If you’re hopping along or new here, welcome! You should have come from Kristine‘s blog – if not, or if you get lost along the way, go to Paper Issues for the full list.

We’re all using the same sketch and I love seeing how different our LO’s are – it’s so much fun to see all those varying interpretations of one simple template!

My LO not only uses Jennifer’s great sketch, exclusively designed for Paper Issues, but also one of the Simple Scrapper September Story Starters:


Anyone who follows me on Facebook or Twitter will already recognize this sweet girl – she went missing for almost a week a little while ago. The hidden journaling on this LO, along with a picture of Rosie the day after she came home, tells that story.

I used Jillibean Soup Alphabeans for the title, along with a Studio Calico house:

and then outlined the letters with my Faber-Castell Pitt pen.

Some layering and a Studio Calico wood veneer cat at the top to draw you in and I was done!

I love working with Jennifer’s sketches – they can be used as is so easily, but they always work when flipped or rotated as well. And when I’m stuck, they always get me creating again! Luckily for all of you, there are two giveways on this blog hop:
