ScrapSketch is "Bringin' back the oldies"



You have found your way to the caboose of the ScrapSketch August Blog Hop. I hope you've enjoyed all of the amazing layouts the ScrapSketch gals have created for you! If you haven't been there yet be sure to check out all the CT's blogs (link list at end of post).

Our theme this month is "Bringin' back the oldies" so all of the CT members chose one of the first 20 sketches. Well, being that I don't like to "color inside the lines" so to speak, I used Sketch #22. Yeah I know, I'm such a rule breaker ::wink:: haha


Now because of the "oldies" theme I chose an old picture for my layout. This is my little sister and I in 1988, talk about a blast from the past. I couldn't bring myself to use the actual picture and it needed to be cropped and enlarged a little bit so I scanned and reprinted the picture, hence the less than stellar quality. But I feel it goes with the "old" feel I was going for.

Now, here is the RAK I have up for grabs. It includes a K&Co 4"x5.5" inch raw chipboard mini book, a Brenda Walton Small Wonders Boy 4.75"x6.75" mat stack from K&Co and a package of 5 gelly-o frames from Rob and Bob Studio.

Here's what to do for entry:
Leave a comment on this post for 1 entry.
Make a layout using this or any other ScrapSketch (link to it on http://www.scrapsketch.com/ and leave a comment here to tell me about it) for 3 entries.
Follow my blog for 2 entries.
This RAK will close on Monday August 24th at 9p.m. eastern time.
Here's the blog hop list, make sure you check them all out and there are RAK's along the way too!!

  33. Hi Jackie:
    I'm Jackie also - what an inspiring LO - for my birthday, my sister had an old photo she found "touched" up by a photographer of hers and had it added to a wall hanging - she was about 4 and I was about 6 and needless to say that was "many moons" ago - but the oldies really are the goodies!!
    Thanks for the chance to win in this blog hop!!
