I started with a sketch....

For me, coming up with scrapbook layout ideas is really hard; that's why almost all of my layouts (at least the full-size ones) start with a sketch that someone else has drawn and shared. Most of the time, I stay pretty close to the sketch design.

But occasionally, I go beyond the design, as I did with the January 15 "Let's Get Sketchy" sketch by Brenshevia:


It's a fantastic sketch in its own right, but I decided to combine it with another challenge. That led to my adding several additional elements, which added up to this layout:



The little snow bunny is my youngest granddaughter, who took her first sled ride this weekend. The papers and embellishments are from Crate Paper's Snow & Cocoa and Falala collections,

I also finished two layouts inspired by the "Stick It Down" weekend crop on facebook. The first is my creation from a "blind challenge", using the January kit from Citrus Twist Kits:


The second one is my take on the January 21 sketch on the Citrus Twist Kit blog, using the December kit and add-ons. I had some lighting issues (we live in one of the sunniest cities in the country, but it was overcast this weekend)


And this one was based on the January 14 sketch on the Citrus twist Kits blog; I used the main December kit:


My scrapbooking time is still limited as I continue to rehabilitate from hip replacement surgery, but I'm hoping to increase that slowly over the nextfew weeks. Thanks for stopping by; have a great day!
