have you seen this?

This is the latest special issue from PaperCrafts magazine.  It goes on sale officially tomorrow!  It was originally to be entitled "Go-To Sketches" but the editors wanted to make the terminology a bit more user friendly for those who may be new to the paper crafting/scrapbooking/cardmaking world.  It's full of 288 cards for all occasions based on 84 sketches.  I loved  seeing multiple interpretations of the same sketch.  It's one of my favorite idea books--tons of inspiration!  Definitely worth checking out.

I am thrilled to have a card in there.  Mine is based on sketch #38.

I used the 8x8 paper pack from the Rocket Age line by October Afternoon, some Jillibean Soup labels and stickers, and some old Making Memories mini alphas.  It's a swinging door boy card.  It was fun to make because I don't make very many boy/masculine cards.  I really should make more. =)
