Interesting size for a LO. Great sketch so I'll have to get busy.

To respond to your comment, yes that is an interesting size.  Optimist International produced that size of a scrapbook for their clubs to document a years worth of activities long before scrapbooking became such a popular activity with all the bells and whistles (and standard 12x12 sizes)...I'm trying to get that changed within the Midwestern Ontario District, but it won't happen this year!  So for my year as president, this is what I've got to work with.

NSD...The day after

Thank you to all of you who took part in yesterdays Scrap~tures blog hop!  If you didn't - please go to THIS POST and be sure to leave a comment, and on Tuesday I will draw for a RAK out of those comments.

As well as the blog hop, I spent yesterday with a few of my scrappy friends (about 40 or so) at the Karen's Creation's National Scrapbook Day 9-9 crop.  It was held at the Sauble Beach Community Centre.  And as always, the time flew by way to fast.  We laughed a lot, ate tremendous food, and actually scrapbooked a little bit!  Here are some of the things I made while there:

Happy birthday card
card sketch by Karen Lancaster; cardstock-american crafts and bazzill; ribbon and stamp - unknown; ink - ranger; embossing folder - tim holtz; die cut - provo craft cricut; technique - dry embossing with ink from NSD mini crop challenge #16 The Scrapping Nook

Here is the sketch from Creative Scrappers:

and here is my take on it:
This LO is for the Wiarton District Optimist Club scrapbook.  The dimensions are 14x10.75...so I enlongated the sketch and used an oval instead of a circle, I think I pulled it off.
Materials used:  bo bunnypp, my computer for the circle, american crafts chipboard letter stickers and pen, ikea thread, unknon lace, ranger liquid pearls

I will draw for a RAK for anyone who tries this sketch and links it to my comments section - good luck!

Your next stop is:  Laurie
