Guest Designer for Helen Croft!

I am SO excited to share some amazing news with you today! A few months ago, I emailed Helen Croft from Scrap A Little to let her know that I had used a sketch of hers and sent her a picture of my layout. Well, she wrote me back saying she loved what I'd done with the sketch and asked me if I'd be interested in being a guest designer for her! Ummm, yes! ;) She sent me a new sketch to get creating with and I had so much fun making two layouts with it...

Supplies: Fancy Pants Paper - Wishful Thinking; Craft Smart Ink - Chocolate Brown; EK Success Scallop Circle Punch; Fiskars Circle Punches; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches; Jillibean Soup Corrugated Flower; I-Rock; I-Rock Clear Gems

Supplies: BoBunny Paper - Mama-razzi; Craft Smart Ink - Chocolate Brown; Fiskars Circle Punches; Fiskars Triangle Punch; Fiskars Star Punches; Jillibean Soup Corrugated Flower

Fabulous right?? As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew just what I wanted to create with it. Plus, I used two new-to-me collections that I just got, so it was even more fun! And isn't it cool to see how you can create similar yet different looking pages using the same sketch? The first layout is 8x8 using one picture, while the second layout is 12x12 using two pictures, and there are tons more possibilities! I love that. :)

If you want to check out Helen's blog post featuring the pages I did with her sketch (seriously, how cool is that??), along with some other pages I've done using her sketches in the past and some favorites of mine, you can visit her blog.

I want to say thank you so much to Helen for allowing me to work with a new sketch and for sharing your talent with us all...you totally rock! Also, thank you to all of you for stopping by today and sharing in my joy. ;)
