I recently entered a sketch contest at our local scrapbook store, and won first place (1st place!). This is the first time for me to enter a scrapbook layout contest. The store does a monthly sketch contest. I have great competition for this months contest, MY MOTHER! I'm working on my October layout now. I'm not sure if you can link to the newsletter where my layout is posted for September on the Signed Sealed Delivered newsletter or not, but I have listed it here http://www.emailcontact.com/nl/nl-output.php?nl_id=123809&bus_id=3029&plain=0.
