A “lift” and a giveaway…

Hi there!  It’s been a while, huh?  I wish I could say I haven’t been around because of some big, fun adventure…but I can’t.  Just life – that’s all.  But I had to pop in today to share this layout that went up on the Doodlebug blog today. 

wendysue_summer_layout

It was my turn to share a tutorial and I wrote about finding inspiration from the covers of scrapbook magazines!  I know, it seems like an obvious place to find inspiration – but the best thing is that the companies have all of their covers featured right on their websites, so you can take a peek when you’re looking for inspiration! 

You likely know I’m a bit partial to all of the Northridge Media publications these days, so it should come as no surprise that I went to their website looking for inspiration first thing!  Here’s a look at the cover I used for my inspiration:  The current (August) cover of Scrapbook Trends magazine, featuring a layout by Amy Heller:

You can find a step-by-step tutorial for creating this layout today on the Doodlebug blog!

And now, for the EXTRA fun part – a giveaway!  All you need to do to be entered in a random drawing for a fun prize package including these three issues from Scrapbook Trends magazine :

Simply leave a comment on this post (and become a follower of my blog for an extra entry)– be sure to leave a way for me to contact you!  I’ll draw a random winner Friday (8/17), so be sure to check back!
