Good morning and welcome to another card sketch challenge from Sketch~N~Scrap.  I have some new stamps and paper to play with and couldn't wait to use it on this sketch. Unicorns are one of my favorite things and I'm loving this stampset!

This is the sketch...

And here is the card I came up with...

I used a bit of stickles on the horn and below the sentiment to add a little "sparkle" to the card.

Summer Memories

I'm enjoying some much needed scrapping time.  Since starting my new job, with weekends off, I find that my creative mojo has finally come back.  And with a little help from this awesome sketch challenge at Let's Get Sketchy I'm one page closer to finishing this album!

Here is the sketch

And her is my layout.  You can see it's sister HERE


I have been working on an heritage album for my mom for Christmas and I'm almost complete! I can't believe how fast its been going together.  These wonderful sketch challenges I've been doing have really made a big difference.  The pages just go together so quick and easy.

I used the sketch form Sketches In Thyme to create the layout below.

This is the sketch I used...

And here is my completed layout... You can see the sister page HERE.

Here is another layout for my mom's Christmas album.  I'm having such a good time working on this.  The only hard thing is coming up with different ways to use embellishments so each page doesn't have the same stuff.

I chose a sketch challenge from GrandDiva's Creative Corner for this layout.  It was a lot of fun and the layout came together quite nicely.

Here is my finished layout.  I used a die to create the title and after I cut it I had to do a internet search because it just didn't look right lol.  It's spelled correctly though. 

Title Page

Here is the first page my mom will see when she opens her album on Christmas.  It took me a bit to find the perfect picture but I finally found this one of her and my grandma.  Love it!

I used the following sketch form Stick it Down as inspiration for this layout.

Here is the finished layout.  I'm really happy with it except it seems that everything is just slightly tilted.  Hopefully my mom won't notice.


Here is another layout in the Christmas gift album I'm creating.  I'm loving how fast this is coming together.  I just might get this all done with time to spare!

I used a layout from Sketches In Thyme. It's somewhat similar to one of the other sketches I've done but I think it came out pretty good.

Here is my finished layout.  All about my grandpa. He was such a wonderful man.

Here I am plugging away on another layout for my mother's Christmas present.  I so can't wait to see her face when I give this to her! I'm loving making a homemade gift for her and something she'll treasure for ever.

I created this layout using the sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.

I changed it up just a bit so I could use the larger photo of my grandmother.  This is the 2nd half to a double page spread.  You can see the first one HERE
