SSM & Pagemaps!

How fun is this?!

This month Scrappin' Sports & More sponsored Pagemaps! This week the Design Team's sketches will be featured on the SSM blog!

This sketch was super fun for me because it was a 2-page 8.5x11 sketch - something totally different for me and I LOVE how it turned out! :)
