I am being Featured on Studio Calico Blog and a Giveaway!

I was super excited when I was asked to design layouts for the Studio Calico Sunday Sketch contest. My layouts are being featured on their blog today. Studio Calico products are amazing, popular and are at the cutting edge of the scrapbooking industry. They started off with kit clubs and then started manufacturing their own line of products.

They usually have a card sketch and a layout sketch on their blog every Sunday. These sketches are based on cards and layouts made by their design team. They choose Studio Calico members to design layouts based on these sketches and feature them on their blog. I am very happy that they selected me for this week. You have one week to submit your layouts on their blog to be entered into the sketch contest.

I made layouts for both the layout and card sketches. I had to adapt them both for 12x12 layouts but otherwise stayed true to the sketches.

For the layout sketch, I used photos of Arjun and Surya. Arjun has started reading to Surya at bedtime sometimes. I think this is such a special development between them and I wanted to record this with a layout.

Here is the layout:

For the card sketch, I used a photo of Surya taken at the Santa Barbara zoo. We have a ton of photos of the kids sitting in this egg over the years. I have one of Arjun's that is really cute too when he was about 2 also. One day I might make a layout with both of these photos side by side. Here is my layout:

For both of these layouts, I used studio calico products and products that I have been getting in their kits over the past few months. The kits contain products from the newest released lines in the scrapbooking industry and they enable you to use fresh and new products. I am so happy to have subscribed to their kits. You can see the kits here.

If you are a follower of my blog and if you leave me a message on this post by October 6th I will pick one lucky winner and send them a $10 gift certificate from Studio Calico or Two Peas in a bucket or Amazon - you can choose.

For more details about the layouts check out Studio Calico blog here.

 Have a fun filled and relaxing Sunday :)
