This week for Technique Tuesday Robin challenged us to layer border punches, and even threw in a bonus sketch.
On What’s New Wednesday, Barb showcase one of the hottest new trends…banners.
For Transformation Thursday I posted about an altered chipboard album I have plans to use as a gift for my loving hubby.
On Friday’s Focus, Tabitha challenges us to add a splash of color to our LO by using journaling jots.
For our Sketchy Saturdays, Jo provided us with a sketch from the Sketch This blog
And finally for this week on Inspirational Sundays, Nordica challenged us to find inspiration from our families.

Nordica challenged us to take card stock, stamps and ink and create a new background in What's New Wednesday. Thursday's Transformations had Cassy creating a cute teacher gift with recycled tins. Patti challenged us to use text fill in Friday's Focus. Sketchy Saturday came with a two picture sketch by Sarah. Finally, Tamara started us off this week with her Inspirational Sunday and the challenge to stretch our journaling skills.

Here's a taste of what's been cooked up so far.
Shawna served up her BPS with the split sketch she created.
It's Saturday and what better way to start off the day than with a new sketch. This is one I put together. It is a 12x12 sketch but please feel free to convert it to your size! I wanted to do something a little different with this one so I split the layout into two sections. I hope that you like the sketch and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
And her fun summer LO.
Today Tabitha brought us some yummy inspiration......who couldn't be inspired by both of these great LOs!
Her inspiration.I was totally inspired by Keisha Campbell's blog [url]http://abiteast.typepad.com/[/url]and just love her work. I chose the layout below because it was done with white and I think that when you use white it makes your pictures look crisp and clean. I love the way she used white on white with just a small touch of color. I hope you will be inspired as much as I was. Can't wait to see what you create.
And her beautiful LO.
Drop in and visit us at Cookin' Up Creations...there's a Blue Plate Special waiting for you!

For this layout I used the Core'dinations paper as my background and used a sanding block on the edge for a grungier look.

First off, here are my pages with Friends by Designs by Krista.
And we also got to pick an image from Bugaboo Stamps. I had the hardest time deciding and went with Stella - HardDrive. I used it as a digital image for my digi layout.
Two great sponsors this month!!!! Make sure you check out Designs by Krista and Bugaboo Stamps to see all the wonderful designs that they have.
