I am so excited to share my first post with Chic Tags as one of the newest Design Team members! And even more excited to introduce a new segment to our Challenge Sundays: Sketches!! We'll have our normal Challenge Sundays posted every two weeks and we will be alternating those with the Sketch Challenges...so you get 4 fun challenges a month! I hope you will come and play along with us! Here is our first sketch and my layout based on the Sketch:
These photos are from a cruise hubby and I took to Mexico, back in 2007. I decided to start using some of these on my layouts, because I did a small 8x8 album with some of our photos, but back then I still didn't know what I was doing! So I thought it would be fun to go back and create some 12x12 layouts, using the photos. The travel theme of the Road Trip tags worked perfectly for this layout and I paired them with the October Afternoon Travel Girl collection. I also used some of the Free Cut Files created for Freebie Fridays, that are available in the Chic Tags shop!
Now, it's your turn to play along with the Sketch! Make sure you stop by and visit the Chic Tags Blog to see how the other Design Team members used the Sketch. Once you create your layout, leave a link in the comments section on the Challenge Sunday: Sketch It Out post on the Chic Tags Blog. A random winner will be selected to win a $10 Gift Card to the Chic Tags shop!!
