SUSTARS April 2011 Blog hop... Anything but a card! Make mine a scrapbook page!

Today the Stars are sharing anything but a card - mine, of course, is a scrapbook layout. You probably got here from Denise Foor's blog, but if not, more hop details are below the scrapbooking goodies shown here...

I have to start off by saying I am a collector - I collect scrapbook sketches and make up my own. This is from my collection of sketches - and is my take on it, although they are very similar. I created the mockup of the sketch in Powerpoint - I forgot to put the ribbons around the journaling card in between the two pictures... but I bet you can figure that out! Besides, I even put the dimensions of the cuts on there for ya!

So here is my take on it -
first - I created my quote in MyDigitalStudio - VERY easy to do - I used the MDS download of the Botanical Gazette DSP from the Occasions Mini which is going away SOOOOOOOON!!!!! I used a quote by Emily Dickinson, which says:

Hope is that thing with
feathers that perches
in the soul and sings
the tune without the
words and never stops...
at all.

I was able to print four of those to a page (in MDS - you go to the share button, pick JPG and save it and print it).

The H/Hope piece in mine below is stamped in Bashful Blue with the newly arriving Strength and Hope stamp set - orderable by customers May 1!

Hope you enjoyed the share - next stop on the hop is Shari's Stamp Pad - so hop on over to Shari's pad and check it out!

If you got here by another means and want to start the hop fro the top, go to the SU Stars blog to begin!

Happy Hopping!

PS - I am on my school's RELAY FOR LIFE TEAM - my mom is a breast cancer survivor, and my dad died on March 5 of a malignant brain tumor - if you would like to sponsor a luminaria in memory of my dad, Scott Scoggins, the donation is $5 (or more if you so choose) and the money goes to the American Cancer Society. Please email me at for more details about that!
