MSAM Sketch #79

I had so much fun working with this sketch from My Scraps and More.  I've also got back in the winter mood now that I'm enjoying 80 degree weather and not freezing anymore :)  Here is today's sketch.

I created this page with Echo Parks Keepin Cozy.

My Scraps and More Blog Hop!!!

Hello and welcome to the My Scraps & More National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop! Each of the 6 designers has used one of the items in the image below in a project.

 Hop along to each blog to see how they used the product, then leave a comment for each DT member. One random winner will be chosen from one of the DT's blogs to win each of the items that the design team used! Comments close on Sunday, May 4th at midnight EST and the winner will be posted on the My Scraps & More blog on Monday, May 5th. Your kit will include:

2 Jillibean Soup Placements
October Afternoon All Boy 6x8 paper pack
Jillibean Soup Wooden Nickles
Fancy Pants Nautical envelopes & pockets
Simple Stories DIY kraft labels
Fancy Pants Artist Edition Chalk Tape

Also, be sure to check out and LIKE our Facebook page for a chance to win ANOTHER prize!

For my product I got to use Fancy Pants Nautical envelopes and pockets. I had already fallen in love with the colors of this collection and had a lot of fun with these.  I couldn't stop with just one page and ended up making 2.  This first page uses the red chevron envelope.

I love the bold look it gave to the page.

Now if you pop on over to My Scraps and More forum you will see that my challenge is up for today and it is a lift of our wonderful store owner Audrey.  Since I used some more of the pockets on my page I thought I would show it to you here.  I went into creating this page with the intention of using the pockets to hold something but I just loved the detail of the shape that I ended up using them more like die cuts.

Here is a close up of the green pocket used more like a die cut.

Now hop on over to Wendi's blog and see what she got to play with.

Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost along the way!
Tracy Rhodes - you are here

Thanks for hopping and hope you have a happy National Scrapbook Day!

Scrap and Play

I'm excited to announce I've been asked to be a part of the Scrap and Play Design Team.  I've loved working with Tammi at My Scraps and More and excited for her new venture in challenge blogs.  The first challenge at Scrap and Play starts today with a sketch challenge.

Here is what I created with the sketch.

I hope you will come play along with us!!
