My Mind's Eye: Challenge 7 - Scrap Bachelor Style!

This weekend we kicked off one our fabulous contests, "Scrap Bachelor" over at Life Preserver's.  My first scrappy assignment is to scrap one of our families favorite pasttimes or games.  Our favorite family thing to do is to hit the park!  After I selected my photos, I knew I wanted to get into that yummy My Mind's Eye, Breaking Free collection. 

I decided to pop on over to [stalk] the MME Blog to see if they had any CHA sneak peeks and discovered they were offering up a sketch challenge using 3 photos.  What a cool cooincidence, that is exactly what I had selected from  my favorite park pictures!  I loved the sketch so much I figured I would go with it. 

For this piece, I also did a little personal challenge... go outside my comfort zone.  White space, no flowers, hand written journaling, use some buttons and cardboard.  For me, pretty much everything that makes me freak out a bit.  So, guess what happened?  I actually really like it!  Here it is!
