Throwing My Hat in the Ring

So if you saw my last posting it was filled with my creative binges from last weekend.

As a result of surfing around the interwebs I came across the sketch site Sketch ~ N ~ Scrap.

I had no idea that they have a monthly guest designer until one of the team commented on my post that I should apply and sent me the link.

Guess what.

I'm applying.

**ETA: No I'm not applying. I missed the deadline even though I had the page done a few days ago.  LOL!!!  That's okay. CHA+July=Busy anyway. Maybe next month.**

I haven't actually been a part of a design team for many, many, many years.  Yeah, for the newbies in the scrappy world we're talking in major retro times that I was on a team. Does Rob & Bob Studio ring a bell? 

However, I've managed a fair share of them since and have coordinated and hosted countless blog hops. I love it. I love meeting new crafty peeps, and sharing with everyone my passion to create and my passion to journal.

I realize that journaling is a major "no-no" for the trendy white space look right now, but—well—ya know me. That just doesn't fly for my personal motto.

Here's the sketch. (Notice no journaling, which is totally cool. Just makes it that much more fun to tweak!)

Thankfully for my entry, and I'm sure all of you that really don't want to read about my life, the journaling on this page is limited. :) Did I make a good balance?  LOL!

Truth is if I would have had more room, I'd have gone on and on about Mr. Macho Lee who "entertained" himself for the last two miles of the 1/2 marathon by sprinting ahead of me and doing pushups until I would catch up to him.  Seriously?  Who does crap like that.

Oh yeah.

My sexy husband.

Well, even if the stars don't shine on me to be a guest designer for a month (which I wouldn't blame them for not picking me one bit—with my whole 18 followers or whatever it is—after all I am in marketing and I get how it works ;) ), it sure was fun creating another fun page! Now to just get back into the shape that I was in last summer.  **sigh**

I'm sorry you missed the deadline, we have a lot going on though, our regular DT call ends on June 4th if you are interested in that...although I know it is coming up fast, we are just requiring samples of past work, nothing new and you can even use this layout ;O) Here is the link: Ends at 5 pm CST on June 4th...Thanks again for playing along with us at Sketch N SCrap!

You are SO sweet Lisa! I honestly have my hands full managing my team at Kiwi Lane Designs and with CHA coming up and a new call going out for Kiwi Lane soon, I think I'll just try and catch your guest spot next month!

I LOVE doing sketches. I was the sketch designer for for 4 years and loved every minute of it!

Now I do them once a month for Kiwi Lane and in fact need to get my sketch done for Monday! ACK!
