Once Upon a Sketch, YSS, and MAGPIE CLUB REVEAL!!!

I am so excited to write this post today!  There is a lot going on during the 1st of the month!

This month, Your Scrapbook Stash is sponsoring Once Upon a...Sketch, challenge blog.  If you haven't visited this blog before, there are two challenges posted a month, one on the 1st and one on the 15th.  For each sketch, there is also a journaling requirement that differs every sketch.  It is a great way to make sure you get your memories down on your pages!!!

Not only do you have a chance to win at Once Upon a...Sketch, you also can link your page to YSS and win a prize there, too!  Here is the post to link at YSS.

Here is the May 1st sketch.  The journaling criteria is to use a journaling spot for your writing.

And here is my page.  My husband takes so much pride in his cooking, and he just beams when he has spent all day smoking a brisket and it comes out PERFECT!  :)  So here he is with his brisket, (and beer).

Now here's the great thing about my page: I made it with the May Magpie Club KIT!!!!! (and most of the items also happen to be available at YSS, too, individually.

Do you know what a Magpie is?  It is a bird related to a crow (but much prettier) that collects and hoards small bits and objects and shiny things.  Sound familiar?  My "nest" is overflowing with small scrappy bits and shiny things!  :)

This kit is absolutely gorgeous!  I am going to give you a few sneak peaks at a couple more pages I did, and then I will reveal them tomorrow!!!

PLEASE go visit the following sites.  You WON'T be disappointed!

Love the layout and sneaks! I'm notifying you right now that we're inviting ourselves over for the next brisket and we'll bring some Shiner...a great Texas beer if Keith hasn't tried it yet.
