I've gone International!

One of the most amazing things to me about scrapbooking is how universal it is. It's truly a global hobby (or obsession as the case may be). That point was completely proven to me when I got an email last month from Yuko Abe. She and her friend Yuko Motoyama (a designer for the awesome Pencil Lines sketch site) decided that their country of Japan was in need of a sketch challenge blog like those that are so popular here in the US and in other countries. They wanted to know if I'd be interested in being their very first sketch designer! How amazing is that? So I jumped at the chance to be a part of it!

The sketch went live on their site Scrap in Japan on October 1st (Sept. 30th here in the US) and will be up until mid-month when, from what I understand, the awesome Pam Callaghan will have her sketch go up (and trust me, you don't want to miss that one either!). I'd personally love to have everyone of you participate and I know Yuko and Yuko would appreciate a good push to launch their site, so I hope you'll go play and link up your layouts for them. I get to pick a "winner" of those that play and that winner will get some prizes of some sort.

Here is the sketch I did for them and the layout based on it. Please play along! I'm excited to see what you come up with!

Supply List:
Bazzill CS, Prima PP and chipboard buttons, Uniball Signo Pen, Pentel Pen, Colorbox (Clearsnap) chalk ink, Heidi Swapp chipboard alphas, Scrapworks waxy flax, Making Memories brads

I don't know what I'd do without sketches to help inspire me. So glad to see you are doing it too. Off to check out the Japan blog.

BTW, I've received so many compliments on the projects I created in your class at CE. Quite inspiring!
