Welcome to my Guest Designers!!

As you know I recently had a call for guest designers here at the blog.

The funny thing is that I didn't receive  many applications at all.
I thought that with 600-1000 hits per day and over 1000 followers (blogger + feedblitz) I would get too many to choose from.
But I only got a total of 15 submissions!?

I don't know why that is. Maybe many of you thought that you are too good or not good enough.
I have no clue, but it actually worked out perfect for me.
Because I didn't have to make any choices.
I decided to give everyone that applied a spot as a guest designer!!
Not just to be nice, but because they were all so good!

Here's the sketch that they had to use;

Be prepared for a LOT of inspiration.

Here's all my guest designers (in no particular order) and their take on the sketch:

Isn't it awesome to see how everyone put their own personal touch on the sketch?

I'm so excited to welcome them all to Scrap A Little!

I can't wait to see all their inspiration!

I surprised myself the other day. I actually got some scrapping done:)

We recently had some family pictures taken by a photographer that turned out really nice.
You can see some of them here on my personal blog.

I decided to make an album with all those pictures and I wanted to use the same paper throughout the scrapbook.

I found these gorgeous papers from Close To My Heart called Magnifique.
Aqua and teal are my absolute favorite colors and they are perfect for our beach photos.

Here's the three layouts I made.

Based on my sketch # 35:

Based on my sketch # 33

Based on my sketch # 21

 If you like these, stay close, because I will have a giveaway of a Magnifique paper pack very soon.

Tomorrow I will be back and introduce Scrap A Little's guest designers.

Have a good one!

October's sketch

Here's a new sketch based on some older layouts:

This is my first version that I made a couple of years ago:

And this is the (one and only) layout that I had published last year in Creating Keepsakes

I'm working on a updated layout and I'm hoping I will get it done today.
 My dear husband came back yesterday after weeks gone, so I might finally be able to get something done around here.
Have a good one!
