Creating in the 'Hood!!! It's fun. It's happy. It's home!

Welcome to Week 36 of the... 

AnyTIME, AnyWHERE Scrapbook Experience  
aka The Sketch and Stash Challenge!
Stop by the iClassygirl.com Blog EVERY Monday for a new challenge!

Create beautiful layouts, quickly and easily every time! 
Today’s inspiration:

Grab 2 Photos and a page kit.  
Don’t know how to put together a page kit…watch the introductory video here.
I used a kit with several patterned papers, buttons and rub ons and Thickers.   I am challenging myself to use more of my stash and mix the old with the new! 

Create your layout.

  • Cut up your papers based on the measurements provided.
  • Adhere papers and photos, as shown on inspiration piece.
  • Add title, embellies and journaling, as shown or get creative and change it up a bit.  I did!

What I did: I inked the edges to make the paper strips pop!

Story to note: These are pictures of myself, dh, my mom and Ayanna during their visit here in GA.  We are taking a walk around the lake in our neighborhood.  I made this while at a retreat with my girlfriend, Lisa Renee.  We were the only women of color.  When one of the other ladies saw this layout, she said, "Why didn't you just call this, THE GHETTO!"  Lucky for her...one of the other ladies jumps up totally offended and says, "because it is not the ghetto!"  Wow!  Ignorance is NOT bliss...it's just ignorance.  So what were your thoughts when you read the title of this post?

Option: Keep making page kits.  Keep a good stock.  Your goal is to get to 
point where you ALWAYS have 10-15 complete page kits which include papers, embellie
s and photos, as well as a good stock of page kits that simply include the 
papers and embellies…making it easy to grab your photos, page kit,
 your Classy Sketch and get scrapping!  How many page kits have you created?
