Creative Scrappers Birthday Bash Reveal

So if you don't already know there is this super fun inspirational site call Creative Scrappers - each week they have a different sketch and each designer reveals their "take" on that weeks sketch - it really is a lot of fun, so if you haven't already you need to check it out!

This month Creative Scrappers is having a month long "birthday bash"! During this month long celebration they have invited 40 guest designers! I was asked to join in on the fun and be one of their guest designers this month and today my layout was revealed.

A little over a month ago I received a sketch - I would be lying if I said it didn't scare me a bit! There were so many photos much more than I normally would scrap on a one page layout. I also couldn't shake the fact that it looked like a "page 2" to me of a double page layout. I had a hard time shaking that feeling. However, I felt super excited because I knew the sketch artist - she is a fellow Scrapstreet Magazine sister - awh love ya Linds.

What do you think? Here's the sketch:

Here's my take on this sketch:

Isn't my little Gavin the cutest evah? Awh - I wish I was on the beach right now! I think I am suffering from a bit of the winter blues! Part of the fun of living in Colorado is the fact that the weather changes all the time - right now I am enjoying (ha) some of the worst winds ever! - it's enough to make one crazy!!!

Have a super Tuesday everyone - I'm blowing outta here like the wind . . .

Love your beach layout with cute Gavin. I can't wait to see you and your family! Come and see me- we've been close to 80 degrees for almost a week now. Gotta love the South! Hugs
