Scrappiest Reveal and Two Awards

My layout for Sketch #13 at The Scrappiest Sketch Blog. I just love that grid. I kept it fairly simple and let the vibrant oranges, the cute photo, and the great sketch do all the work.

I swear the page is not crooked in real life, and after three tries at reshooting and recropping, I let it go. Sort of.

Now on to some awards. Both of these were given to me by Jamie Harder, a friend of mine from 52 Sketches and a talented designer at Creative Scrappers! Love her.

Anyhoo, the rules of the Lemonade Stand award:

Comment on this blog.
Cut and paste the award logo and use it in your own blog.
Nominate 5 to 10 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude.
Link to your nominees within your blog post.
Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.
Link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation.

And here's a little about the Friends award:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to five bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

Well, I'm giving both of these awards to five of my bloggy friends who consistently stop by and leave me sweet comments. Thanks ladies! Click on their name to go check out their wonderful blogs!
