Layout Sketch Challenge #1

I am very excited about today's CHF challenge. We just recently added a "Scrap Chat" area to the forum area of the web site. To encourage participation in our scrap chat forum, we're going to start off with hosting bi-weekly scrap layout challenges.

There are so many great ways to use Cornish Heritage Farms stamps in your layouts. I started in paper crafting as a scrap booker but have gotten away from it over the years as I got more into stamping. In the back of my mind I knew you could
combine stamping with scrap booking but just hadn't fully embraced the concept. So....now I am having a blast challenging myself to start scrapping again...WITH my stamps.

Here are two layouts that I made using this sketch. What do you think?
