It is crazy...whenever I have guest over who want to see my scrapbooks, I have eight completed scrapbooks and a host of other mini albums of my three year old son, but only one incomplete one of myself! :-( My summer goal is to finish my book of me...I have a feeling this is going to be a wonderful, adventurous summer for me anyway! Here are a couple of layouts that I completed for some challenges over at scrapbook.com:

This one was for a sketch challenge. I love sketch challenges, especially when the sketch inspires me! I saw this one and immediately knew what I was going to do with it. This is me at a concert a couple months ago.

We went crazy for Mariposa papers when they came out, didn't we? I remember signing up for swap after swap that required use of the papers and embellishments. Since I have TONS of it, I was inspired to lift one of my favorites and use the Mariposa papers to do so! I love the way it came out, especially since I NEVER use these colors!

....but of course I HAD to slide one in there of my cutie pie! Here he is during the final days of winter in a sweater that is my absolute favorite! This one was for the My Mind's Eye Blog Challenge. I was FINALLY able to incorporate a starbucks sleeve (over to the left) as a "pocket." Hmph....gives me an idea for a challenge...stay tuned! :-)  SMOOCHES!
