…TGF Monthly Scrapbook Challenge

Hello there, TGF fans!  We have some exciting news for you!  We will start having monthly Scrapbook Challenges in addition to normal challenge format over at The Greeting Farm Blog.  On the second Thursday of every month the Farmers will be issuing and playing along with a plethora of fun and inventive challenges geared towards getting your “scrap on”!  :)

Today we have a Scrapbook Sketch (or layout) Challenge designed by…ME!  You’ll see me using the abbreviations “SB L/O” (scrapbook layout) quite a bit when these challenge days roll around, so don’t flip out!  LOL!  Speaking of flipping, I flipped this week’s sketch 90 degrees to the left so that the ribbon would be in the lower left-hand corner…as you can see I interpreted the sketch very loosely.

As soon as I remembered that I had a SB L/O to do, I knew that I wanted to use one of my favorite pictures from my CHA stash!  I had been dying to meet Sankari Wegman for a LONG time, and I was over-the-moon when I finally got the opportunity to actually hug her and carry on a face-to-face conversation.  She has the prettiest smile and the warmest personality of anyone you will ever meet, and she love to hear this crazy southern girl’s drawl!  LOL!  I used one of my numerous digital scrapbook kits to create the layout, then added the “HG Classy Digi” after I altered the colors of her hair, dress, and skin using Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.

Now let’s see what the other Farmers have in store for you today:

That’s it for now!  Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here shortly with a SPECIAL BLOG HOP…you will NOT want to miss it!  Until then…
