Sketches and MSR

This layout started out as SCS Sketch Challenge 154. 154? I don’t do the sketches in order. I go through the SCS Sketch Forum and usually just pick one that appeals to me. With this card I modified the panel sizes (2-3) and didn’t add a panel (4-b). Since I changed it a bit I didn’t upload my card into the Sketch Gallery. I used the image Best Pals from Inky Antics, all cardstock and designer paper is from Close to My Heart (CTMH).

This last Saturday was Mountain Shadow Riders first meeting for 2008. Since it’s my goal to get more involved with MSR, I joined the MSR Welcoming Committee (we haven’t come up with a fun name yet). We’ll get in contact with new members, send out information packets, and buddy up with them at meetings and events… basically, make all new members feel welcomed! Also, Christine (our MSR Chapter Director) asked me if I would be interested in being our Historian. Of course I said yes! I LOVE taking photos. I’m so excited that I’m taking digital courses at my local camera shop for the next few months… I don’t want to disappoint the MSR ladies!
