Believe it or not, I actually have this week off from work! When Shelby offered to work for Carolyn and I so we could both have the week off, we were delighted and immediately said, "YES!" So in addition to enjoying time with my family and friends, traveling to and from Michigan, cleaning house and catching up on emails and blogs, I have managed to do a bit of scrapbooking!
I decided to play along with the Sketchy Thursdays sketch this week. Their sketches always seem to inspire me - they are the perfect style of sketch for me and I immediately feel creative when I see them!
This is the sketch they posted this week:
and this is my layout based on their sketch:
I also used a large '25' from a package of chipboard numbers and shapes by Martha Stewart. They were already the perfect green and fit in with the number pattern paper. This large title will also qualify for the challenge on the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum to use a big title on your page!
Last, but not least, I added some machine stitching (love it!) with my Hello Kitty Janome sewing machine - perfect for my craft projects :)
I hope you are finding time to do a bit of scrapbooking during the holidays. I am happy that I am!
