Third blog post this week!

Hi all, today I am sharing a layout I made for the Once Upon A Sketch blog, which is really popular and has amazing prizes up for grabs every month.  Limor Webber is also having a challenge on her Facebook page where she would like us to create something out of our comfort zone, based on OUAS or another challenge blog.


  I went waaaaay out of my comfort zone trying to create a grungy, textured layout...not sure I succeeded but it was fun!  Last month in Captiva, some my family went with our friends to this restaurant where they had "Crab races." Basically you pay to pick a crab and half the money goes to charity (of the placing crabs!) and the other half goes to the winning customers.  The guy hosting it was hilarious and the kids all had a blast! So when I saw the theme of the OUAS was "lucky" I immediately thought of one of the pictures in the layout where the girls are all holding a dollar.  One of my daughter's friends won third place (well, her crab, you know) and she so generously split her winnings with the other girls. So cute! I think I am also going to submit the layout for the challenge at the new blog creative embellishments where they have really unique chip board.  The theme is "nautical" so I think this layout applies, kinda? Anyway thanks for letting me share my latest, super-chaotic layout, it was fun to make! I hope you go and check out these fun blogs...fab prizes to be won. Please consider following my blog if you are able. Thanks!
