Page-maps layout, a challenge and a card

I have three new things to share with you all today.  First is for the page-maps monthly sketch challenge.

Second is for my BPS challenge class.  It was to use a street sign of some sort on the page.  This picture was from a birthday party that we attended.  There were ponies and a unicorn at the party and I was so worried about Gracie getting kicked because she is wild and would totally run behind a pony without a care.  Unfortunately I was so focused on the ponies that I didn't think about the other dangers, such as being run over by a barbie 4 wheeler.  Luckily she wasn't hurt and someone had a camera and managed to get the picture.

And lastly is a card. I am a terrible card maker, but I wanted to make a thank you card for my mil.  I do like the way it turned out.  And I used a card map sketch on here.

Three new ones for BPS

I am taking a Big Picture Scrapbooking Class.  It is being taught by the very talented Elizabeth Dillow and it is Design Challenges.  It consists of 12 challenges, issued every three days.  So far we have had 5 challenges and I have done three of them. So without futher ado, here they are

First challenge was to adapt a familiar form on a page.  i used the logo for the united states post office.  Now this was not the way I had planned for it to come out, but that happens sometimes.

Challenge #3 was to use orange as the main color.  I LOVE this page and I think it is one of my new favorites.

and the 4th challenge is to use a "vintage" font on your page.  For this one I used a sketch from ACOT.  And to be honest I am not sure if it is truly vintage or not, but  . . .

Echo Park is used here.

And that is all for today.
