was sure I wanted to use CTMH's new kraft color ready borders.  I pulled out some stamp sets looking for ones with tall designs and this is what I came up with:

It is crisp, clean and colorful!  I got the inspiration for the color combo from some of the new paint charts I picked up at Lowe's the other night.  The purple should be a bit more like magenta but I like the color combo!

Materials Used (all CTMH):
Cardstock in White Daisy, Gypsy, and Pear
Kraft Color Ready Borders
Tag the Occasion stamp set
Star Power Stamp set
Black, Lagoon, Pear and Gypsy Ink
Blue and Green Sparkles
Red and Pink Sparkles

Thanks for checking this out and be sure to check out the rest of the artwork for this week over at the H2H Challenge Blog!
