YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!

I am just about to burst!!! I am so excited to announce that I am the October Guest Designer on the Sketch~n~Scrap blog. How exciting is that? Trust me it was welcomed news during a very trying week,  I am so grateful! Thank you to Lisa and the entire design team for selecting me, I promise some special "goodness" during the month, especially since it is also my birthday month! I also want to thank Brenda and Rochelle for introducing me to to Sketch~n~Scrap, the sketches are awesome and I am so inspired to create. Soooo my husband is taking credit since the layout I submitted is about him...............go figure! But there is something special I wanted to share about the layout.
As most of you know Mika is my best friend and we met online through our love of scrapbooking a few years ago. We have only been together in person twice and the first time we were together was at a weekend crop. We were comparing die cut papers and our desire to keep or paper forever and still use it at the same time when when got a bright idea. We traced the paper onto chipboard and cut it out to use as a template. Then when we want to use it we trace it onto our paper, cut it out and Presto!,  a very inexpensive solution that will last for a long time. And three years later I still use mine. Tomorrow I will add another layout with a special secret. Now I am off to get those creative juices flowing. I hope you will join me in the challenges as they are revealed.
Here is my raw chipboard template

Here is the finished layout
