Blog on

Alright now that the store is winding down and I feel the crafty bug biting me I think I will try to keep the blog up. I know it has been a very long time since I have been active in the blogging world but it will give me something to focus my time on. It has been a long year with lots of excitement, heartbreak and most importantly lessons that I have learned from. I am excited to move forward with my life and focus on new adventures and I'm excited to have you all join me along the way! I think I will start with some sketch challenges to get me warmed up again. This week I stumbled on this sketch over at Stuck on U Sketches go check out all the talented ladies over there if you get a chance and if you came from there, Thank You!

I have to say that I'm addicted to PageMaps they completely take the intimidation out of scrapbooking for me and I get my layouts done so much faster. Plus Becky Fleck (pagemaps creator) has years of archived sketches for you to choose from. Ok, alright, enough of my babbling already, drum roll please.......

January 2, 2011 Sketch


















Becky's Take:


















I used My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup Boy collection for this layout. It has been sitting in my closet begging to be used since I got it! I cut the hearts and title with my circut and gypsy and hand stitched the heart on the bottom. I add the two extra pictures so you could see some of the detail on this page. I hope you enjoy and thanks for joining me!
