USWDAF-A Sketch:Take Two

Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Tara Bilboa's Sports Scrapbook layout! What a gorgeous way to remember those special activities for the family!

I love a good Sketch for scrapbooking inspiration, so I made a sketch and then did a traditional version and a digital version. 


My Digital Studio made making this sketch so easy! And Stampin' Up! offers printing services also for the Digital stuff you make. How cool is that?!


This is my adorable nephew. Don't you just Love that Parker's Patterns DSP?! Great colors and great patterns.

And this is my niece, but not the sister to the nephew above :) I had a lot of fun putting these together and I hope you enjoy the sketch also.

I love the sketch. Thanks for the easy instructions on your tutorial. I need to start using my MDS more often. Thanks for sharing.

Stephanie Osgood said...

What a great idea for a sketch. I also love seeing both types of layouts. Great designs.

MaryK said...

What a cute layout! I love them both. I use my MDS to make banners for my on-line classes and it works great for that. I just drop a pic of the textbook into the layout I've created, and it couldn't be easier.

Kay Jantz said...

MDS has definitely been a challenge for me. But I do like your layout a lot so thank you for sharing your creativity with the rest of us. You must be from Minnesota for I do have had my feet in Lake Bemidji! I grew up in Park Rapids south of there aways! Live in Albuquerque, NM now. Long way from home, not much family up there other than a brother and sisterinlaw in Nevis.

Kris Sobolik said...

I love that you did two pages with the sketch, they are both really fun!

Sandi said...

Oh my gosh, what an awesome layout. I love, love, love how you showed the same layout used in two completely different events (boy pages and girl pages). Thank you so much for sharing this.

Tara Bilbao said...

I love how you used the sketch with traditional scraping and also with MDS. Both are fabulous!

LadyDiane said...

I love this sketch, and hexagons are all the rage now. Then you switched it up and used flowers gotta love it. Thank you for sharing.

Unknown said...

Thank you for sharing and MDS page and a traditional page...great job!

Jackie said...

A great sketch and love how you both layouts! Looking forward to "Keep Calm and UStamp On". Thanks for inspiring us with your creativity.

Great layout Tanya! Love that you showed two ways to use it. Love the circle circus in the flowers. So many things you could do with this. Great job! Thanks for the chance to win some yummy ribbon!
