Today I had a wonderful creative day at a crop with my friend Maraline.  I was able to complete 7 layouts.  The first one was for Colorful Creations Twisted Blueprints and called for using chipboard and brads along with a sketch.  I have also entered it in Use It Tuesday Challenge #49 Fasteners which calls for using brads from stash.  I would say that the brads I used on this layout have been in my stash at least 3 years.  Many of the papers are probably close to that old as well as the key, bracket and diecut and the photos are from 2005!

Here is the sketch (which I rotated 1/4 turn right):

Here is my layout:

My next layout was using February sketch #2 from Let's Get Sketchy.

Layout number 4 uses the MSC Bonus Sketch 2 from Sketch Challenge.

Layout #5 is also for for the February Pagemaps Sketch Challenge and uses sketch #3.  I am also submitting this to Word Art Wednesday Challenge #67 Love/Anything Goes.  The photos were taken in the chapel at Jamestown at the Baptismal Font and shows the verse Acts 2:38.

I hope you have enjoyed perusing my day's work.  I am going to upload these to their respective sites and head off to bed!  Happy Saturday everyone!  Sweet Dreams!
