Sunday Sketch III

Welcome back for week #3 of Sunday Sketches. I'm starting to think that we should call it Sunday Sketches that are almost posted on Monday, LOL! Things have been quite hectic this week with my husband being out of town and the course work affiliated with the 14 week advanced course I enrolled myself in. So much for my New Years resolution of not taking on more than I can handle. Sorry I know your not hear to read about my life, so drum roll please......

and my take on this weeks sketch.

I'm not completely in love with my take on this weeks sketch, I feel like it needs a bit more. I can't wait to see what you have all come up with. Just leave a comment with a link to your blog post or email your pictures to me and I will get them posted for everyone to see.

Thanks for visiting again,


January Sketch #2

On to our second Sunday Sketch! I have to say I have really enjoyed this weekly challenge so far. I start my week with a hunt for the perfect sketch at http://www.pagemaps.com/ . I absolutely love these sketches by Becky Fleck, they seem to take the intimidation out of scrapbooking for me.

Now not just any ole sketch will work, it has to speak to me, it usually says "use me with THIS paper", lol!  This weeks sketch came from the June 2009 archives and it  told me it liked My Mind's Eye paper agian. This time it was the Jack and Jill portion of their Quite Contrary line which has been one of my all time favorites. What I love about My Mind's Eye collections is all of the adorable coordinating embelishments at fabulous prices!

You will start to notice that I will rarely finish a layout without adding bling of some sort, either in the form of rhinestones, stickles, liquid pearls or viva decor pearl pens. I also love bright colors and buttons.

This is a layout of my friend Heather who has been one of the strongest supporters and people in my life. I couldn't do everything that I do without her, she helps me keep my head attached and she watches my boys for me. She always has a positive additude and great out. I'm so blessed to have her in my life!(Sorry about the poor picture quality, I'm still getting used to my new camera.)

Well Thanks for joining us again for week two, see you next week!
