Artful Inkables Black, White, Red Layout Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Happy Sunday! Sunday is my official posting day for the Artful Inkables Design Team. And this is my first challenge post!

We will each be hosting a Think INK Tuesday challenge during our DT term. This layout is designed with Joy's Black, White and Red challenge in mind. Now, how can you go wrong with Black, White and Red???
I am so excited about this layout. It is a totally new style for me, and I am lovin' it! Wheras most of my scrapbook pages in the past have been structured and sort of 'square', I 'felt' (pun intended....I kill myself!!! HA!) inspired by CTMH's HeartFELT (HA!) die cuts to go with the flow and move into a new era of scrapbooking fun! I have to tell you, I was so tempted to line up all of the cardstock, make the sizes the same, etc. I suppose I could have gone a little more nut-so, but this is a first step!

I'm highligting Artful Inkable's cute, cute, CUTE new stampset, Fun & Friendly. Wait till you see it here! Every two weeks one of the Design Team members will host a challenge of their choice. Each INKgirl will present their take on the challenge (this is mine), but you get to play along! You'll have two full weeks to complete the challenge and add your link to the home post over on the Artful INKables Blog to have your entry counted!
Now. Here's a closeup of the stamped image. It reads "True friends leave footprints on your heart". Now, how precious is that! Think of all the uses - scrapbooking, cards, gift tags, labels for homemade goodies.......I thought it was perfect for this old, old photo of my sister's birthday party back in Wise, Virginia. I am the short, fat one (still am...tee hee), second from the right as you look at the photo. Teresa is four and-a-half years older than me. I have no clue who any of those girls are. Wouldn't it be cool if one of them was a crafter and followed my blog, saw her picture and jumped around and screamed? How cool would that be? I won't hold my breath - HA!

This is flippin' awesome! I am jealous. I cannot do scrapbook pages to save my soul. Good thing my kids are older. I will have to learn once I have grandkids, though! :) Right on, girl!
