Practical Scrappers Blog Hop & SB&B Giveaway

I was very flattered when Christine Meyer from Practical Scrappers asked if her design team could use one of my Little Yellow Bicycle projects for inspiration in their Linking with Love Blog Hop.  Each of the design team members used an element or elements from the page to create their own design.  Many of you know how much I like to share, so I was only too happy to play along.  Please visit the Practical Scrappers blog to see which of my pages was the catalyst for this inspiration filled hop.
I promised Christine that I would wrap up the blog hop with a Brand NEW sketch to keep the inspiration flowing.  I like clean lines and bright colors, but I am sure many of you can figure out how to take this sketch and make it fit your style.  The most unique element on the sketch is the anchored twine with the button, but I will look forward to seeing how people change that up a bit.
This page was created for the Spring Issue of Scrapbooking and Beyond Magazine with Doodlebug's Colorwheel Collection.  There is a wonderful giveaway on the Scrapbooking and Beyond website with an enormous, almost disgusting amount of Doodlebug products.  Please visit the link HERE to enter this free contest.

Please hop back to the Practical Scrappers Blog to begin the hop if you are just starting out.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
