Craft Your Nest and a Layout

I mentioned a few posts ago that I am now a design team member (Chickadee) for a new challenge blog called Craft Your Nest. I really like the way Dawn describes why she started the blog and what it is about in this post
So our job will be to challenge and inspire you to just get pages done. And hopefully have some fun in the process :)
And I know Dawn is planning on having a scrapbook giveaway in the near future as well.
Craft Your Nest also has a Facebook page here and a Facebook group where you are able to post your pages from the challenges or any other project you would like to share here.

My first post is up today, and I would love for you to come check it out!
Also, Dawn is in the process of looking for some more Chickadees, which is this blog post here :)

And now for a layout...
This layout is for the May Sketch challenge at Little Red Sketchbook. It is a Page Maps sketch and here is what it looks like...
My layout is definitely a little simpler and cleaner I think, but that is my general style I gravitate towards :) Since I did a layout about Erin and I prior to this one, I decided it was Evan's turn. Because a lot has changed for him, too, since Erin was born. And he is a great big brother! But I know every now and then, he likes when it is just the three of us. Like the old days :)

Well, that is it for today. And hopefully I will see some of you hanging out at the Nest sharing some amazing work! I know that Dawn also wants to do a monthly blog feature on project submissions :)
