I'm changing up this blog a bit! I'll be posting sketches but there will be a twist! You have to BLEND the sketch with a song! I love listening to Sirius radio and The Blend station plays a wonderful "blend" of great songs! So I'll be posting a layout and card sketch ON THE 1ST OF EACH MONTH, and along with it 5 songs to choose from to inspire you. You can let the title inspire you or choose a stanza from the song, or even let the theme of the song inspire you!



Looking for Sponsors!

~ONE STEP AT A TIME Jordin Sparks

You will find the lyrics to these songs HERE.

Here's the first reveal from our layout design team #4!! I did not require the team to do this challenge as I only gave them the sketches a few days ago but most of the ladies did it and did a marvelous job.I'm sure you will agree!
