Favorite Things

My three favorite people in the whole world! :) I love this photo of Derek and the girls, and when I saw this weeks sketch, I knew it was perfect for the photo, I have been wanting to scrap it since I took it, but it never seemed to fit anywhere, every time I tried scrapping it it just wasn't right...does that ever happen to you? I find it happens alot, I get my heart set on a certain photo and a certain layout, and by the time I am finished its nothing like I thought :) This one though, once I got it going, came together so easily and exactly like I wanted! :)

Lots of Authentiques Uncommon on this layout...I love the colors in that collection...I threw in a little Studio Calico Classic Calico wood grain to "man it up" a little. :)

Here is the fabulous sketch that was the start of this layout:

New Sketchy Thursdays Reveal!!

Its Thursday, which means a new sketch is up over at Sketchy Thursdays!
This weeks sketch is another fabulous one!! :)

Reveal 10/20, Due 10/18

So many possibilities with this sketch! All that area for journaling, white space, anything and everything you can think of could come from this sketch.

Here is my take:

I decided to measure out some different angles strips instead of the torn edges. I really like the way this one came together...the only part I'm really not happy with is the journaling. I had thoughts of writing this wonderful letter, and then I get to that point and my mind goes blank, I can't find a spot where I like the journaling, it just turned into a big I just kept it short and sweet. Still not 100% happy with the placement, but you'll have that I suppose. :)

Hope you all get a chance to play along this week!! Head on over to Sketchy Thursdays to get all of the details and play along for this weeks fabulous prize! :)

Sketchy Thursdays

It's Thursday, which means a new sketch is up over at Sketchy Thursdays, and it also means this is my first layout as a design team member! I am still kinda shocked that I am a part of this team with all of the other amazingly talented ladies. :)

Here is the fun sketch for this week:

Here is my take:

I want to say thanks to the talented Jen Jockisch for the title inspiration...she recently had a layout up at the Crate Paper blog, and sisterhood was her title, the minute I saw it I knew I wanted to use it for these photos. :)

I switched the sketch up just a little bit, which just shows how very versatile this sketch is...hope you find time to join in this week!! Head over to Sketchy Thursdays and see what the rest of the design team created, and join in for your chance at this weeks fabulous prize!!
