Thanks for the sweet comment Alecia!

*********************************************

Welcome to the first ever scrapsketch Blog Hop! The Creative Team is 'Bringing Back the Oldies'! If you are starting at my blog, you need to click here and begin at the scrapsketch home page. Follow the links that will take you through the entire hop. Several of us have RAK's so make sure you check them all out.

Okay. You ready for the sketch I took on? Let me introduce you to oldie sketch #20:


Here is a digi layout:

That's my little "nephew" Sammy. He is the son of one of my best friends and he is such a sweet blessing! I have no children of my own nor am I a real auntie and so I am so thankful and thrilled to be an adopted auntie to my friends little cutie. Besides layouts about me, you will be seeing lots of layouts of this sweet face. :)

Now don't go speeding off just yet. I have a RAK to offer you. How would you like to get a wee jump start to Christmas? I've got a few of my handmade cards to give away. It was a bit hard to let them go!! They will come protected in the clear sleeves you see them photo'd in. Leave me a comment to be entered into the RAK pool and one lucky comment leaver will win these:


Come back Sunday to see who the winner is!
NOW you can go hop over to Steph's blog! Have fun!!!

What a wonderful page you made using this awesome sketch. I saved this sketch and will hopefully get to use it soon. Awesome job. I was on the scrappers blog before you, Katie, and her commenting thing isn't working. We can leave her a comment but then the word verification that pops up to add those scrambled letters comes up but you can't type in those letters any where. If you can contact her or the owner of scrapsketch to let them be aware I'm sure she would appreciate it. She hasn't gotten one comment but that is why I'm sure.

Love your page
