Don't Forget about my Wall of Friends that I want in my scrapbook room.
Create a layout no bigger than 6x6 and backed with chipboard. I was hoping to get the layouts in an 'about me' style and include a picture. I want to know about you and display that in my scrapbook room. Cant wait to see everyone's page. 
Check out Mary's LO here for an idea of what I am looking for!!!

Nuts about Sketches ~ All Scrapped Out

 Have you guys checked out Nuts About Sketches????
 Shawn and the DT over there are some very talented ladies.

Currently they having a Design Team, wish me luck everyone!!!
Here is the sketch that Shawn challenged anyone who thought they were up for being apart of the Nuts About Sketches DT.

And the Two Page LO, because I work better with 2 pages.
This Layout is from my weekend scrapping trip to SC. Melissa had gone to bed earlier than the rest of us. So when we went into the room, we saw her sleeping like this. No clue why I thought it was funny. But I got a case of the giggles. I blame it on it being 5 AM. I knew I had to get a picture of her sleeping. Which was very difficult while having a case of the giggles. When the flash went off she says 'Put a ring on it.' I LOST it. I was bent over laughing at this point. Melissa was not quite asleep and was listening to Beyoncé's Single Ladies song. The things that happen at a crop!!!
