“Happy” Sketch Contest Entry

happy thumbnailOf course you’ve seen those contest entry on scrapbooking sites. Sometimes they are just free for a comment, and sometimes you have to enter with some work. I’ve done both. Haven’t won yet, but I figure my turn will come someday.

I got one done yesterday.  Here’s the contest page:

I use PageMaps a lot. Yes, other people provide layout sketches but these just seem to start up my scrapbooking mojo better than others do.  It’s always interesting to see what other people do with contest using sketches. Their inspiration goes really far afield sometimes!  I’m such a rule follower… but this time around, at least I adapted the ideas and changed them somewhat.

Here’s my entry:

Self-critique: I wish the bottom tag was a bit bigger. Overall, I’m happy with it. Haha.

    Thanks, Katharine. I wanted to do a “boy” layout without using typical “boy” paper. The stars seemed to fill the bill!

    Wow, I love how you used the repeating star motif. I think it’s more balanced than the sketch, actually!
