Project PageMaps 1-1

Today is my first layout in my personal challenge Project PageMaps. I am working from the 1st book and I started with the first sketch. You can find it on page 10 if you have the book. I don't want to post a picture of the sketch here because I'm not sure if I could get in trouble with any copyright stuff.

Yes, I am that far behind on my scrapbooking! This is my little guy at 4 years old, I still can't get over how darn cute he was. I just adore this picture taken of him at preschool. He was one of the teacher's favorite little kids. I know this because every day when I would go to pick him up Teacher Doris was always holding him and she would give him the biggest hugs when it was time to leave.

Next week I will be working on the 2nd sketch in the book found on page 12 and will post it on Wednesday (and every Wed from then on).  If you have this book and want to play along with me, email me a picture of your layout and I'll post it here with mine. If several of you want to play, I can even add a Mr. Linky. This isn't a challenge, there are no prizes...this is just to get me to make more layouts and TRY to get caught up. I hope it inspires you to get more layouts done too!

I'll be back on Monday with another challenge from The Kraft Journal!
