    1. Thank you Charity and your comment regarding the twine is cracking me up!

  2. Enjoyed your idea. Nice balance on the page. I love brackets and I liked how you used them.

    1. Thank you Donna! I hope you get a chance to join in the challenges this month!

  3. So you can tell a fan when they wait with baited breath for your inspirations! Rochelle's colors started me off, followed by the sketch and Kerys' great word art finished it off. No offense to Kristi but I passed on the mustaches for this one - ha ha!

  6. Fun sketch and colors for this month. I hope you enjoy my layout for this combo.

    1. Hi Kathleen, my challenge is the sketch challenge and you used a different sketch. I think you meant to add your layout to Rochelle's color combo challenge.

  7. Thanks for a fun sketch. I love how perfectly it went with my photos and all the other challenges!

  8. Such a beautiful sketch. I just entered my take on it.

  9. Thanks for the great sketch. It got me digging out and using up some of my old die cut papers.

  10. Brenda this was a great sketch, I couldn't wait to give it a try. Thanks!

  11. Hi Brenda...So loved this challenge. Awesome sketch selection. Need those goodies LOL!!!!! Love all your creations.

  12. Brenda, I love this sketch and had so much fun putting my layout together. I did combine all four of the challenges on it.

    Thanks for another month of great challenges.

  13. Awesome sketch ... had so much fun with it! Thanks for the chance to win the twine!!

  14. New follower here. I really LOVE that twine. I dont yet own any, so that would really be a great prize. Anyway, I really enjoyed trying to put all 4 challenges together for this month. Hope to be able to complete each month. That in itself would be a great reward for me (getting pages done). :)

  15. Had a great time with the challenges. I chose to do the color combo and the Word Art challenge also. Thanks so much for inspiring!!! Challenges just make scrapping so much more fun (and I actually get it done:-0!)

    1. Hi Brenda. I'm not sure I did this right. I was trying to upload my picture for the layout challenge. I did it before the 11:59 deadline, but I dont see my name listed, did I do something wrong. Sorry, I am new at this. Audrey o.

    2. I added my link to my posting the first time, not sure if I should have added it somewhere else. The linky widget is expired now, but I promise I did get it posted under the deadline wire. Here it is again, if you want to see it, even if it doesnt count.

  17. Audrey, so sorry i deleted it because I clicked on it several times and the link kept taking me to my scrapbook.com album. I thought somneone was spamming me or something. I will get it linked back up.
