I would like to share with you today...
Did you know that we have a great resource of sketches by a variety of designers located in the ScrapMuse Gallery?
I decided to choose a sketch to work with and then pulled one of my ScrapMuse kits to try and use up some of my leftovers.  I love to use my kits down to the very last scrap!
I chose this one by Valerie, which was the February '09 sketch of the month. I hope you'll get in our sketch gallery and choose one to inspire you in some way!

Here's my finished layout using the November '09 ScrapMuse Kit.
"Where I Long To Be!"

During the cold, snowy Winter I like to work on our warm Exotic vacation photos. This is me sitting on the beach at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, August '09 just dreaming the day away!

Now, please hop over to Teresa's blog to catch more fun ideas on how to use your ScrapMuse Kits. Thank you for visiting us all today. We hope to see you on our Forum and have you join the fun of our month-long celebration of Love and ScrapMuse.
