PageMaps and a Challenge!

This month's PageMaps were created by none other than the awesome paper design team at A Cherry On Top! It's always fun to get to do this because Becky's sketches are so fun and easy to work with. I got to work with an 8.5x11" sketch, which is a size I have never scrapped before. I really liked working on a smaller scale, though and think I'll incorporate more of this into my albums. It's easy by just buying some smaller page protectors and slipping them in amongst the regular 12x12 pages in my d-ring album.
You can check out all of the sketches for this month here at the PageMaps site.

The banners are made from the Creative Imaginations canvas cut into banner shapes and sprayed with Maya Mist. The stitched circle border was something I had been wanting to do for quite awhile- one of those things filed away in my idea book- so I decided now was the time! I really love how this turned out on the kraft background. And just in case you wondered, don't try sewing through foam Thickers- or at least this font. It didn't turn out so well and I had to peel them off and start over.

The May challenges are going up today at ACOT, too. The supply challenge for this month is to use stitching (hand, machine or faux is fine), fabric and a shipping tag or two. This layout was really fun to put together with the Sass Lass Mix &Mend paper- they really did a great job with the realistic looking layers in this line. It's hard to tell what is the paper and what is my addition to it!

At the end of this week is the National Scrapbooking Day Crop at ACOT, so you won't want to miss that. I'll be working on my challenge layout for that today, so hopefully I can share a peek of it later this week. I also have some other non-scrappy projects I've been working on that I'd love to share, too! Have a great week, everyone!

These are SO great, bursting with color and energy! I love the circle on the first layout, and I'm huge fool for that Sass paper on the second layout. :)
