Creatively Yours Sketch #50

This is Noella's 50th sketch and one of the requirements for this layout was to have it be an All About Me theme. Usually a subject I avoid in my layouts. LOL Since the sketch had places for 3 pictures I did a layout of 3 of the things I love the most. 1 - Coaching my kids sports teams. 2 - Reading good fantasy novels, sometimes over and over. (Note the distressed cover on one of my favourite books.) 3 - Diet Coke.

In celebration of Noella's milestone sketch all the design team did a layout for this sketch, so be sure to check out the Creatively Yours blog!

Creatively Yours Sketch #49

I had so much fun doing a layout for this sketch. I've had these pictures for almost a year and the sketch inspired me to finally scrap them. I used a technique I've been wanting to try for a while. I painted my chipboard and then stamped it with a small swirl stamp. Once the ink was dry, I covered it with Versamark ink and added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I did 3 layers of Versamark and embossing powder and I love the epoxy like finish it gave me.

Back on Track

For a while it seemed like I just could not get going when it came to scrapping. I am happy to say I seem to be back on track. I have done 3 layouts in the last week. Here is my latest using this month's Basic Grey sketch.

I was really challenged by this sketch but I'm very happy with how my layout came out.The second sketch is a Valentine's card sketch by Noella and it is just fantastic!

A Favourite Photo

We were out for a drive today and the whole family had their cameras along. I was trying out the B&W setting on my camera and I loved this picture so much, I just had to share.

Basic Grey Gallery & KC Challenge

I posted my February Challenge over at KC and did a sample layout for it using the Basic Grey sketch from May 2008. I submitted it to the Basic Grey Gallery last night and I got an e-mail this morning that they had posted it in their gallery. It has been quite a while since I had a layout in there, so I am very happy!
