Always Dream Big Girl...

Hi everyone!! :)

I wanted to share some layouts I made for some recent challenges :)

First is for Elle's Studio latest sketch challenge :) I used Elle's tags and MME on my layout! And I just ordered some new Elle's goodies and I can't wait for them to get here so I can play! :)









And here is Elle's sketch :)



And my next layout is for the latest City Crafters challenge :) Their challenge was to use a map on your project :)

I actually scrap lifted myself -- lol!! I made a layout similar to this last year :)






PS -- If any of the challenges need images of my layouts -- please email me at bmwgirl@cox.net -- for certain security measures - I have had to disable copying of my photos on my bloggy :) 

 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  63. hello gorgeous layouts!!! Seriously love them both, especially loving those piccies of Brookie!! I noticed your photo disclaimer and wonder have you thought about watermarking your photos? Once you have a watermark saved, it takes an extra second to slap the watermark on before saving. Anyways.. love love love your work gf!
